AWS' cloud platform provides tools that enable customers to run a wide range of applications. Adhering to a specific security protocol will help to protect the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of your systems and data. DLT Solutions recommends following Amazon Web Services Security Best Practices Guide when planning and implementing your AWS infrastructure. This guide will provide answers to a multitude of questions surrounding topics such as Encryption, Log Mangement, Access Control, Change Management, and Compliance Management.
It is important to understand that AWS has a Shared Responsibility Model in which AWS is responsible for the security of the cloud and the customer is responsible for security in the cloud. AWS will secure the physical global infrastructure including data centers, storage, and networking. The customer is responsible for the security and encryption of their Operating Systems, Applications, Network Configuration, et cetera.
