The European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation 2016/679 (GDPR) safeguards EU citizens’ fundamental right to privacy and to personal data protection. In order to make local regulations coherent and homogeneous, the GDPR introduces and defines stringent new standards in terms of compliance, security and data protection.
The updated version of our Navigating GDPR Compliance on AWS whitepaper (.pdf) explains the role that AWS plays in your GDPR compliance process and shows how AWS can help your organization accelerate the process of aligning your compliance programs to the GDPR by using AWS cloud services.
AWS compliance, data protection, and security experts work with customers across the world to help them run workloads in the AWS Cloud, including customers who must operate within GDPR requirements. AWS teams also review what AWS is responsible for to make sure that our operations comply with the requirements of the GDPR so that customers can continue to use AWS services. The whitepaper provides guidelines to better orient you to the wide variety of AWS security offerings and to help you identify the service that best suits your GDPR compliance needs.
