With less than one week before AWS re:Invent 2016, now is the time to make any final adjustments to your plan for the conference. But if you find yourself a little behind and in need of a few last-minute tips, we’ve got you covered. Here are a few resources you will want to check out before arriving in Sin City:
Jeff Barr, Chief Evangelist, AWS
Besides providing up to date content on the conference itself, Jeff discusses the most recent developments in the AWS domain. He is your go to guy for “interesting, informative, and technically accurate blog posts to highlight the latest and greatest AWS offerings”.
As past re:Invent attendees will know, the conference is often whirlwind of sessions, events and activities. While it can be difficult to keep up, you can always turn to the AWS re:Invent Twitter account to get your quick updates on day-to-day news.

Lessons from a CISO: Achieving continuous compliance in elastic environments
In this session, you’ll learn why building security in from the beginning will save you time (and painful retrofits) later, how to gather and retain audit evidence for instances that are only up for minutes or hours, and how Cengage used Trend Micro™ Deep Security™ to meet many compliance requirements and ensured instances were instantly protected as they came online in a hybrid cloud architecture. Cengage Learning’s Chief Security Officer, Robert Hotaling, will share his organization’s journey to AWS, and how they enabled continuous compliance for their dynamic environment with automation.
