Why Should You Attend?

This is a unique course that is on the cloud and for the cloud. It helps train individuals on cloud terminologies and enables them to build scalable defense mechanisms for their services running in the public cloud. The training explicitly focuses on threat detection, Incident response, malware investigations, and forensic analysis of cloud infrastructure which is still a very less known domain in the market. The training is not going to use cloud-native security tools, but going to focus more on building analysis pipelines that are generic and can be implemented in any cloud environment.

Course Description

This training takes both investigator and builder approach towards security. It teaches you the fundamentals of cloud infrastructure security and focuses on building highly scalable threat detection, monitoring, and response tools by using cloud-native services like serverless, containers, object stores, IAM/AD, logic apps, SQL/KQL queries and much more.

By the end of this training, we will be able to (applies to both AWS & Azure):
