Cloud Computing has become the force-multiplier that organizations are turning to, in ever-increasing numbers, today. Cloud provides the possibility of setting up and scaling massive compute, analytics and data management infrastructure with incredible ease and incredible cost savings.

Lack of awareness and skills lead to massive security holes and consequently, exploits against organizations’ cloud infrastructure and applications.
In this class, we aim to take a “cookbook” approach to Cloud Security Automation. We start with understanding automation possibilities in the cloud.

All of this, leveraging the myriad tools and services that are made available by cloud providers like AWS and Azure
