In cloud migrations, the elastic nature of the cloud is often touted as a critical capability in delivering on a business’ key initiatives. However, if not accounted for in your Security and Compliance plans, you could be facing some real challenges. Always counting on a virtual host to be running, for example, will cause issues when that host is rebooted or retired. This is why managing Security and Compliance in the cloud is a continuous action requiring both forethought and automation.
At AWS re:Invent 2017, 2nd Watch hosted a breakout session titled “Continuous Compliance on AWS at Scale” where attendees learned how a leading, next generation, Managed Cloud Provider uses automation and cloud expertise to successfully manage Security and Compliance at scale in an ever-changing environment. This journey starts with account creation, goes through deployment of infrastructure and code and never ends.
Through code examples and live demos, presenters Peter Meister and Lars Cromley demonstrated the tools and automation you can use to provide continuous compliance of your cloud infrastructure from inception to ongoing management. In case you missed the session or simply wish to get a refresher on the content that was presented, you can now view the breakout session recording below.
