Effective IAM for AWS

Effective IAM book

Learn how to secure AWS with IAM built for continuous delivery.

1. AWS Identity and Access Management deep dive (IAM301)

Building secure applications and workloads on AWS means knowing your way around AWS Identity and Access Management (AWS IAM). This session is geared toward the curious builder who wants to learn practical IAM skills for defending workloads and data, with a technical, first-principles approach. Gain knowledge about what IAM is and a deeper understanding of how it works and why.

Date and Time: Tuesday, July 26 @ 12:30 PM 

Job role: Architect, Engineer

Services: IAM

Recording: IAM301 IAM Deep Dive (YouTube)

Bonus Resources

Prepare for this session by brushing up on the fundamentals of IAM principals, policies, and evaluation logic with Control access to any resource (Effective IAM for AWS).

2. Developing preventive controls with AWS identity services (IAM332)

Learn about how you can develop and apply preventive controls at scale across your organization using service control policies (SCPs). This chalk talk is an extension of the preventive controls within the AWS identity services guide, and it covers how you can meet the security guidelines of your organization by applying and developing SCPs. In addition, it presents strategies for how to effectively apply these controls in your organization, from day-to-day operations to incident response.

3. Applying attribute-based access control using AWS IAM (IAM375)

This workshop provides hands-on experience applying attribute-based access control (ABAC) to achieve a secure and scalable authorization model on AWS. Learn how and when to apply ABAC, which is native to AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM). Also learn how to find resources that could be impacted by different ABAC policies and session tagging techniques to scale your authorization model across Regions and accounts within AWS.

4. AWS IAM policy evaluation in action (IAM473)

In this workshop, dive deep into the logic of AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) policy evaluation. Gain experience with hands-on labs that walk through IAM use cases, and learn how different policies interact with each other. Using identity-based and resource-based policies within single-account and cross-account scenarios, learn about the evaluation logic that you can apply in your own environment.

5. Building a data perimeter to allow access to authorized users (IAM371)

In this workshop, learn how to create a data perimeter by building controls that allow access to data only from expected network locations and by trusted identities. The workshop consists of five modules, each designed to illustrate a different AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) and network control. Learn where and how to implement the appropriate controls based on different risk scenarios. Discover how to implement these controls as service control policies, identity- and resource-based policies, and virtual private cloud endpoint policies.
