AWS Compliance Week details

From November 4-8, Amazon Web Services (AWS) will host its first annual “AWS Compliance Week: Achieving Cloud Compliance and Security in the AWS Cloud” to help customers navigate and accelerate their cloud adoption plans for regulated workloads and sensitive data.

The five-part, week-long webinar series will highlight how AWS GovCloud (US) Regions are purpose-built to help customers realize cloud benefits when working with Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI), defense data, export-controlled data, and criminal justice information (CJI). Webinars will show how to use AWS NIST Quick Starts to quickly build compliant cloud environments for test, build, and production workloads and how ATO on AWS brings together resources to help expedite the authorization process by reducing the time and cost associated with achieving compliance certifications.
