AWS Public Sector customers continue to labor over demonstrating their alignment with security, compliance and audit assertions in AWS customer environments. Additionally, the majority of current technology governance processes relies predominantly on administrative and operational security controls with limited technology enforcement.

This workshop is designed to teach AWS Security Consultants, Practitioners and Managed Security Service Providers (MSSP) how to secure and manage regulated customer workloads in AWS. This class will focus on the security of an AWS customer account design (e.g. AWS CIS Foundation Benchmark), security architecture (e.g. AWS CIS 3-Tier Web Benchmark) and security automation leading practices. This workshop is an intermediate to advanced workshop with an emphasis on designing security automation for regulated workloads in AWS (e.g. FedRAMP, PCI, DoD, CJIS, HIPAA, DFARs (800-171), FERPA and others).

The result will enable Consultants, Practitioners and MSSPs to securely design, architect and implement security automation in an AWS customer account. It will also enable attendees to document their security governance/audit readiness through integration of AWS Security Partners from our Public Sector Partner Program, AWS Marketplace and Security Competency Partners and Solutions
