In December 1985, the Center for Financial Industry Information Systems (FISC) established security guidelines for using computer systems in banking and related financial institutions. These guidelines, known as FISC Security Guidelines, are broadly recognized and used by many Japanese financial institutions in the architecture and operation of their computer systems.

The Financial Services Agency’s (FSA) Financial Inspection Manual lists the FISC Security Guidelines as a document that inspectors can reference while conducting inspections at financial institutions.

The FISC Security Guidelines include a wide range of measures for the categories of Facility Guidelines, Operational Guidelines and Technical Guidelines. When customers use the AWS environment, it is necessary to review and clarify the responsibility on measures to be performed by AWS and by customers based on the Shared Responsibility Model according to each requirement. The following AWS solution providers’ websites provide information about review points and measures summarized based on the Shared Responsibility Model.
