Next, you’ll discover how to monitor the compliance, the traffic flowing through our network and perform the required paperwork for penetration testing. Then, you'll touch on how to secure the data flow by setting up access control lists, taking steps to mitigate vulnerability attacks and encrypt/decrypt the data, both at rest and in motion. Finally, you’ll see how to identify PII data and detect any malicious activities in the network. When you’re finished with this course, you’ll have the skills and knowledge of securing both AWS and hybrid network, and how to comply and monitor to the standards imposed by your organization that are needed to get your advanced networking certification.
