We are excited to announce specialization categories for the AWS Level 1 MSSP Competency. These six new specialized managed security services for the Level 1 MSSP Competency help customers discover partner solutions validated by AWS security experts to provide 24x7 monitoring and response services that include and extend beyond AWS’s Level 1 Managed Security Services (Level 1 MSS) baseline. AWS introduced the Level 1 MSS baseline detailing ten foundational capabilities for MSSP partners to align their managed services to in August 2021, along with the Level 1 MSSP Competency, establishing an industry-first quality standard for customers to measure their security operations to.

The six new specialization categories, each including the ten foundational Level 1 MSS baseline services, are: identity behavior monitoring; data privacy event management; modern compute security monitoring for containers and serverless technologies; managed application security testing; digital forensics and incident response support; business continuity and ransomware readiness to recover from potentially disruptive events. Customers can confidently get the help they need for a holistic managed security service tailored for their uniquely challenging environments from validated Level 1 MSSP Competency Partners with these additional areas of specialization.
