2016 is shaping up to be an interesting and exciting time at Secure Ideas. We have always done training in one form or another. Many of you may have first heard of Secure Ideas through the training that we have done for organizations such as SANS, DerbyCon, Blackhat, OWASP, MISTI, Princeton University, Columbia University, and our webcasts. The evolution has continued this year and we are very proud to announce our first full length, on demand training class: Tactical Sec Ops: Cloud Edition!
This course is the same two-day course that we are launching at DerbyCon 6.0, but it will also be available via our online training platform! You can check the training site out by going to www.secureideastraining.com. Tactical Sec Ops: Cloud Edition will be released after DerbyCon at the end of September 2016!
So what is Tactical Sec Ops: Cloud Edition about? IT has changed quite a bit over the years and there has been a huge push to move systems to cloud computing. Unfortunately, a lot of what we are familiar with in security doesn’t translate real well to this model. Firewalls? Nope, now we have security groups. How about network IDS? Nope, we don’t have access to all our network traffic anymore. Fortunately, not everything is new and unfamiliar, so there’s a lot of common ground to build on!
TSO: CE is designed to jump start your understanding of Amazon’s AWS offerings specifically (and cloud computing in general) and covers how we can secure, monitor and assess our AWS based systems. Here are some of the highlights from the course:
- Introduction to Cloud Computing and AWS
- Understanding and Working with Elastic Cloud Computing (EC2)
- Identity and Access Management (IAM) Basics
- AWS API Setup and Usage
- Amazon’s Simple Storage Service (S3)
- Understanding Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (VPC)
- Command Line Tools
- Automation within AWS
- Configuring AWS for Developers
- Security Monitoring in AWS
- Using the AWS WAF
- Getting Familiar with AWS Inspector
TSO: CE is a hands-on class, so be prepared for exercises that will get you acquainted with AWS’ console and services. Labs will walk you through setting up, tuning and monitoring your cloud environment. If you would like to learn more about the class and get notified when the class becomes available, just complete the form below. We’ll keep you up to date on what’s going on and when registration is available. We are really excited to offer this course and are looking forward to seeing you in class!
