TITLE: Securing Deployment on Amazon Web Services


 PRESENTATION ABSTRACT: AWS in 2014 encompasses a much more sophisticated suite of products and services than the early EC2 compute & S3 file storage. Current generation infrastructure offers a myriad of options for fine-grained security, encryption, access control and authentication. This briefing provides recommended current practices for optimal security, performance and governance for sensitive-data workloads on AWS. Information will be provided for reference architectures, compliance matrices and Amazon senior engineering resources.

TITLE:  The Growing DDoS Threat

PRESENTATION ABSTRACT: In recent years, distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks have increased dramatically in frequency, size and complexity.  While organizations have existing strategies in place that address a range of security threats, they are not sufficient to combat the new breeds of DDoS attacks that leverage large distributed "botnet" networks of compromised "zombie" machines to simultaneously launch attacks using compliant protocols.  In this session we will discuss the current DDoS landscape, recent events, types of attacks and mitigation techniques.
