Welcome to the first AWS Milwaukee meetup of 2020. Northwestern Mutual will be hosting for us this time in their Cream City Labs. This a great opportunity to see how Northwestern Mutual is working to make Milwaukee a hotspot for technology and innovation. Thanks to Northwestern Mutual for continuing to enable the community to learn more about AWS and their continued partnership with our group.
I'm sure everyone was able to take some time over the holidays to research all the great new announcements from Re:Invent... If you took that time with your families to enjoy the holidays and unwind from a busy year, you can join us for a Re:Invent Review with Matt Newell from Stelligent.
Northwestern Mutual's Lead Cloud Engineer, Derek Higgins, will also be presenting some of the innovative methods they use to secure the hundreds of AWS accounts that his team supports. He will cover high level Cloud Security concerns and preventative, detective and reactive automated controls. Security is table stakes when it comes to Cloud based services. Learn from some of the best and get off on the right foot.
This location is to the west of the main Tower and Commons of Northwestern Mutual. The entrance is on the west side of Van Buren under the skywalk. There will be a rotating door and security desk. Please RSVP early to be sure you are pre-checked in with the security desk. This will prevent a manual check in at the desk.
There is parking all around this area. There is a pay lot less then a block away. Parking: 617 E Wisconsin Ave Parking
