AWS Security Governance at Scale (SGS)

 

Course Overview

Security is foundational to AWS. Governance at scale is a new concept for automating cloud governance that can help companies retire manual processes in account management, budget enforcement, and security and compliance. By automating common challenges, companies can scale without inhibiting agility, speed, or innovation. In addition, they can provide decision makers with the visibility, control, and governance necessary to protect sensitive data and systems.

In this course, you will learn how to facilitate developer speed and agility, and incorporate preventive and detective controls. By the end of this course, you will be able to apply governance best practices.
