AWS re:Inforce 2022 starts tomorrow — Tuesday, July 26th — and we couldn't be more excited to gather with the tech, cloud, and security communities in our home city of Boston. Here's a sneak peek of the highlights to come at re:Inforce and what we're looking forward to the most this Tuesday and Wednesday.

Expert insights at the Rapid7 booth

After two and half years of limited in-person gatherings, we have kind of a lot to say. That's why we're making the Rapid7 booth at AWS re:Inforce a hub for learning and sharing from our cybersecurity experts. Stop by and learn how our team members are tackling a range of topics in cloud and security overall, including:

  • Adapting Your VM Program for Cloud-Native Environments — Jimmy Green, VP of Software Engineering for Cloud, will walk through some of the key considerations when building a fully cloud-first approach to vulnerability management.
  • Speeding Up Your Adoption of CSP Innovation — Chris DeRamus, VP of Technology - Cloud, will detail how Rapid7 evaluates cloud service providers (CSPs) for risk in order to promote faster, more secure adoption.
  • Context Is King: The Future of Cloud Security Operations — Peter Scott, VP of Strategic Engagement for Cloud Security, will discuss why obtaining context around security data is key to managing complexity in cloud environments.
  • Hybrid Is Here: Is Your SOC Ready? — Megan Connolly, Senior Security Solutions Engineer, will highlight the role that extended detection and response (XDR) technology can play in helping SOCs move toward a cloud-first model.
  • InsightCloudSec Demo — Joe Brumbley, Cloud Security Solutions Engineer, and Sean Healy, Senior Domain Engineer - Enterprise Cloud Security, will show InsightCloudSec in action, taking you through the different use cases and features that enable integrated security for multi-cloud environments.

Sharing how we walk the walk

At Rapid7, we're laser-focused on helping companies accelerate in the cloud without compromising security. Our technology and expertise help security teams bring that vision to life — and they form the foundation for how we secure our own cloud infrastructure, too.

In the AWS re:Inforce featured session, "Walking the Walk: AWS Security at Rapid7," Ulrich Dangle (Director, Software Engineering - Platform) and Lauren Clausen Fenton (Manager, Software Engineering - Platform) will share their firsthand experiences developing, scaling, and operationalizing a cloud security program at Rapid7. They'll talk about how they manage to reduce risk while supporting Rapid7's business goals, as well as the needs of our fast-moving DevOps team.

Join us on Tuesday, July 26th, at 11:40 AM, or Wednesday, July 27th, at 10:05 AM to learn how our security team is working around-the-clock to keep our large cloud environment secure and compliant, with standardized configurations and a tried-and-true threat response playbook.

Conversations over cloudy beers

It's no secret that great craft beer is an integral part of tech culture — so where better to talk about all things cloud than a Boston brewery known for the cloudy appearance of its hazy New England IPAs?

On Tuesday, July 26th, from 5:15 PM to 8 PM, we'll be at Rapid7 Reception at Trillium Fort Point, right in the heart of the Seaport District. It's a perfect chance to network with your fellow protectors and meet some of our Rapid7 security experts over a double dry-hopped pale ale or a nitro milk stout. (If beer's not your thing, not to worry — we'll have wine and seltzer, too.)

If that wasn't enough...

Last but not least, we're giving away a vacation of your choice valued at $5,000! The more you engage with us at re:Inforce, the more chances you have to win. You'll be entered in the drawing when you stop by to see us at Booth 206 to receive a demo or watch a presentation, or when you attend the Rapid7 Reception at Trillium Fort Point.
