Though migrating to the cloud is one of the uphill tasks that most companies go through, one of the important if not the most important tasks is to monitor the cloud resources once the migration is completed to avoid some of the unpleasant issues like increased cost due to mismanaged resources, reduced customer satisfaction because of unmonitored metrics. In this course, Monitoring AWS Cloud Security, you will learn how to address issues like these.

Next, you will explore how to communicate system events across accounts and how to automatically respond and recover to system events of your AWS resources. Finally, you will discover how to create a graphical dashboard to monitor all these highly critical metrics from one single location. When you are finished with this course, you will have the skills and knowledge to create and monitor metrics, set up alerts, and create dashboards to monitor various AWS resources.
