2020 Live Online Training
Hands-on Cloud Security

October 26—27, 2020 | 1:00 PM - 3:30 PM ET
Web Conference

Every organization is in the cloud, in some way shape, or form. To many security practitioners, it’s still rather mystical. In this introductory course, IANS Faculty member Mike Rothman will explain the basics of cloud computing. This includes setting up an account in AWS, configuring IAM rules and virtual networks, securing an instance and running vulnerability scans in the environment. By the end of this two-day training, everyone in the class will have built and secured a simple WordPress site.

Target Audience

Personnel that want to understand how to set up a cloud computing program, including Security Analysts and Systems Administrators for Network Security and Security Operations.

Prerequisite Knowledge

A basic understanding of security fundamentals. You should know what most or all of the following terms mean: IAM, federated identity, hypervisor, SSH, key management, SDLC, IDS, and DLP. We cover more, but if you know most of those, you are ready. We also highly recommend you know how to use SSH and aren't afraid of entering a few pre-scripted commands into a terminal since we will be connecting to Linux instances.

Hardware Required

Participants will require a personal AWS account and a device that can access the AWS Console, utilize a terminal application, and connect to cloud-based resources over HTTP and SSH without using a VPN.

**Note: all labs use Amazon Web Services, and students will need a laptop and an AWS account to be able to launch and connect to an instance (instructions are sent before class).

Mike Rothman

IANS Faculty
Mike has been in the information security industry for over 10 years. He is currently President and Analyst at Securosis, a firm exclusively focused on information security and research analysis. He started Security Incite in 2006 to provide the "voice of reason" in what was considered an overhyped, yet underwhelming security industry. After a brief detour as SVP, Strategy and Chief Marketing Officer at eIQNetworks, Mike joined Securosis at the start of 2010 with a "rejuvenated cynicism" about security. In 2007, Mike published "The Pragmatic CSO" to introduce technically oriented security professionals to the nuances of what is required to become a senior security professional. Mike graduated from Cornell University with a degree in Operations Research and Industrial Engineering.
