Syllabus: The introduction of cloud computing has revolutionized the tech world. The easy accessibility of large storage options and cheap computing power has resulted in the Cloud becoming one of the most popular forms of data storage and computational infrastructure. In addition to data storing, cloud computing has also become a standard for creating manageable and scalable web application services.
MISI leverages cloud technology to host a number of applications and solutions.The US Government utilizes a variety of cloud options to also host major applications and services.This series of lectures and short courses will introduce you to the basics of AWS. The lectures will discuss how MISI hosts various application is the AWS cloud and what the different security reasons are for certain AWS hosting decisions made by MISI.
As part of your CyberShip, you will work with and use AWS hosted cyber applications along with your MISI team members.
Amazon Web Services (AWS) is the market leader in IaaS (Infrastructure-as-a-Service) and PaaS (Platform-as-a-Service) for cloud ecosystems, which can be combined to create a scalable cloud application without worrying about delays related to infrastructure provisioning (compute, storage, and network) and management.
Amazon entered the cloud market in 2006 and has turned into the most popular public cloud service provider with its current AWS (Amazon Web Services).

Syllabus: Defense Industrial Base customers who use AWS to host applications will need to understand how AWS helps them to comply with the CMMC and how it does not help them comply and they have additional work to do to meet DoD’s CMMC compliance requirements. MISI has numerous customers that use AWS and part of your CyberShip will require you to understand that when you engage with a customer that is using AWS in whole or in part, what you must do to assess compliance with the CMMC practices.
You will be able to:
- Understand what inheritance is and the role it plays in CMMC compliance
- Seek out where the AWS inheritance and other compliance documents reside on the web
- Explain why a company who hosts all of their IT infrastructure in AWS is still not 100% compliant with the CMMC
- Discuss the approach to achieving compliance when a customer who hosts their applications partially or entirely on AWS
Now let’s get some more real world experience working on cyber issues in the Defense Industrial Base. This session is part of your CyberShip work schedule. You will work on assignments as an individual and assignments with your group. At this stage you should be getting comfortable with the various tools and even if you are not 100% comfortable you can ask questions and get the support you need to complete your assigned tasking. Remember, that at any time you could be called to join a video call with a customer or to attend a standup. Always be prepared and organized.
