Security Sessions at re:Invent 2013

AWS re:Invent 2013, AWS’s second annual conference for developers and technical leaders, is less than a month away.  We have some great sessions and activities lined up to ensure that content quality is high and that your questions are answered.

Update (20 May 2014): For links to the session videos and slide presentations from AWS re:Invent 2013, see the blog entry Recap of re:Invent Sessions. We’ve removed links from this post to the AWS re:Invent 2013 site. Be sure to visit the AWS re:Invent 2014 site!

Last year’s inaugural event went so well that AWS has added 50% more sessions. This of course also means more security and compliance sessions!  Sessions this year will marquis some great technical and business leaders from AWS.  We will also showcase some customers and partners who are proven thought leaders in security and compliance.

If you’re planning to go, now is the time to organize agenda to get the most out of the following 20-plus security and compliance oriented sessions. You can use the “Add to My Favorites” button in the Session Catalog to make it easier to plan while letting us know how many seats to reserve.
