In this session, you learn how to adapt application defenses and operational responses based on your unique requirements. You also hear directly from customers about how they architected their applications on AWS to protect their applications. There are many ways to build secure, high-availability applications in the cloud. Services such as API Gateway, Amazon VPC, ALB, ELB, and Amazon EC2 are the basic building blocks that enable you to address a wide range of use cases. Best practices for defending your applications against Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks, exploitation attempts, and bad bots can vary with your choices in architecture.
