Great AWS-centric Security Content

I attended this conference with the anticipation that it would provide insights on the practical application of security within AWS, and not just the “AWS is awesome” security banter. I was not disappointed. Several large AWS customers presented and were not shy in exposing the areas AWS is weak in, or requires significant effort on the part of the customer to attain/maintain a secure profile within AWS. I will definitely be attending in 2020.
