Going “Cloud First” Helps Hub Intl Grow the Business w/ Splunk on AWS

What does “Cloud First” really mean for your processes, customers, and the future of your business? In this session, learn from Hub International’s CISO and Head of Architecture how the insurance company is transforming their business by migrating to the cloud for greater scale, cost savings, performance, and security. With a goal to go all-in on AWS by end of 2018, Hub International needed real-time visibility across its cloud and hybrid environments to mitigate risks and ensure seamless migrations—thereby keeping customers happy and their data safe. See how Hub International is harnessing machine data and predictive analytics to secure applications and infrastructure, control costs and improve capacity planning. This session is brought to you by AWS partner, Splunk.

Active-Active: Practical Strategies for Distributed Systems

Software engineers have a responsibility to build systems capable of surviving unreliable and unpredictable environments. That’s why distributed, multi-regional systems are increasingly requested by enterprise and SMB customers alike. In this session, Beau Christensen, Senior Engineering Manager at Splunk, discusses how to move systems and applications into a globally distributed deployment posture, and eventually into a multi-master active-active state. We cover key strategies for identifying seams in your application, including use of chaos engineering to encourage responsible design choices and the selection of cloud infrastructure instead of self-built colocation. This presentation is brought to you by AWS partner, VictorOps.

How Snap Accomplishes Centralized Security and Configuration Governance on AWS

In order to maintain security hygiene of infrastructure that serves millions, security engineers need a robust framework that’s automated, extensible, and scalable. In this session, we share our AWS adoption journey: how we thought about infrastructure security, challenges faced, and how those affected decisions. Our automated framework onboards new accounts to record resource configurations and changes. Configuration changes are run through custom AWS Config rules to identify violations or deviations from benchmarks, which are corrected immediately. Learn how our centrally managed serverless framework leverages native AWS services (AWS Config, AWS CloudTrail, Amazon CloudWatch, AWS Trusted Advisor) to audit accounts against industry-standard CIS benchmarks. Sample code and live demos showcase how quickly new rules can be coded and deployed, with results immediately viewable through a central Splunk dashboard.
