Cybersecurity at AWS re:Invent

Is your business at risk of a cyber attack? Let’s start with an honest, “Yes.” We all experience a constant supply of cyber crime news stories and most of the time it’s the large organizations or global enterprises that dominate the headlines. This could incorrectly lead to people to believe that small businesses in industries with smaller numbers of customers who hold limited sensitive data are at lower risk of cyber attack. However, gone are the days of “It will never happen to us.” In our 2018 cybersecurity report “Critical Watch Report: The State of Threat Detection”, Alert Logic threat researchers found that industry and size are no longer reliable predictors of threat risk.

That just shows, that regardless of the size of your business or the industry you work in, cyber criminals who want to access your network will take advantage of any vulnerable attack surface. A single unprotected or improperly secured device can be all they need to access your entire infrastructure. With the risk of a cyber attacks increasing, it is vital that organizations are protected and prepared for any kind of attack. If we accept that cybersecurity has become strategic, senior executives must continue to invest in understanding what is actually at risk, regardless of where their infrastructure resides, or their organization size.

This is why we’re going to AWS re:Invent. As an AWS Advanced Technology Partner, we offer a new approach to help you get the right level of security and compliance coverage, holistically across any environment.

Security Jam at re:Invent

We’ve always had a lot to talk about at AWS re:Invent, but this year we are even more excited as we are a main sponsor of the Security Jam.  We have some challenging scenarios built out that will put your security skills and tools to the test and help you learn new skills as we deliver a set of simulated security incidents.
