Why you need to pay extra attention to compliance

What Minfy can do for compliance

  • To whom is the data visible?
  • Is it a shared view?
  • Is it going to be our people or a third party who manages the infrastructure?

When you have a Premier Partner like Minfy by your side you get the best of AWS with the greatest of visibility that we bring to the table. AWS operates, manages and controls the components from the host operating system and virtualization layer down to the physical security of the facilities in which the service operates. While your business assumes responsibility and management of the guest operating system (including updates and security patches), other associated application software as well as the configuration of the AWS provided security group firewall.

AWS continually monitors and achieves third party validations for thousands of its compliance requirements.

Your business can inherit the latest security controls. This in turn will strengthen your own compliance and certification programs. While reducing the cost an time to run your own assurance requirements.

Reduction of risk and scaling up are operational certainties with the AWS activity monitoring services. Not a guarantee, they however help the business in detecting configuration changes and security events across the system.

Laws and Security

Cloud compliance as an overall concept is about complying with the laws and regulations that apply to using the cloud. This becomes even more of an imperative when there is cross country data processing on the one hand or strong local laws on the other. There could be an array of laws - data protection laws, data localization laws and data sovereignty laws. In addition, you may need to consider interception laws or access to information laws, which may enable Governments or others to access your data in the cloud. There could also be a situation where multi-country laws may also apply. There is a significant overlap between security and compliance. Security is a companion to compliance. Some of the areas Minfy can impact are:
