My talk at BSides London "AWS vs Azure Security" is now online:
Part 5: counting the cost
My 44CON Cloud Security and DevSecOps training course this September includes AWS, Azure and GitHub accounts which the students use so they don’t need to create their own. As I described in Part 1, I also decided to build a training platform, so that students can connect to a virtual desktop in the cloud with all the software they need pre-installed.
That way they can come on to the course with any laptop or even tablet which supports the Amazon WorkSpaces client.
I built the supporting infrastructure in AWS using Terraform which you can read about in Part 2 of my blog, and then scripted user setup across all environments as described in Part 3. And as you might expect, I incorporated lots of security features, and wrote about them in Part 4.
In this last blog of the series, you’ll hear about a lost USB key, the bill, feedback to Amazon and their response. Click on the "Read More" link below to view.
