Gamified Learning
TryHackMe's walk-through content, supported by hacking streaks and badges, makes learning engaging. Experience first-hand how attackers target and exploit various services within AWS and what mitigations can be implemented to prevent this from happening.
Generate Sandboxed AWS Environments on Demand
Our environment replicates the level of access that users would have in real-world environments; We provide each user with access to their own AWS environment through API keys and the console. Each user can generate their own scenarios around various services in AWS including IAM, EC2, VPC and more. Within a matter of minutes, users are able to work across scenarios in various AWS services and apply this learning to the real world.
Training Modules
Our modules will help users get hands-on experience with common security weaknesses around the most commonly used AWS services and also cover mitigations to help them secure these services.
