CANCELED: AWS Security GameDay PDX Event

AWS Security GameDay in Portland

UPDATE: Due to current concerns regarding COVID-19, we have decided to postpone upcoming Five Talent events. We will keep you updated as to when they will be rescheduled.

From everyone here at Five Talent, stay healthy and take care of each other!

Test your skills and compete for prizes at one of AWS’s hottest workshops! Hosted by Five Talent, this team-based learning exercise is designed to help you learn AWS best practices and explore new AWS services in a fun, gamified, risk-free environment.

Don’t worry – competition is fierce, but friendly!

What to expect
As a participant, your team will follow AWS’s fictitious new startup Unicorn.Rentals and solve different security challenges involving AWS services (VPC, S3, WAF, RDS, EC2) while competing for points. Our primary focus will be on implementing security solutions to prevent common attacks including public access to private resources, malicious deletion of storage, and injection attacks. You’ll also setup and manage logging and monitoring to discover how attacks are happening.

Who should attend?
Solutions architects
Project managers
Database Administrators (DBAs)

Because GameDay is designed for operations teams and people newer to AWS, you don’t need to have coding or development experience to participate. However, seasoned developers and experienced DevOps teams will also find it a fun and challenging exercise. While the workshop focuses on debugging and operating EC2 infrastructure, teams are not limited to EC2. More advanced players are encouraged to utilize their skills to find other innovative solutions.

Date: TBD

Time: 5:00pm – 7:00pm
