About this course

A large aspect of the daily responsibilities of cloud security involves monitoring, controlling, and optimizing identity and access management (IAM) of cloud resources and services. In fact, IAM is at the top of the AWS security triad pyramid; the other two being infrastructure security and key management. In this course, you will explore the key concepts of IAM at AWS, beginning with the least privilege principle and root account protection. Then you will discover how to work with AWS IAM, AWS IAM Identity Center. Finally, you will compare multi-factor authentication options and define cross-account roles. This course is one of a collection that prepares learners for the AWS Certified Cloud Practitioner (CLF-C02) exam.

Read on to learn what an AWS Developer does, the skills you need to become one, the salary you can expect to earn, and how you can get closer to your AWS professional goals by learning to code.
