As a cybersecurity industry analyst, I am admittedly guilty of being myopic in looking for security to be the leading act in the keynote at major industry events. Such was the case at AWS re:Invents of the past when security was front and center starting with a discussion about the shared responsibility security model, the foundation of any cloud security program. That started to change in the last few years with security playing more of a supporting role in Andy Jassy's and Werner Vogels' keynotes. To be clear - it’s not that AWS is now being dismissive of security by any stretch, it’s simply that security is no longer an impediment to the adoption of public cloud platforms, at least those operated and secured by major CPS such as AWS, who has always treated security as job #1. AWS no longer needs to convince the market the cloud is secure, the conversation is now about how to meet your part of the shared responsibility model.
