July 24, 2012
Government and Education customers are eager to move their applications to the cloud to save money and increase efficiency, but they need to carefully consider how application security changes in a cloud environment. Application software running on or being developed for cloud computing platforms presents different security challenges depending on the delivery model of the particular platform. Amazon Web Services (AWS) Worldwide Public Sector and its cloud partners can help.
Please join us for our “Building and Securing Applications in the Cloud” event on July 24, at the Renaissance Washington, DC Downtown Hotel.

You can choose the sessions that best apply to your situation and will help you get started or dive deeper into specific solutions.

You will also have an opportunity to meet AWS experts and get your technical questions answered by our cloud partners at the Solutions Showcase.
