AWS re:Inforce 2019 – After the Show

July 2, 2019 | by Krittika Banerjee | Posted In Cloud

The inaugural AWS Cloud security conference — AWS re:Inforce — took place on June 25-26, 2019 in Boston. As an Advanced Consulting Partner, Go2Group participated in this two-day conference, jam-packed with amazing  keynotes, breakout sessions, Q&As, hands-on workshops, training and certification, and much more. Well over 8,000 attendees descended on the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center to connect with the cloud security community, deep dive into the latest approaches to security best practices and risk management utilizing AWS services, features, and tools, and most importantly, have fun.

The event culminated in a sweat-inducing Jam Lounge — AWS re:Inforce’s version of a hackathon — which gave participants complex security scenarios that they needed to solve against simulated environments. Jay Lacroix (Director of Cloud Service and Operations) and Tre King (DevSecOps Engineer) from Go2Group  participated in the hackathon and finished twelfth among 275 teams in the event!

A big THANK YOU to AWS for organizing a top-notch security conference that provided us the opportunity to learn more about ways to eliminate security blind spots and better manage cyber risk. We are high on this incredible energy and look forward to connecting again next year!
