Compliance-as-code is the concept of automating the evaluation of recorded configurations against desired configurations, from a security and well-architected perspective. Building Serverless Compliance-as-Code is a full-day, advanced-level bootcamp designed to teach you how to use, read, and write compliance-as-code to keep an AWS environment secure and optimized.

Following hands-on practice, the day will conclude with a tournament. The goal is to build innovative compliance-as-code to be made available to millions of AWS customers on the AWS public Github.


This bootcamp teaches you how to:

  • Apply out-of-the-box rules to an AWS environment
  • Gain visibility on the current state of an environment, and remediate using AWS best practices on security and architecture
  • Create new compliance-as-code rules and make them available to the AWS community
  • Automate remediation
  • Use AWS Services: AWS CloudTrail, Amazon CloudWatch Events, Amazon SNS, AWS Config, Config Rules and AWS Lambda, Amazon EC2, Amazon S3, etc.

  • Solutions architects who want to integrate testing automation in their architecture
  • Security/compliance engineers who are interested in building security controls testing
  • Developers who want to verify the standardization of their AWS environment
  • Managed-service partners to provide confidence on their services to their customers
