Abstract

AWS serves a variety of customers, including those in regulated industries. Through our shared responsibility model, we enable customers to manage risk effectively and efficiently in the IT environment, and provide assurance of effective risk management through our compliance with established, widely recognized, frameworks, and programs. This paper outlines the mechanisms that AWS has implemented to manage risk on the AWS side of the Shared Responsibility Model, and the tools that customers can leverage to gain assurance that these mechanisms are being implemented effectively.
