    Hi Mikhail,

       I see you presented this before - can you please link to the slides or video?

    Also, this is an experience report, please update the submission.  As it is an experience report, I tend to prefer those at 20 minutes.  Would you be open to that and, if so, what would change?  Would the learning outcomes still work?

      Hi Joel,

      Have added the slides and updated the submission type. Have kept the duration to 45 minutes for now. Reducing it to 20 minutes would force me to skip some depth. Please advise. There are some slides that have title only. These slides are where I rely more on talking rather than content.

    Mikhail Advani / Rajesh Tamhane - DevOpSec: Rapid Security in the Cloud with AWS and CIS

    20 Mins

    High performance teams are releasing software to production several times a day. This poses a challenge to Ops and infosec who need to have the confidence that  these releases will not lead to a security breach in the infrastructure. DevOpSec or DevSecOps is a discipline where development, operations and  security work collaboratively to achieve security  compliance in agile teams. In this demonstration of our open source project, we show how we used DevOps and security best practices to achieve and test AWS infrastructure.

    Case Study

    With the advent of the cloud era and the multitude of cloud vendors, we wish to demonstrate a case study of a sample application hosted on two of the leading providers, Amazon and Google, and present our observations on various factors like cost, performance, reliability etc. in an attempt to guide the audience in making a decision in selecting their cloud service provider for their application.
