AWS re:Inforce is a security learning conference where you can gain skills and confidence in cloud security, compliance, identity, and privacy. As a re:Inforce attendee, you have access to hundreds of technical and non-technical sessions, an Expo featuring AWS experts and security partners with AWS Security Competencies, and keynote and leadership sessions featuring Security leadership. AWS re:Inforce 2023 will take place in-person in Anaheim, CA, on June 13 and 14.
In line with recent updates to the Security Pillar of the Well-Architected Framework, we added a new track to the conference on application security. The new track will help you discover how AWS, customers, and AWS Partners move fast while understanding the security of the software they build.
In these sessions, you’ll hear directly from AWS leaders and get hands-on with the tools that help you ship securely. You’ll hear how organization and culture help security accelerate your business, and you’ll dive deep into the technology that helps you more swiftly get features to customers. You might even find some new tools that make it simpler to empower your builders to move quickly and ship securely.
To learn about sessions from across the content tracks, see the AWS re:Inforce catalog preview.
Breakout sessions, chalk talks, and lightning talks
APS221: From code to insight: Amazon Inspector & AWS Lambda in action
In this lightning talk, see a demo of Amazon Inspector support for AWS Lambda. Inspect a Java application running on Lambda for security vulnerabilities using Amazon Inspector for an automated and continual vulnerability assessment. In addition, explore how Amazon Inspector can help you identify package and code vulnerabilities in your serverless applications.
APS302: From IDE to code review, increasing quality and security
Attend this session to discover how to improve the quality and security of your code early in the development cycle. Explore how you can integrate Amazon Code Whisperer, Amazon CodeGuru reviewer, and Amazon Inspector into your development workflow, which can help you identify potential issues and automate your code review process.
APS201: How AWS and MongoDB raise the security bar with distributed ownership
In this session, explore how AWS and MongoDB have approached creating their Security Guardians and Security Champions programs. Learn practical advice on scoping, piloting, measuring, scaling, and managing a program with the goal of accelerating development with a high security bar, and discover tips on how to bridge the gap between your security and development teams. Learn how a guardians or champions program can improve security outside of your dev teams for your company as a whole when applied broadly across your organization.
APS202: AppSec tooling & culture tips from AWS & Toyota Motor North America
In this session, AWS and Toyota Motor North America (TMNA) share how they scale AppSec tooling and culture across enterprise organizations. Discover practical advice and lessons learned from the AWS approach to threat modeling across hundreds of service teams. In addition, gain insight on how TMNA has embedded security engineers into business units working on everything from mainframes to serverless. Learn ways to support teams at varying levels of maturity, the importance of differentiating between risks and vulnerabilities, and how to balance the use of cloud-native, third-party, and open-source tools at scale.
APS331: Shift security left with the AWS integrated builder experience
As organizations start building their applications on AWS, they use a wide range of highly capable builder services that address specific parts of the development and management of these applications. The AWS integrated builder experience (IBEX) brings those separate pieces together to create innovative solutions for both customers and AWS Partners building on AWS. In this chalk talk, discover how you can use IBEX to shift security left by designing applications with security best practices built in and by unlocking agile software to help prevent security issues and bottlenecks.
Hands-on sessions (builders’ sessions and workshops)
APS271: Threat modeling for builders
Attend this facilitated workshop to get hands-on experience creating a threat model for a workload. Learn some of the background and reasoning behind threat modeling, and explore tools and techniques for modeling systems, identifying threats, and selecting mitigations. In addition, explore the process for creating a system model and corresponding threat model for a serverless workload. Learn how AWS performs threat modeling internally, and discover the principles to effectively perform threat modeling on your own workloads.
APS371: Integrating open-source security tools with the AWS code services
AWS, open-source, and partner tooling works together to accelerate your software development lifecycle. In this workshop, learn how to use Automated Security Helper (ASH), a source-application security tool, to quickly integrate various security testing tools into your software build and deployment flows. AWS experts guide you through the process of security testing locally on your machines and within the AWS CodeCommit, AWS CodeBuild, and AWS CodePipeline services. In addition, discover how to identify potential security issues in your applications through static analysis, software composition analysis, and infrastructure-as-code testing.
APS352: Practical shift left for builders
Providing early feedback in the development lifecycle maximizes developer productivity and enables engineering teams to deliver quality products. In this builders’ session, learn how to use AWS Developer Tools to empower developers to make good security decisions early in the development cycle. Tools such as Amazon CodeGuru, Amazon CodeWhisperer, and Amazon DevOps Guru can provide continuous real-time feedback upon each code commit into a source repository and supplement this with ML capabilities integrated into the code review stage.
APS351: Secure software factory on AWS through the DoD DevSecOps lens
Modern information systems within regulated environments are driven by the need to develop software with security at the forefront. Increasingly, organizations are adopting DevSecOps and secure software factory patterns to improve the security of their software delivery lifecycle. In this builder’s session, we will explore the options available on AWS to create a secure software factory aligned with the DoD Enterprise DevSecOps initiative. We will focus on the security of the software supply chain as we deploy code from source to an Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (EKS) environment.
