Risk Management Strategy with Terrascan

by Chris Blackden

In this course, you will learn the setup, configuration, and validation of terraform infrastructure in an enterprise environment using Terrascan.

What you'll learn

DevSecOps pipelines are setup to scan for code vulnerabilities alongside unit and integration tests. If you have your application’s infrastructure defined using a tool like Terraform, you can use the same principals for your infrastructure code as well. In this course, Risk Management Strategy with Terrascan, you’ll cover how to utilize Terrascan to secure a live enterprise environment. First, you’ll demonstrate setting up and configuring the tool. Next, you’ll apply fixes to infrastructure code detected by Terrascan. Finally, you’ll simulate remediating detected vulnerabilities detected by Terrascan. When you’re finished with this course, you’ll have the skills and knowledge to identify, protect, detect, or respond to threats in your network systems.
