Securing your AWS Cloud environment from ransomware eBook

Data is your organization’s best strategic asset, which is why safeguarding it against cyber threats like ransomware attacks, natural disasters, and emergencies is a top priority. Legacy data storage, such as tape, makes sharing and protecting data costly and time consuming—but there’s a better way with AWS.

It’s time to improve data protection in the AWS Cloud and bolster IT resilience with secure backups, active archiving, and cloud-based disaster recovery that lowers costs, and strengthens your security posture.

Whiteboard videos

Preventing Ransomware Using AWS

A video discussion on why ransomware attacks continue to take place and how public sector organizations can protect systems and data. Using AWS, organizations can architect workloads into isolated VPCs and segment replication and backup into disparate regions to prevent the spread of ransomware.

(4:17)

AWS Best Practices for Defending Against Ransomware Threats

For public sector entities to protect themselves against ransomware threats, AWS services can scale and simplify how organizations secure their assets and recover, if needed. Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) provides durable and secure storage for point-in-time snapshots; and AWS Backup reliably automates and orchestrates those snapshots.

(4:09)

Improving Your Disaster Response and Recovery with AWS

How can AWS disaster recovery solutions help public sector entities better prepare against natural disasters such as hurricanes, volcanoes, and wildfires. The discussion covers how CloudEndure helps organizations with disaster preparedness and guard against technical or manual failures.

(5:01)

Extracting Value from Data Backups and Archives

A discussion on how AWS storage services can facilitate aggregation of secondary data for analytics and decision making. Many view backed up and archived data–often referred to as secondary data-- as passive data. The video highlights how organizations can use secondary data for analytics and decision making using services Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3), Amazon S3 Glacier, and AWS Backup along with data lakes to run analytics.

Building Security and Resilience in a Microservices Architecture

Compliance and security of student and patient data are paramount to education and healthcare organizations. The video discussion with Infinitive covers how a decoupled application built using a microservices architecture allows layering in security upfront. The architecture secures data that is contained within a microservices component by only sharing it with other applications and microservices using the principle of least privilege.
