As government agencies move more sensitive workloads to the cloud, they also need to achieve security and compliance requirements. To help agencies learn about the necessary steps and best practices for success, Amazon Web Services (AWS) will host a series of webinars from Nov. 2-6.
The seven-part webinar series, AWS Compliance Week, aims to help government agencies accelerate cloud compliance for sensitive and regulated workloads in the AWS Cloud. AWS solutions architects will discuss how IT practitioners and security experts can improve security and reliability, address compliance requirements, and move their mission-critical workloads to the AWS Cloud.
AWS offers dedicated regions, services and solutions designed specifically for government agencies and organizations working with regulated and sensitive data. AWS GovCloud (US) Regions address security and compliance requirements and can help IT departments accelerate compliance with Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP) High, FISMA High, DoD SRG Impact Level 5, International Traffic in Arms Regulation (ITAR), and Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) requirements.
Whether your agency is small or large, handles sensitive data, is public facing, or a defense agency, it doesn’t have to compromise on compliance or security.
Below are common challenges your agency may be facing that each webinar will address:
