Accelerate cloud compliance for sensitive and regulated workloads: Register for AWS Compliance Week

Technology leaders from U.S. government agencies and their industry partners in aerospace, defense, technology, and other regulated industries are moving more workloads to the cloud as part of IT modernization plans. When workloads involve mission-critical applications and sensitive data, including Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI), the added security and compliance scrutiny to keep them protected can be challenging. To help customers meet strict mandates and guidelines set forth by the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP), Department of Defense (DoD) Cloud Computing Security Requirements Guide (SRG), International Traffic and Arms Regulations (ITAR), Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC), and others, Amazon Web Services (AWS) offers purpose-built AWS GovCloud (US) Regions, services, solutions, and programs designed to help customers accelerate their compliance in the cloud.

If you are a technology professional looking to understand how cloud security adheres to compliance requirements, attend our AWS Compliance Week webinar series on November 2-6. You will learn how to architect compliant, multi-region cloud environments, establish agile governance for regulated workloads, and use new AWS solutions to help accelerate compliance. Hear government and industry perspectives on achieving high compliance from the General Services Administration’s FedRAMP program management office, and customers Maxar, Salesforce, and Coalfire.
