 Our Review

AWS – needless for me to say – is a gigantic force on the Internet; and the inherent security is clearly extremely important. This conference (event) would be ideal for those that are working within the Amazon ecosystem and need to firm up their security postures.

Conference Event Summary

The following description was either submitted by the Conference Organizer on Saturday, March 13th 2021, or created by us.

AWS GameDay is an interactive team-based learning exercise designed to give WiCyS members a chance to put their AWS skills to the test in a real-world, gamified, risk-free environment. Most importantly, it is an extremely fun way to learn collaboratively. We step outside the boundaries of typical workshops through open-endedness and ambiguity. All WiCyS members and experience levels are welcome to participate!

WiCyS member players are broken up into teams of three and given a starting architecture that they will then need to evolve throughout the day in response to internal and external events. There is no one right answer; the path that GameDay participants take is up to them, based on the AWS resources at their disposal in pre-packaged AWS accounts. This is a completely hands-on opportunity to learn about AWS best practices, new AWS services, and AWS architecture patterns.

Acceptance is on a first-come, first-serve basis and is limited to the first 300 applicants.

Upon acceptance, you’ll be invited to the Introduction to AWS Security GameDay kickoff webinar on April 6

Registration deadline: March 31 (or until registration is full) Noon CT
