What people are talking about at AWS re:Inforce 2021

AWS re:Inforce 2021 — the virtual security, identify, and compliance conference from AWS — is underway today. (And totally free to attend/watch.)

Due to COVID-19 concerns, the event made the switch from two days of in-person learning in Houston to a single day of online-only activity. On the positive side, it means the event is free . . . and you don’t have to travel to Houston. (Kidding!)

To capture a sense of the chit-chat and scuttlebutt that would accompany an in-person event, here are a few highlights from the Twitter-verse during this morning’s keynote session. Conversations included talk of the state of cloud security (and security professionals’ mental health), the newly announced AWS Backup Audit Manager, and plenty of nuggets of cloud security wisdom.

Scroll away! It’s just like being at a conference. (But without the bland catering and the awkward moment when you have to sneak a glance at the badge of the friendly person who somehow remembers you, what you do, and your cat’s name after a brief chat at the conference last year.)

re:Inforce leadership sessions will continue throughout the day, including talks on threat detection & incident response and identity & access management. View the agenda here.
