AWS Security Checklist & Best Practices

aws_logo_smile_1200x630

You use AWS. It’s secure out of the box, but introducing security issues through misconfiguration is easy…

I found a checklist and I also added the best practices from AWS, this helps me in my daily work to guide me through potential security issues. This can and will help you to tighten up the security of your AWS infrastructure.

The purpose of this article is to remind you of the most urgent security measures that should be taken on your AWS infrastructure. It is by no means exhaustive, and it should be adapted to your specific business use cases.

Happy Holidays

blog seasons greetings 2017

2017 for me was quite a roller coaster, privately I had quite a few setbacks and this makes you realize that the people around you are very dear to you and you are just a man of the day. It has strengthened my intention to enjoy each other more and make real time for this.

Businesslike, it was also an eventful year, after I had opted for a new adventure at a start-up this soon turned out to be no fit and things looked different from what I had been told. Then quickly entered a nice new challenge at Cegeka and I like it so far. Great projects and pleasant colleagues to work with. There is a lot on the agenda in 2018 with many nice challenges that I am really looking forward to!

Personal highlights for me was being asked to participate in the NetApp VTAB and Cloud Architect Alliance, as well as receiving the vExpert Cloud award. I am honored and grateful.

I want to thank everyone who supported me and played a part in my turbulent year. Special thanks to the community of vExpert, NetApp, NTC, Citrix and Cloud Architect Alliance.

I wish everyone a merry Christmass ad a healthy and fantastic 2018!

Celebrate and enjoy this time together with you family and friends. I am looking forward to 2018 for a successful year full of solutions, happiness and success!

Warm regards.

Peter van de Bree

 

 

Mijn eerste weken bij Cegeka

digital-transformation

De tijd vliegt: het is alweer enkele weken geleden dat mijn Cegeka-avontuur van start ging. In deze blog wil ik die beginperiode graag schetsen.

Eerlijk? Voordat ik door recruiter Kasper Zandvliet benaderd werd – een eerdere blog over onze eerste kennismaking en ervaring lees je hier – was Cegeka een vrij grote onbekende voor mij. Nu liggen de kaarten anders, ik heb Cegeka uiteraard al veel beter leren kennen. Onderstaande infographic schept wat meer duidelijkheid in het bredere Cegeka-plaatje. Een plaatje dat me positief verraste toen ik het te zien kreeg.
