Multiple layers of defense are required to protect your AWS environment. The first step is to reduce your overall attack surface to reduce exposure, in ways such as hardening your Amazon EC2 operating systems and configuring your containers. Organizations can then implement tools, such as a cloud security posture management (CSPM) solutions, to monitor and manage risk.

In this prerecorded webcast, SANS instructor Dave Shackleford and AWS Marketplace explore best practices and provide practical guidance on how you can secure your entire AWS footprint. They will also present real-world use cases and examples of tools you can leverage to protect your investments.

Attendees at this webcast will learn how to:

  • Decrease their attack surface to limit exposure

  • Implement automation for monitoring and continuous protection
  • Leverage AWS services and seller solutions in AWS Marketplace to protect AWS services and surfaces
