Our security culture is one of the things that sets AWS apart. Security is job zero — it is the foundation for all AWS employees and impacts the work we do every day, across the company. And that’s reflected in our services, which undergo exacting internal and external security reviews before being released.
From there, we have historically waited for customer demand to begin the complex process of third-party assessment and validating services under specific compliance programs. However, we’ve heard you tell us you want every generally available (GA) service in scope to keep up with the pace of your innovation and at the same time, meet rigorous compliance and regulatory requirements. I wanted to share how we’re meeting this challenge with a more proactive approach to service certification by certifying services at launch.
For the first time, we’ve launched new GA services with PCI DSS, ISO 9001/27001/27017/27018, SOC 2, and HIPAA eligibility. That means customers who rely on or require these compliance programs can select from 10 brand new services right away, without having to wait for one or more trailing audit cycles. Verifying the security and compliance of the following new services is as simple as going to the console and using AWS Artifact to download the audit reports.
