I’d like to personally invite you to attend the Amazon Web Services (AWS) security conference, AWS re:Inforce 2023, in Anaheim, CA on June 13–14, 2023. You’ll have access to interactive educational content to address your security, compliance, privacy, and identity management needs. Join security experts, peers, leaders, and partners from around the world who are committed to the highest security standards, and learn how your business can stay ahead in the rapidly evolving security landscape.
As Chief Information Security Officer of AWS, my primary job is to help you navigate your security journey while keeping the AWS environment secure. AWS re:Inforce offers an opportunity for you to dive deep into how to use security to drive adaptability and speed for your business. With headlines currently focused on the macroeconomy and broader technology topics such as the intersection between AI and security, this is your chance to learn the tactical and strategic lessons that will help you develop a security culture that facilitates business innovation.
Here are a few reasons I’m especially looking forward to this year’s program:
Sharing my keynote, including the latest innovations in cloud security and what AWS Security is focused on
AWS re:Inforce 2023 will kick off with my keynote on Tuesday, June 13, 2023 at 9 AM PST. I’ll be joined by Steve Schmidt, Chief Security Officer (CSO) of Amazon, and other industry-leading guest speakers. You’ll hear all about the latest innovations in cloud security from AWS and learn how you can improve the security posture of your business, from the silicon to the top of the stack. Take a look at my most recent re:Invent presentation, What we can learn from customers: Accelerating innovation at AWS Security and the latest re:Inforce keynote for examples of the type of content to expect.
Engaging sessions with real-world examples of how security is embedded into the way businesses operate
AWS re:Inforce offers an opportunity to learn how to prioritize and optimize your security investments, be more efficient, and respond faster to an evolving landscape. Using the Security pillar of the AWS Well-Architected Framework, these sessions will demonstrate how you can build practical and prescriptive measures to protect your data, systems, and assets.
Sessions are offered at all levels and all backgrounds. Depending on your interests and educational needs, AWS re:Inforce is designed to meet you where you are on your cloud security journey. There are learning opportunities in several hundred sessions across six tracks: Data Protection; Governance, Risk & Compliance; Identity & Access Management; Network & Infrastructure Security, Threat Detection & Incident Response; and, this year, Application Security—a brand-new track. In this new track, discover how AWS experts, customers, and partners move fast while maintaining the security of the software they are building. You’ll hear from AWS leaders and get hands-on experience with the tools that can help you ship quickly and securely.
Shifting security into the “department of yes”
Rather than being seen as the proverbial “department of no,” IT teams have the opportunity to make security a business differentiator, especially when they have the confidence and tools to do so. AWS re:Inforce provides unique opportunities to connect with and learn from AWS experts, customers, and partners who share insider insights that can be applied immediately in your everyday work. The conference sessions, led by AWS leaders who share best practices and trends, will include interactive workshops, chalk talks, builders’ sessions, labs, and gamified learning. This means you’ll be able to work with experts and put best practices to use right away.
Our Expo offers opportunities to connect face-to-face with AWS security solution builders who are the tip of the spear for security. You can ask questions and build solutions together. AWS Partners that participate in the Expo have achieved security competencies and are there to help you find ways to innovate and scale your business.
A full conference pass is $1,099. Register today with the code ALUMwrhtqhv to receive a limited time $300 discount, while supplies last.
I’m excited to see everyone at re:Inforce this year. Please join us for this unique event that showcases our commitment to giving you direct access to the latest security research and trends. Our teams at AWS will continue to release additional details about the event on our website, and you can get real-time updates by following @awscloud and @AWSSecurityInfo.
I look forward to seeing you in Anaheim and providing insight into how we prioritize security at AWS to help you navigate your cloud security investments.
