Join us for a FREE technical event on how you can benefit from cloud architecture built to satisfy the requirements of the most security-sensitive organizations. AWS provides multiple security solutions and features to help you meet your security objectives and compliance requirements. This means that you can create a resilient environment with the security you need, but with much less work than an on-premises environment.

Attend this event to learn how AWS can help you improve your security and compliance programs using the AWS platform. We will also review recent AWS services launches that help increase the agility and maturity of security programs.

Topics will include (view session descriptions):

  • AWS Security Overview and “What’s New”
  • Network Security and Access Control within AWS
  • Protecting Your Data in AWS
  • Putting it All Together: Securing Systems at Cloud Scale

We will provide lunch during registration and an open Q&A session at the close of our event, giving you access to experienced AWS solutions architects and networking opportunities with other technical security professionals.

Technical security professionals – DevOps, engineers, and architects – who have basic familiarity with cloud computing concepts and AWS services, and want to gain further insight and learn best practices for AWS security solutions.

AWS Security Overview and “What’s New”
AWS and its partners offer a wide range of tools and features to help you to meet your security objectives. These tools mirror the familiar controls you deploy within your on-premises environments. AWS provides security-specific tools and features across network security, configuration management, access control and data security. In addition, AWS provides monitoring and logging tools to can provide full visibility into what is happening in your environment. In this session, you will get introduced to the range of security tools and features that AWS offers, and the latest security innovations coming from AWS.

Network Security and Access Control within AWS
AWS provides several security capabilities and services to increase privacy and control infrastructure access. Built-in firewalls allow you to create private networks within AWS, and also control network access to your instances and subnets. Identity and access management capabilities enable you to define individual user accounts with permissions across AWS resources. AWS also provides tools and features that enable you to see exactly what’s happening in your AWS environment. In this session, you will gain an understanding of preventive and detective controls at the infrastructure level on AWS. We will cover Identity and Access Management as well as the security aspects of Amazon EC2, Virtual Private Cloud (VPC), Elastic Load Balancing (ELB), and CloudTrail.

Protecting Your Data in AWS
AWS offers you the ability to add additional layers of security to your data at rest in the cloud, providing access control as well scalable and efficient encryption features. Flexible key management options allow you to choose whether to have AWS manage the encryption keys or to keep complete control over the keys yourself. In this session, you will learn how to secure data when using AWS services. We will discuss Key Management Service, S3, access controls, and database platform security features.

Putting it All Together: Securing Systems at Cloud Scale
The AWS platform offers a rich set of capabilities that can be leveraged by the customer to better control applications state, configuration, and supporting infrastructure throughout the service lifecycle – all while operating with security best practices such as audit and accountability, access control, change review and governance, and systems integrity. We will showcase and discuss design patterns for using these capabilities in synergy with fast-paced and agile application development methodologies – such as DevOps – to achieve an integrated security operations program.
