Dear [ your manager’s name ],

I’d like your permission to attend the cloud security focused conference:

AWS re:Inforce, from June 30-July 1 in Houston.

Attending this conference will be beneficial for both my personal growth and our company’s cloud security knowledge in the following areas:

  • Boost proficiency in core AWS security services.
  • Get educated on technical best practices at hundreds of highly targeted breakout sessions on such topics as infrastructure security, DDoS mitigation, data encryption, inventory and configuration, monitoring and logging, identity and access control, and penetration testing.
  • Gain valuable hands-on experience in technical bootcamps, labs, workshops, and security jams, which I can bring back to my team.

Here’s an estimated breakdown of costs:

  • Domestic Airfare estimate, $500
  • Hotel (three nights in Houston), $615 ($205 /night)
  • Full conference pass, $1,099

Total $2,214

After the conference, I'll circulate a report that will include a summary of what I learnt and a set of recommendations to mitigate risk and ensure compliance for our company.

Thank you for considering my request to attend this event.

Looking forward to your reply,
