Expedite pursuit of compliance authorisations

3:00-3:30pm 16/09/20


Hear about the Authority to Operate on AWS program, which provides resources to solution providers running on AWS who need help with their pursuit of a compliance authorisation. The ATO on AWS program reduces the time and cost associated with achieving compliance certifications and authorisations while enabling you to continuously develop, integrate and monitor a solution throughout its life cycle.

Securing supply chains to build resilience

12:30-1:10pm 17/09/20


This workshop is aimed at startups and SMEs looking to secure supply chains or make sure that they’re not the weak link in a larger organisation’s supply chain.

Scott McKinnon, security architect at VMWare, and Russell Gundry, director of innovation programmes at Plexal, will explore the increasing importance of securing information throughout the supply chain. We’ll look at innovative solutions on the market and explain the approach that VMware takes to address the challenge.

The aim of the session is to encourage startups and suppliers to think through this critical challenge before it becomes a barrier to sales and adoption.
