Improve Your AWS Security

Security is important in any computing environment but when you start saving data to an external service you get the added dimension of having to secure user accounts and account settings in differnet ways. Amazon has added an instructional video describing how to set up one of their recommended, best practice security measures – multiple AWS Identity and Access Management users.

If you're an AWS newbie, IAM is the tool that allows you to set up and manage user access to your AWS account. Getting the settings right ensures that users can only access the services they need access to.

AWS Senior Technology Evangelist Simone Brunozzi has put together this short video that demonstrates how to set up an IAM user and start using it with AWS.
