In AWS, we have the ability to produce highly available, fault-tolerant applications at scale using different methods of automation. Security engineering should be no different. There has been recent emphasis, along with newer services released, that allow us to automate configurations and incident response in the same highly available, fault-tolerant manner as applications are designed. News stories about cloud security have taught all of us one important concept– humans make mistakes. Security automation can help to significantly decrease risk and vulnerability.
Join us on Wednesday, June 27th at 10:30AM CST for our live webinar on AWS Security, where the Linux Academy AWS team (myself, Tom Haslett, and Mark Richman) will be discussing some of the newer trends of security in AWS. We’ll walk you through hands-on configurations of some of these automation concepts that involve services such as AWS Config, CloudWatch Events, CloudTrail, and Lambda.
Topics that will be covered:
- Trends in AWS security
- Security Automation
- Incident Response
- Logging and Monitoring
I hope you’ll join us as we secure the cloud! (If you can’t make it, don’t worry, we’ll email you the video once it’s available)
