In this short series, I outline the notes that I took while preparing for the AWS Cloud Practitioner exam.
These are my personal notes that I have made while working through the A Cloud Guru exam practitioner course. They are in no way official notes from AWS.
I would advise you that if you do use my notes to help you revise for this exam, that you use them as a supplement to the most recent information in the White Papers, Exam Guide and go over your knowledge with practice exam papers.

AWS Shared Responsibility Model
- AWS manages the security of the cloud, but the security in the cloud is the responsibility of the cloud is the customers.
- Customers retain control of security they choose to implement to protect their content, platform, applications, systems and networks.
- This is no different than they would in an on-site datacenter.
Try and remember the diagram above!
