Course Overview
Hi everyone. My name is Chad Smith, and welcome to my course, Implementing Amazon Inspector. I am an AWS certified architect and trainer, and have spent many years in operations, security, and architecture. Security audits can be time consuming and difficult. Performing security audits in the cloud can be confusing, especially in interpreting the results. AWS provides a managed service to assist customers with OS-based security audits called Amazon Inspector. Some of the major topics that we will cover include installing the Inspector Agent, both manually and through automation, choosing which rule packages to apply, and managing the findings and automated remediation. By the end of this course, you'll have all the knowledge necessary to implement Amazon Inspector in your own environment, both manually and using automation. Before beginning the course, you should be familiar with EC2 and the AWS Console. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn how to perform security audits in AWS with Implementing Amazon Inspector, at Pluralsight.
