The AWS CISO on AWS Security

As you can tell by looking at the AWS Security and Compliance Center, we take security seriously. You can find information about our certifications and accreditations in the center, along with links to four security white papers.

I would also like to recommend a new AWS video to you. In the video, AWS VP and CISO Stephen Schmidt discusses security and privacy in the AWS Cloud, in concrete and specific terms:

Here are my favorite quotes from the video:

No hard drive leaves our facilities intact. Period.

I run security for the company. I don’t have access to our data centers because I don’t need to be there on a regular basis.

If you happen to talk to someone who doesn’t quite grasp what cloud security means, please share this video with them and let me know what happens.
