AWS announces Cloud Companion Guide for the CSA Cyber Trust mark

Amazon Web Services (AWS) is excited to announce the release of a new Cloud Companion Guide to help customers prepare for the Cyber Trust mark developed by the Cyber Security Agency of Singapore (CSA).

The Cloud Companion Guide to the CSA’s Cyber Trust mark provides guidance and a mapping of AWS services and features to applicable domains of the mark. It aims to provide customers with an understanding of which AWS services and tools they can use to help fulfill the requirements set out in the Cyber Trust mark.

The Cyber Trust mark aims to guide organizations to understand their risk profiles and identify relevant cybersecurity preparedness areas required to mitigate these risks. It also serves as a mark of distinction for organizations to show that they have put in place good cybersecurity practices and measures that are commensurate with their cybersecurity risk profile.

The guide does not cover compliance topics such as physical and maintenance controls, or organization-specific requirements such as policies and human resources controls. This makes the guide lightweight and focused on security considerations for AWS services. For a full list of AWS compliance programs, see the AWS Compliance Center.

We hope that organizations of all sizes can use the Cloud Companion Guide for Cyber Trust to implement AWS specific security services and tools to help them achieve effective controls. By understanding which security services and tools are available on AWS, and which controls are applicable to them, customers can build secure workloads and applications on AWS.

“At AWS, security is our top priority, and we remain committed to helping our Singapore customers enhance their cloud security posture, and engender trust from our customers’ end-users,” said Joel Garcia, Head of Technology, ASEAN, “The Cloud Security Companion Guide is one way we work with government agencies such as the Cyber Security Agency of Singapore to do so. Customers who implement these steps can secure their cloud environments better, mitigate risks, and achieve effective controls to build secure workloads on AWS.”
