Cloud INsecurity Summit:

Avoiding the Top 10 Mistakes in Designing AWS Infrastructure and Applications


Summit Chair: Ben Hagen
CPEs: 8

Cloud-based services are becoming increasingly more attractive to organizations as they offer cost savings, flexibility, and increased operational efficiency. However, protecting systems, applications, and data in the cloud presents a new set of challenges for organizations to overcome. If done well, security in the cloud can represent an environment that is, in a very practical sense, more secure than its counterpart in a physical data center. If done poorly, the risks associated with this approach can often outweigh the benefits.

This Summit will bring together a unique combination of real-world user experiences and case studies, and practical, technical training oriented on specific approaches and skills for building a secure AWS-based environment… all in a single-day format.

Sessions will feature practitioners providing examples and case studies from their real-world experience of building out and scaling secure architectures at a diverse set of organizations.
