The AWS Compliance Program helps customers to understand the robust controls in place at AWS to maintain security and compliance in the cloud. By tying together governance-focused, audit-friendly service features with applicable compliance or audit standards, AWS Compliance Enablers build on traditional programs, helping customers to establish and operate in an AWS security control environment.
IT standards we comply with are broken out by Certifications and Attestations; Laws, Regulations and Privacy; and Alignments and Frameworks. Compliance certifications and attestations are assessed by a third-party, independent auditor and result in a certification, audit report, or attestation of compliance. AWS customers remain responsible for complying with applicable compliance laws, regulations and privacy programs. Compliance alignments and frameworks include published security or compliance requirements for a specific purpose, such as a specific industry or function.
At AWS, customer trust is our top priority. We deliver services to millions of active customers, including enterprises, educational institutions, and government agencies in over 190 countries. Our customers include financial services providers, healthcare providers, and governmental agencies, who trust us with some of their most sensitive information.
