AWS CyberVadis report now available for due diligence on third-party suppliers
At Amazon Web Services (AWS), we’re continuously expanding our compliance programs to provide you with more tools and resources to perform effective due diligence on AWS. We’re excited to announce the availability of the AWS CyberVadis report to help you reduce the burden of performing due diligence on your third-party suppliers.
With the increase in adoption of cloud products and services across multiple sectors and industries, AWS is a critical component of customers’ third-party environments. Regulated customers, such as those in the financial services sector, are held to high standards by regulators and auditors when it comes to exercising effective due diligence on third parties.
Many customers use third-party cyber risk management (TPCRM) services such as CyberVadis to better manage risks from their evolving third-party environments and to drive operational efficiencies. To help with such efforts, AWS has completed the CyberVadis assessment of its security posture. CyberVadis security analysts perform the assessment and validate the results annually.
CyberVadis is a comprehensive third-party risk assessment process that combines the speed and scalability of automation with the certainty of analyst validation. The CyberVadis cybersecurity rating methodology assesses the maturity of a company’s information security management system (ISMS) through its policies, implementation measures, and results.
CyberVadis integrates responses from AWS with analytics and risk models to provide an in-depth view of the AWS security posture. The CyberVadis methodology maps to major international compliance standards, including the following:
- International Organization for Standardization (ISO) 2700x
- National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Cybersecurity Framework and Cybersecurity for Industrial Control Systems (ICS)
- Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS)
Customers can download the AWS CyberVadis report at no additional cost. For details on how to access the report, see our AWS CyberVadis report page.
