Today, AWS Backup adds centralized, multi-account reporting for AWS Organizations, making it easier for you to demonstrate compliance and meet regulatory auditing needs across your accounts and Regions. Now, you can use your organization’s management account to generate aggregated reports on your data protection policies and retrieve operational data about your backup and recovery activities from multiple accounts and AWS Regions using AWS Backup Audit Manager. AWS Backup enables you to centralize and automate data protection across AWS services based on organizational best practices and regulatory standards. With AWS Backup Audit Manager, you can generate auditor-ready reports to help prove compliance of your backup policies with your defined industry-specific regulatory requirements. 

To get started with centralized reporting, you can create a report plan using AWS Backup Audit Manager from your AWS Organization’s management account. Report plans allow you to generate periodic reports for your backup, copy, and restore activities as well as resource and controls compliance. You can specify the AWS accounts, organizational units (OUs), and Regions from which you want to aggregate data and customize your report delivery preferences in the report plan.

Centralized reporting with AWS Backup Audit Manager is now available in US East (N. Virginia, Ohio), US West (N. California, Oregon), Canada (Central), Europe (Frankfurt, Ireland, London, Paris, Stockholm), South America (Sao Paulo), and Asia Pacific (Mumbai, Seoul, Singapore, Sydney, Tokyo) Regions. For more information on AWS Backup availability and pricing, see the AWS Regional Services List and pricing page.
