AWS certifications add value for both technical and non-technical resources in today’s digital world. In this course, Introduction to Security and Architecture on AWS, you will learn foundational knowledge of both security on AWS as well as how to architect solutions on the platform. This information is valuable for anyone using AWS, but it is essential for preparing to take the AWS Certified Cloud Practitioner Exam. First, you will review three core concepts that affect how you use the platform: the AWS Well Architected Framework, the shared responsibility model, and the acceptable use policy. Then, you will learn security and user management on AWS. Next, you will discover key architectural concepts around fault tolerance, high-availability, and disaster recovery. Finally, you will explore concepts around scalable and secure applications on Amazon EC2. When you are finished with this course, you will have a clear understanding of the concepts needed for a portion of the AWS Certified Cloud Practitioner exam as well as the knowledge needed to begin implementing applications in the cloud.

Course Overview
Hello everyone. My name is David Tucker, and welcome to the course, Introduction to Security and Architecture on AWS. I'm a cloud consultant and I help organizations plan, build, and implement custom software solutions in the cloud. I have over 15 years of experience in software architecture and development, and during that time, few things have fundamentally changed computing like the cloud. AWS certifications add value for both technical and nontechnical resources in today's digital world. In this course, I will walk you through an introduction to both security on AWS, as well as how to architect solutions on the platform. This information is valuable for anyone using AWS, but it is essential for anyone taking the AWS Certified Cloud Practitioner exam. First, I will review three core concepts that affect how you use the platform, including the AWS Well‑Architected Framework, the Shared Responsibility Model, and the Acceptable Use Policy. Next, I will review security and user management on AWS, and then I will cover key architectural concepts around fault tolerance, high availability, and disaster recovery. Finally, I will review concepts around scalable and secure applications on Amazon EC2. When you finish this course, you will have a clear understanding of these concepts that are needed for a portion of the AWS Certified Cloud Practitioner exam, as well as the knowledge needed to begin implementing solutions in the cloud.
