Learning Path

CSP Security Features

Gain hands-on experience with the three major cloud providers: AWS, Azure and GCP.

What you will learn

Explore the ins and outs of choosing and working with AWS, Azure and GCP. For each cloud provider, we will review the native security controls they offer across several security domains, discuss the drawbacks of each cloud provider and look at areas to consider when working with that provider and solutions you should have in mind when moving to that provider. At the end of each course, students will have the opportunity to complete a course project that will give them hands-on experience with securing workloads, using common services in each provider.
