2022 H1 IRAP report is now available on AWS Artifact

We’re excited to announce that a new Information Security Registered Assessors Program (IRAP) report is now available on AWS Artifact. Amazon Web Services (AWS) successfully completed an IRAP assessment in May 2022 by an independent ASD (Australian Signals Directorate) certified IRAP assessor. The new IRAP report includes an additional nine AWS services that are now assessed at the PROTECTED classification under IRAP. This brings the total number of services assessed at PROTECTED to 132.

For a full list of these services, see the IRAP tab on the AWS Services in Scope page. The following services are the nine newly assessed services:

The IRAP documentation pack is developed in accordance with the Australian Cyber Security Centre (ACSC) Cloud Security Guidance and their Anatomy of a Cloud Assessment and Authorisation framework, which addresses guidance within the Australian Government Information Security Manual (ISM), the Attorney-General’s Protective Security Policy Framework (PSPF), and the Digital Transformation Agency (DTA) Secure Cloud Strategy.

The IRAP package on AWS Artifact also includes the AWS Consumer Guide and the whitepaper Reference Architectures for ISM PROTECTED Workloads in the AWS Cloud.

The IRAP documentation pack is developed to assist Australian government agencies and their partners to plan, architect, and assess risk for their workloads when they use AWS Cloud services. Reach out to your AWS representatives to let us know which additional services you would like to see in scope for upcoming IRAP assessments. We strive to bring more services into scope at the PROTECTED level to support your requirements.
