Visual Guide to Configuring Top AWS Config Rules

In our experience working with hundreds of organizations on compliance projects ranging from AWS PCI compliance and AWS HIPAA compliance to internal risk management initiatives, it’s clear that achieving and maintaining compliance is a delicate balance. Too many rules can slow progress and sometimes even cause teams to avoid complying at all. And too few guidelines can obviously result in unwanted fines, or in a worst case scenario, a security vulnerability that causes the business serious harm. Central to establishing and ensuring AWS risk and compliance efforts is the well-known practice of AWS configuration management. It plays a central role in keeping systems in a known, good state and with the application of automation can help organizations strike an optimal balance.

AWS SQS FIFO Queues and RabbitMQ on AWS

High availability has become a key requirement of every layer in today’s technology stack. And, message queuing or message brokering software is no exception. In the past we’ve relied, like many of you, on RabbitMQ to create highly available message queues when FIFO (First-In, First-Out) was required. (Indeed, our RabbitMQ tutorial is one of our most-oft read blogs.) Often this is for ecommerce, financial services and other applications where it is important to strictly process messages only once and in the order they are published.
