INTRODUCTION TO SECURITY IN AWS

For the labs this week, we will be using the Lab materials provided by AWS that are part of the AWS Well-Architected Labs web site, located at: https://www.wellarchitectedlabs.com/security/

You will be assigned specific labs to execute for the week.

You will be expected to use an AWS Free Tier account for the execution of the labs. If you already have an AWS account, the cost, in most cases, is less than a dollar per month. I STRONGLY recommend that after you have completed the labs, you tear down (remove) any lab artifacts that will be charge. The labs also recommend the teardown of the lab when complete so please follow those instructions to avoid any unexpected charges.

For this week, we will be executing the following labs:
