Complimentary White Paper
Before using Amazon Web Services (AWS), it’s important to understand that as an IaaS provider, AWS is only responsible by default for the security of its cloud infrastructure. AWS goes through great efforts to make customers aware of their responsibilities through the AWS Shared Responsibility Model. The web pages explaining the basics of AWS services frequently reference the model to offer complete transparency into which responsibilities are always taken care of by AWS and which are to be handled by the customer.
This white paper is intended to help you make better-informed decisions about the security control options for AWS usage so you can choose the best combination of controls for your organization’s situation and needs.
