Alex Casalboni: Architecting for Sustainability on AWS
How can cloud architects and developers accelerate the sustainability of cloud workloads through optimization and informed architectural decisions? In this session, we dive into the techniques, best practices, software design, and AWS service considerations recommended by the AWS Well-Architected Framework (Sustainability Pillar).
Alex co-organizes the serverless meetup in Milan, as well as ServerlessDays Milan (previously JeffConf).
As a Principal Developer Advocate at AWS, Alex often speaks at technical conferences across the world, supports developer communities and helps them build applications in the cloud. He is particularly interested in serverless architectures, machine learning, and data analytics.
In his free time, Alex loves snowboarding, jogging, traveling, and playing his saxophone.

It contains all CIS controls and many more additional checks that help on GDPR, HIPAA and other security frameworks. Combined with AWS CDK it is easily deployable, extendable, and maintainable.
In his talk, Martin will show you the best practices with Prowler.
