Course Preview

CyberForce’s AWS Bootcamp is a hands-on heavy course that combines hands on interactive learning modules with a knowledgeable instructor with more than ten years of experience in IT, Cybersecurity, and Cloud Systems.

Interactive learning modules include:

Following introduction to Cloud Security, Shared Responsibility Model, and Cloud Knowledge bases, the class focuses on the following 5 modules. Most of the learning is in line with hands on classes.

Module 1

Administration, you will learn how to on ramp to AWS. You will work on AWS Console, AWS CLI and create a simple LAMP stack using Cloud Formation. You will ceate an EC2 machine and gain access to it. You will also setup S3 bucket. To gain access of course you will have to setup users and roles.

Module 2

Audit, you will audit your own actions done under Module 1 by looking in to CloudTrail logs.

Module 3

Build, you will be building Infrastructure as code using CloudFormation and other tools.

Module 4

Test, you will then learn to review CloudFormation as though you are doing a code review. We will use tools such as CloudSploit (basic and introductory) to understand security issues in Infrasturcure as Code. We will then walk through a few of the lessons learnt by the instructors in working with CloudFormation.

Module 5

you will quickly review a few AWS best practices, understand a few Enterprise considerations (enterprise = multi-cloud + onprem), and the CIS benchmark.

You will then assess a sample stack using a few of the CIS benchmark checks. You will also understand how to leverage Trusted Advisory and AWS Inspector. As time permits you will look over the reports they produce.

Module 6

Monitoring, Alerting, Auditing, and Incident Response

Lab will cover some of the topics mentioned above to provide you hands-on training.
