AWS re:Invent 2015 | (SEC314-R) New! AWS Config Rules: Improve Governance Over Configuration Changes

Published on Oct 19, 2015

AWS Config enables you to discover what resources are used on AWS, understand how resources are configured and gives you unprecedented visibility into changes to configurations over time – all without disrupting end user productivity. With Config Rules, you can continuously evaluate whether changes to resources are compliant with policies. You can set up predefined rules, provided and managed by AWS, or author your own rules using Amazon Lambda, and these rules are evaluated whenever relevant resources are modified. You can use this visibility and control to assess and improve your security and compliance posture. We will dive deep into other new capabilities in AWS Config and cover how you can integrate with IT service management, configuration management, and other tools. In this session, we will look at: AWS Config Rules – how to create and use rules that govern configuration changes recorded by AWS Config. New capabilities in AWS Config – Usability changes, better controls and other enhancements Mechanisms to aggregate deep visibility across AWS to gain insights into your overall security and operational posture. This session is best suited for administrators, security-ops and developers with a focus on audit, security and compliance.
