Attending RSA in San Francisco? Visit the AWS Pop-up Loft for Security Talks!

Many of my colleagues will be heading to San Francisco next week for the RSA conference. In order to make your time in San Francisco even more worthwhile, you may want to consider attending some security sessions at the AWS Pop-up Loft on Market Street (a short walk from Moscone Center). The talks (from our team and from our customers) will cover a wide variety of topics including securing IoT devices and applications, protecting millions of customers, and complying with government regulations.

Here is the schedule:

On Monday, February 29th the AWS Security, Risk, Compliance, Security Solution Architecture, and Professional Services teams will be holding a happy hour / mixer from 3 PM to 5 PM. You can meet members of the teams learn about our security assurance automation program, ask questions, learn about opportunities on the team and find out more about our their plans. The first 100 attendees can also grab a free T-shirt!
