Sobre este curso
How do you protect the critical data that is increasingly being stored in the cloud? Learn how to build a security strategy that keeps data safe and mitigates risk.
In this course, part of the Cloud Computing MicroMasters program, you will be introduced to industry best practices for cloud security and learn how to architect and configure security-related features in a cloud platform. Case studies and government standard documents will be reviewed to help ensure appropriate levels of security are implemented.
You’ll develop the necessary skills to identify possible security issues in the cloud environment. You will also gain experience with tools and techniques that monitor the environment and help prevent security breaches such as monitoring logs and implementing appropriate security policies.

Is this offer just for students who purchase a Verified Certificate?
No, all students are eligible for the $50 promotional AWS credit in CC 617. If you purchase a Verified Certificate you will receive an additional $200 promotional AWS credit upon completion of your final project if you earn at least an 80% on that project.
How do I receive my AWS promotional credit?
Before beginning your first AWS lab you will find general lab instructions and a link to AWS Educate to request the AWS credit. If you cannot find the link within the instructions, please post in the course discussion forum and one of our teaching assistants will assist you.
What is the AWS lab?
In CC 617 there are several hands-on labs that are designed to help students understand some of the AWS services. For audit learners (those who do not purchase a Verified Certificate), these labs are optional but we encourage you to complete them. For verified learners (those who purchase a Verified Certificate of Achievement), the labs are a required piece of your final project (or part of the preparation for your final project).
If I don’t finish the course do I get to keep the AWS promotional credit?
How do I receive my $200 AWS promotional credit?
Purchase a Verified Certificate in this course and earn at least 80% on the final project. Once you submit your final project, check back in the course 5 business days after the end of the course for the link to receive your $200 promotional AWS credit (instructor needs 5 days following course end to grade your work before the link will appear).
To be eligible to receive the $200 promotional AWS credit, do I need to earn 80% or higher in the course or 80% or higher just on the final project?
80% or higher on the final project.
If I am having issues accessing the AWS promotional credits, whom do I contact?
Please contact AWS Educate at the following link: https://aws.amazon.com/education/awseducate/contact-us/. Should there be any issues with the course itself, the lab, or your final project submission, contact the UMUC course team via the course discussion forum.
Are there any geography restrictions for this offer?
Can I use the credits on anything?
The credits can be used for most AWS services, but there are some exclusions. See https://aws.amazon.com/awscredits/ for restrictions and limitations.
¿Quién puede hacer este curso?
Lamentablemente, las personas de uno o más de los siguientes países o regiones no podrán registrarse para este curso: Irán, Cuba y la región de Crimea en Ucrania. Si bien edX consiguió licencias de la Oficina de Control de Activos Extranjeros de los EE. UU. (U.S. Office of Foreign Assets Control, OFAC) para ofrecer nuestros cursos a personas en estos países y regiones, las licencias que hemos recibido no son lo suficientemente amplias como para permitirnos dictar este curso en todas las ubicaciones. edX lamenta profundamente que las sanciones estadounidenses impidan que ofrezcamos todos nuestros cursos a cualquier persona, sin importar dónde viva.
