AWS re:Invent 2017. Your Cloud Security Questions Answered: Meet Stuart Scott

Security is still one of the first questions companies have when it comes to the cloud. Ahead of re:Invent 2017, AWS has already announced new encryption and security features for its Simple Storage Service (S3) and a new service, AWS PrivateLink, for keeping traffic secure between AWS services and VPC Endpoints. Naturally, you’ll want to know how these announcements will affect your deployments and what you can do to take advantage of these and any forthcoming new AWS releases.
Cloud Academy’s AWS Security expert, Stuart Scott, will be with our team at re:Invent to answer your questions about security, privacy, and compliance in your cloud deployments. Here’s a teaser video where Stuart explains why security matters.
