These best practices will save your organization thousands of dollars, improve security, boost performance and also give you a new level of fault tolerance.

Logs are a great resource for problem solving, in order to use logs on AWS you must understand AWS CloudTrail.n  In this course, you will learn how to log events on all your AWS accounts, or by region. You will also learn how you can get more from CloudTrail such as being alerted, integration with other tools, encryption and much more.

If you work with IT you know that to manage users, groups, permissions, etc. can be difficult. AWS IAM is a resource that you can use to improve the security of your cloud environment. This course will teach you everything you need to know to start dealing with all IAM configuration including policies creation, encryption with your personal keys (AWS KMS) and much more.

The amount of time that an admin takes in order to do a security assessment in a server may take up to hours, now imagine if this admin needs to do this in many servers. This course will introduce you to AWS Inspector, the security assessment tool created by Amazon that will make your life easy. In this course you will learn how to do security assessments, schedule using AWS Lambda, get alerts with CloudWatch and learn about the AWS Inspector Security Packages.
