The Five Ws episode 1: Accreditation models for secure cloud adoption whitepaper

AWS whitepapers are a great way to expand your knowledge of the cloud. Authored by Amazon Web Services (AWS) and the AWS community, they provide in-depth content that often addresses specific customer situations.

We’re featuring some of our whitepapers in a new video series, The Five Ws. These short videos outline the who, what, when, where, and why of each whitepaper so you can decide whether to dig into it further.

The first whitepaper we’re featuring is Accreditation Models for Secure Cloud Adoption. This whitepaper provides cloud accreditation best practices to help you capitalize on the security benefits of commercial cloud computing while maximizing efficiency, scalability, and cost reduction. The paper includes a comparative analysis of different accreditation models in use today. Although the paper highlights public sector examples, the best practices also apply to private sector organizations considering cloud adoption.
