AWS Security

Technically, part about 16, but these are the first published notes. No pictures, not fun stuff, but proof that I'm doing something.


Well, here's something funny;
 Gives training to employees (Unlike most companies who want the perfect person right out of the gate).

AWS Training
Security Compliance

- Risk and Compliance

- Compliance Approach
    - Shared responsibility
    - Services on secure and controlled platform w/ a wide array of security features
The Customer configures their IT infrastructure.





- Compliance Responsibilities
Shares information about risk for customers to document their framework.

Security Sharing involves getting Certs, making white papers, giving documentaion under ND and works with outside auditors.


Assurance Programs
- Certs
- Laws, regs, privacies.

Functionality offered sometimes re: Laws, regulation, privacy for compliance, also alignments and frameworks.

Risk Management

- Implement control and mitigation.
- Re-evaluated at least bianually to ID risks
- Put in measures to solve the problem!
- Also other risk assessments.

Policies based upon these:

* Cobit
* AICPA
* NIST

AWS
- Maintains policy
- Gives training to employees (Unlike most companies who want the perfect person right out of the gate).
- Perform application security reviews
    - AAA, you know this.
Scans internet facing interfaces for vulnerabilities.
Let’s people know about the problems.
Ext. vulnerability assessments performed regularly by third parties, who send the information to AWS leadership. But not a replacement for customer scans.

Customers can ask for cloud infrastructure scans.

Control Environment

- Policies, processes, control activities.
- Securely delivers AWS offerings.
- People
- Processes
- Tech
- All that supports AWS framework, and AWS gets input from leading cloud computing societies to make things work.
-
Once again, confidentiality, integrity, availability.

You should check the white papers. AWS.amazon.com/compliance.

Info Sec.

Customers have governance over IT enviroment, which sounds challenging and cool to me.

LEARN about the enviroment from different sources.
DESIGN what works.
IDENTIFY what other people can access.

Contactless Tech’s Role in the New Guest Experience ft. Intelity and The George

 Contactless hospitality technology is growing. You want to get away, and you'll be damned if a little thing like a deadly virus will stop you! But you still don't want to touch things. Ew. During the chat between INTELITY CEO Robert Stevenson and THE GEORGE Director of Operations Kerrie Hunter, you’ll learn how the historic boutique hotel has adapted a mobile-first guest experience in the wake of COVID-19—and how they see contactless technology affecting the future of hospitality. I don't remember how I found INTELITY (probably hoping to score a position with them), but I liked them enough to stay on the e-mail lists.
