AWS Compliance

AWS complies with the main Australian and International standards as detailed here.

The compliance standards that are relevant to the Superannuation and Financial Services industry are:

  • The Information Security Registered Assessors Program (IRAP) which enables Australian government customers to validate that appropriate controls are in place and determine the appropriate responsibility model for addressing the needs of the Australian Signals Directorate (ASD) Information Security Manual (ISM).  View the Letter of Compliance here.
  • ISO 27001 which is a security management standard that specifies security management best practices and comprehensive security controls.  The basis of this certification is the development and implementation of a rigorous security program, which includes the development and implementation of an Information Security Management System (ISMS) which defines how AWS perpetually manages security in a holistic, comprehensive manner.
