AWS re:Invent 2015 | (SEC402) Enterprise Cloud Security via DevSecOps 2.0


AWS re:Invent 2015 | (SEC402) Enterprise Cloud Security via DevSecOps 2.0

Running enterprise workloads with sensitive data in AWS is hard and requires an in-depth understanding about software-defined security risks. At re:Invent 2014, Intuit and AWS presented “Enterprise Cloud Security via DevSecOps” to help the community understand how to embrace AWS features and a software-defined security model. Since then, we’ve learned quite a bit more about running sensitive workloads in AWS.

We’ve evaluated new security features, worked with vendors, and generally explored how to develop security-as-code skills. Come join Intuit and AWS to learn about second-year lessons and see how DevSecOps is evolving. We’ve built skills in security engineering, compliance operations, security science, and security operations to secure AWS-hosted applications. We will share stories and insights about DevSecOps experiments, and show you how to crawl, walk, and then run into the world of DevSecOps.

    I created this video to warn everyone that they need to install the Windows Updates immediately to prevent this massive worm from infecting them and perpetuating the ransomware worm virus. Please take this video seriously and share it with as many people as possible. If we can get computers proactively patched this virus will start to die off. Otherwise, we’re all gonna be in a lot of trouble.

    A Password Keeper May Simplify Your Work


    Most computer users are required to enter passwords before they can perform some functions. The purpose of passwords is to provide a means of authenticating that a user is who they claim to be. This can be a fairly effective and secure control, but it does force users to recall and type their passwords, sometimes fairly frequently. The use of a password keeper can streamline this process quite a bit.

    Passwords are inherently meaningless sequences of letters and numbers that should only be known to their users. It should be difficult for others to guess them or otherwise determine what they are. Unfortunately, when they are difficult to guess, they can also be hard to remember. In desperation, users have been known to write them down. Security managers have nightmares about pieces of paper with lists of passwords being stuck on the edge of computer monitors.

    Another name for password keeper is password manager. This kind of program maintains a repository of passwords for use when needed. It can be a web browser capability, or a extension to the browser. It captures passwords on when they are established. New passwords go to the repository, which should provide secure and safe storage. Passwords are automatically fetched on demand and passed off to the page or application that needs them.

    So, how good are these programs? Are they safe to use? They are obviously better than notes stuck on the monitor. Are they better than memorizing? Analyzing them in terms of the main risks associated with passwords should help to answer this question.

    There is a risk that passwords may become compromised, i. E., known to an unauthorized person. This can lead to unauthorized use of protected resources. If the software can be trusted, and the passwords are stored in encrypted form, then the risk is fairly low. If they are not encrypted, and the system is not physically secure, then this risk becomes a serious concern.

    Suppose a password is lost. This can be a major impediment, depending on the recovery procedures available. People forget memorized passwords, and sticky notes can disappear, so this is not a new risk. It is important to ensure that any storage for passwords be backed up, whether they are stored locally or at a remote site.

    Is a password keeper a good thing to use? That can depend on how one works with the computer and its applications. As long as the risks are appropriately managed, it can make it easier to deal with computer related work.

    Find out the benefits and advantages of having an effective and efficient password keeper in hand when you need it! When you are looking for a way to keep your passwords safe, you can find it when you get a free password manager download today!
