Cloud-Security1 Good news for all those interested in security…we’ve released the fourth version of our Overview of Security Processes whitepaper. It contains ten pages of new and additional detailed information. Highlights of new content include:

  • A description of the AWS control environment
  • A list of our SAS-70 Type II Control Objectives
  • Some discussion of risk management and shared responsibility principles
  • Greater visibility into our monitoring and communication processes and our employee lifecycle
  • Descriptions of our physical security, environmental safeguards, configuration management, and business continuity management processes and plans
  • Updated summaries of new AWS security features
  • Additional detail about the security attributes of various AWS components

The additional information and greater level of detail should help to answer many common questions. As always, feel free to reach out to us if you’re still needing more information.
