Title: AWS Security Reference Architecture: A Well-Structured Foundation
Summary: The AWS Security Reference Architecture (AWS SRA) is a holistic set of guidelines for deploying the full complement of AWS security services in a multi-account environment. It can be relied upon to help design, implement, and manage AWS security services so that they align with industry accepted practices. The recommendations are built around a single-page architecture that includes AWS security services. In this session, learn about the AWS SRA and how you and your team’s might rely on the AWS SRA to design and secure your cloud hosted workloads. Also learn how they help achieve security objectives, where they can be best deployed and managed in your AWS accounts, and how they interact with other security services.
