Flexible use of encryption to secure data access in Amazon EBS

Amazon EBS supports a broad range of applications, including relational and nonrelational databases, containerized applications, and big data analytics engines. One of the most powerful mechanisms to secure your data against unauthorized access is encryption.

Join this session to learn the best practices of EBS encryption for data at rest, in transit, and in volume backups. We will showcase how to easily enforce encryption using the account-level encryption-by-default feature and choose the right encryption key type based on your workload. You’ll learn about a proactive defense-in-depth approach by adding an independent layer of protection with Recycle Bin to further protect accidental deletion of critical EBS resources.
