The AWS Shared Responsibility Model makes it clear that AWS customers are responsible for selecting and acquiring all the security controls for their operating systems, applications, and data residing on top of the AWS infrastructure, as well as all of their network use. These controls are usually provided by a combination of AWS, third parties, and your organization. Failure to fulfill all the responsibilities specified in the model means that your AWS-hosted applications and data will be more susceptible to data breaches and other compromises, with potentially disastrous results.
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.
