This whitepaper provides information on risk and compliance activities in the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Cloud, and offers guidance on integrating the AWS Cloud into your existing control framework for your IT environment.
Since AWS and its customers share control over the IT environment, both parties have responsibility for managing the IT environment. AWS’ part in this shared responsibility includes providing its services on a highly secure and controlled platform and providing a wide array of security features customers can use. The customers’ responsibility includes configuring their IT environments in a secure and controlled manner for their purposes. While customers don’t communicate their use and configurations to AWS, AWS does communicate its security and control environment relevant to customers.
