Course Overview
Welcome to Pluralsight and this Blue Team tools course featuring Scout Suite, the open source cloud infrastructure analysis tool developed and maintained by NCC Group. Cloud services are exploding in numbers and complexity, and a simple configuration mistake could let an opportunistic attacker take control of your entire deployment and data. Using Scout Suite, we will analyze the configuration to be sure that dangerous issues are known and can be fixed. Scout Suite used to be called Scout2, which was an AWS‑only tool. It was renamed to Scout Suite as it now supports most major infrastructure cloud vendors. Come join me as we'll build a dangerous cloud environment, analyze it, fix some issues, and learn how Scout Suite works.
