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.

Every enterprise knows by now that it can save money by simply lifting and shifting workloads to the cloud, but many are missing the larger opportunity to also make money by moving. While quick costs savings are good for the bottom line, they do little to move the top line numbers. To achieve both savings and earnings, corporate thinking about technologies must change in order to enable faster processes leveraged enterprise-wide.
In this AWS re:Invent 2016 breakout session we explored multiple customer success stories where the customers have evolved from leveraging basic compute and storage products (EC2 and S3) to integrating new services into operations by leveraging Lambda, DynamoDB, CodeDeploy, etc. Once this is achieved, enterprises are enabled to manage and deploy code rapidly in a programmatic and elastic secure network, ensuring governance and security standards across the globe. We also looked at the migration process trusted by hundreds of clients as well as how to cope with the process and people components that are so important to enable agility, while focusing heavily on the technology.
Dive deep into the technology that allows the world’s largest beverage manufacturer to manage hundreds of AWS Accounts, hundreds of workloads, thousands of instances, and hundreds of business partners around the globe. The company’s Configuration Management System has Puppet at the core and relies on over a dozen core and emerging AWS products across accounts, availability zones and regions. This complex and globally-available system ensures all of company’s workloads in AWS meet corporate policies but also allows for rapid scale of both consumer and enterprise workloads.
