In this workshop, we help you understand how you can help protect your web applications from threats cost effectively by using AWS WAF and Amazon CloudFront. As attacks and attempts to exploit vulnerabilities in web applications become more sophisticated and automated, having an effective web request filtering solution becomes key to keeping your users' data safe. We will cover common attack vectors and what you can do to mitigate them. You will learn how to leverage AWS WAF in conjunction with Amazon CloudFront to detect unwanted traffic and block it using simple configurations and automations.
Participants should have an AWS account established and available for use during the workshop.
Please bring your own laptop.
