Design principles to Strengthen Security of your AWS Cloud Workload by Rohini Gaonkar

The AWS Well-Architected Framework describes the key concepts, design principles, and architectural best practices for designing and running secure, high-performing, resilient, and efficient workloads in the cloud. It provides a way for you to consistently measure your workload against best practices and identify areas for improvement. We believe that having well-architected workloads greatly increases the likelihood of business success. The framework is based on 5 pillars – Operational Excellence, Security, Reliability, Performance Efficiency, Cost Optimization.

This session focuses on the security pillar, that describes how to take advantage of cloud technologies to protect data, systems, and assets in a way that can improve your security posture. Join this session to learn how the security design principles and best practices can help you strengthen your cloud workload security. You can use this session as a checklist for security recommendations while building applications on AWS cloud. It’s intended for those in technology roles, such as CTOs, CSOs, CISOs, architects, developers, and operations team members.
