Innovation for the Nordics
A new, sustainable path for public sector leaders on the front line of digital transformation
Tens of thousands of customers in Sweden, Norway, Finland, Denmark, and Iceland already use Amazon Web Services (AWS). With our dedicated Europe (Stockholm) Region established in 2018, we are able to help even more organizations in the Nordics to support and deliver crucial services such as e-learning, healthcare, and transportation in the cloud, as well as support their ongoing innovation.
Top priority: Security and data protection
Find out why our services are safe and secure for government organizations in the Nordics on our dedicated security webpage. You can also learn more about how AWS supports safe operation within the Clarifying Lawful Overseas Use of Data (Cloud) Act. Watch interviews with our customers on compliance-related solutions, including Secureappbox, who helped rehome 60,000 refugees in Sweden, based on a request by Sverige Kommuner och Regioner (SKR).
See how to be compliant with data sovereignty laws. We’ve laid it all out on our compliance webpage, which includes FAQs. AWS is designed to help you build secure, high-performing, resilient, and efficient infrastructure for your applications.
Digital Government eBook
The world of digital government is transforming. Driven by new ideas and a demand for data, the global community needs innovative ways to turn its ideas into reality. In this eBook, you’ll learn about digital government successes from around the world across healthcare, transport, elections, cybersecurity, and more.
Our reliable and secure cloud infrastructure, coupled with data centres throughout the world, are helping countries to share new thinking and successful ideas in ways that are both cost-effective and scalable. Use what limited resources you have efficiently—eliminate time spent managing IT solutions and instead focus on the task at hand.
Healthcare in the cloud
Healthcare is on the front line to help citizens. Advanced technologies supported in the cloud play a vital role in supporting research, sequencing, processes, and more in the pursuit of a better life for all.
You can find out more about these technologies with the most recent case studies, insights, and information in our eBook, Changing Lives: The Future of Healthcare in the Cloud, available to download now.
Spotlight: The Science for Life Laboratory (SciLifeLab)
SciLifeLab is Sweden’s national centre and resource for molecular biosciences. Its National Genomics Infrastructure (NGI) division provides DNA sequencing and analysis for research groups across the country. The NGI relies on the support of the AWS Cloud for scalable sequencing and analysis and the Stockholm AWS Region for handling its sensitive data.
Keep your data in the Nordics
Store data locally
The AWS Europe (Stockholm) Region allows customers with data localisation requirements to store their data locally, with the assurance that the content will not be moved except in the event of customer authorisation. Customers can capitalise on the AWS Nordics (Stockholm) region with the assurance that they always control their data and can encrypt, move, and manage their retention.
Stay secure and compliant
With AWS, security starts with our infrastructure. Created specifically for the cloud and designed to meet the most stringent security criteria in the world, our infrastructure is monitored 24/7 to provide the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of our customers’ data. We design, build, and regularly audit all AWS infrastructure regions around the world to meet the highest standards of compliance and provide a high level of security to all AWS customers. These standards include ISO 27001, ISO 27017, ISO 27018, SOC 1 (formerly SAS 70), SOC 2 and SOC 3 security and availability, PCI DSS Level 1, Health Data Host (HDS), and many others.
Reduce the risks
The AWS Europe (Stockholm) Region offers three Availability Zones. Availability Zones designate the technological infrastructures located in separate geographic locations and sufficiently distant to considerably reduce the risk that a single event affects availability, but close enough to ensure the continuity of applications which require rapid recovery in response to an event.
Amazon Web Services (AWS) is committed to our customers across the Nordics and you can now use the AWS Europe (Stockholm) Region to deliver websites, applications, and content to end users across the Nordics with lower latency. You can also use AWS services for advanced technologies, such as analytics, database, mobile services, and serverless, to drive innovation with even more flexibility. The breadth and depth of AWS services can drive huge cost savings, speed up time-to-market and increase agility, with just a few clicks.
