AWS re:Invent 2016: Architecting Security and Governance Across a Multi-Account Strategy (SAC319)


Whether it is per business unit or per application, many AWS customers use multiple accounts to meet their infrastructure isolation and billing requirements. In this session, we discuss considerations, limitations, and security patterns when building out a multi-account strategy. We explore topics such as identity federation, cross-account roles, consolidated logging, and account governance. Thomson Reuters also presents their approach to a multi-account strategy.

At the end of the session, we present an enterprise-ready, multi-account architecture that you can start leveraging today. We encourage you to attend “Deep Dive: Implementing Security and Governance Across a Multi-Account Strategy” for a deeper dive into the tools and implementation of this strategy.
