Join me in Boston this July for AWS re:Inforce 2022

I’d like to personally invite you to attend the Amazon Web Services (AWS) security conference, AWS re:Inforce 2022, in Boston, MA on July 26–27. This event offers interactive educational content to address your security, compliance, privacy, and identity management needs. Join security experts, customers, leaders, and partners from around the world who are committed to the highest security standards, and learn how to improve your security posture.

As the new Chief Information Security Officer of AWS, my primary job is to help our customers navigate their security journey while keeping the AWS environment safe. AWS re:Inforce offers an opportunity for you to understand how to keep pace with innovation in your business while you stay secure. With recent headlines around security and data privacy, this is your chance to learn the tactical and strategic lessons that will help keep your systems and tools secure, while you build a culture of security in your organization.

AWS re:Inforce 2022 will kick off with my keynote on Tuesday, July 26. I’ll be joined by Steve Schmidt, now the Chief Security Officer (CSO) of Amazon, and Kurt Kufeld, VP of AWS Platform. You’ll hear us talk about the latest innovations in cloud security from AWS and learn what you can do to foster a culture of security in your business. Take a look at the most recent re:Invent presentation, Continuous security improvement: Strategies and tactics, and the latest re:Inforce keynote for examples of the type of content to expect.

For those who are just getting started on AWS, as well as our more tenured customers, AWS re:Inforce offers an opportunity to learn how to prioritize your security investments. By using the Security pillar of the AWS Well-Architected Framework, sessions address how you can build practical and prescriptive measures to protect your data, systems, and assets.

Sessions are offered at all levels and for all backgrounds, from business to technical, and there are learning opportunities in over 300 sessions across five tracks: Data Protection & Privacy; Governance, Risk & Compliance; Identity & Access Management; Network & Infrastructure Security; and Threat Detection & Incident Response. In these sessions, connect with and learn from AWS experts, customers, and partners who will share actionable insights that you can apply in your everyday work. At AWS re:Inforce, the majority of our sessions are interactive, such as workshops, chalk talks, boot camps, and gamified learning, which provides opportunities to hear about and act upon best practices. Sessions will be available from the intermediate (200) through expert (400) levels, so you can grow your skills no matter where you are in your career. Finally, there will be a leadership session for each track, where AWS leaders will share best practices and trends in each of these areas.

At re:Inforce, hear directly from AWS developers and experts, who will cover the latest advancements in AWS security, compliance, privacy, and identity solutions—including actionable insights your business can use right now. Plus, you’ll learn from AWS customers and partners who are using AWS services in innovative ways to protect their data, achieve security at scale, and stay ahead of bad actors in this rapidly evolving security landscape.

A full conference pass is $1,099. However, if you register today with the code ALUMkpxagvkV you’ll receive a $300 discount (while supplies last).

We’re excited to get back to re:Inforce in person; it is emblematic of our commitment to giving customers direct access to the latest security research and trends. We’ll continue to release additional details about the event on our website, and you can get real-time updates by following @AWSSecurityInfo. I look forward to seeing you in Boston, sharing a bit more about my new role as CISO and providing insight into how we prioritize security at AWS.
