Introduction to AWS Security for FSI
Virtual Platform
|
Masterclass

Description:

Financial Services executives are facing pressures to lower IT costs, innovate quickly, and utilise new technologies to design for the future. These pressures are why Financial Services executives are no longer asking "if" they will move to the cloud, but "how" to meet their regulatory obligations when moving to the cloud. Most jurisdictions that regulate Financial Services do not prohibit the use of cloud services, but require a higher level of due diligence from customers who are using third-party service providers, one that is commensurate with the level of associated risk. In this session, we introduce the AWS Shared Responsibility Model along with key security services that allow you to build security controls that are aligned to the NIST Cybersecurity Framework categories: identify, protect, detect, respond, and recover. We will also discuss five common principles related to Financial Services regulation that customers should consider when using AWS cloud services and specifically, applying the shared responsibility model to their regulatory requirements.
