The European Union’s new regulatory framework for data protection laws, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), became enforceable on 25 May, 2018. Under GDPR, organisations have new obligations to improve the security and privacy practices for the personal data they collect and use. With these new obligations comes the potential for heavier fines and penalties. Fortunately, Amazon Web Services (AWS) can help guide your organisation toward compliance under the new requirements. Take advantage of our services, resources, and experts as you navigate these changes.
In January 2016, the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program released a draft of its high-impact baseline for moving federal data to the cloud. Not long after, Amazon Web Services (AWS) accepted an offer to pilot the new security threshold. AWS worked with FedRAMP to develop a set of standards under which highly sensitive government data could securely migrate into cloud environments. If ever you doubted that cloud computing was the new frontier for federal data and software management, look around. Over 2,300 government agencies worldwide have already migrated to the AWS Cloud. And in the U.S., this will only increase with the release of FedRAMP’s high baseline standards. Previously, CSPs could only become certified at a low or moderate baseline under FedRAMP, meaning agencies had no security baseline from which to spring their sensitive data into the cloud. These new standards effectively represent the fall of the final formal barrier to federal cloud computing. Terabytes o
This document provides information to assist customers who want to use AWS to store or process content containing personal data, in the context of common privacy and data protection considerations. It will help customers understand: the way AWS services operate, including how customers can address security and encrypt their content, the geographic locations where customers can choose to store content, and the respective roles the customer and AWS each play in managing and securing content stored on AWS services.
Imperva, an APN Security Competency Partner, can help protect your application workloads on AWS with the Imperva SaaS Web Application Security
platform. The Imperva high-capacity network of globally distributed security services protects websites against all types of DDoS threats, including networklevel Layer 3 and Layer 4 volumetric attacks—such as synchronized (SYN) floods and User Datagram Protocol (UDP) floods—and Layer 7 application-level
attacks (including the OWASP Top 10 threats) that attempt to compromise application resources. Harnessing real data about current threats from a global
customer base, both the Web Application Firewall (WAF) and DDoS protection, incorporate an advanced client classification system that blocks malicious
traffic without interfering with legitimate users. Enterprises can easily create custom security rules in the GUI to enforce their specific security policy. In

DigiCert implemented Imperva to protect their hybrid environment. They
were already using Imperva’s WAF on-premises to defend against Layer 7
attacks, known threats, and zero-day attacks to rapidly identify the threats
that required investigation. By expanding their usage of Imperva, DigiCert
was able to extend protection to AWS and maintain their security posture
both during and after migration.
Imperva’s sophisticated threat detection technology draws upon vast
experience in the WAF market. As traffic passes through their network,
advanced client classification technology (together with crowdsourcing
and IP reputation data) automatically analyzes it to identify and block web
application attacks. These include SQL injection, cross-site scripting, illegal
resource access, comment spam, site scraping, malicious bots, and other
top threats. Granular filters and controls reduce false positives and prevent
access from unwanted visitors, while IP address shielding hides the web
Software development has evolved from rigid waterfall methodologies to more streamlined
approaches, like Agile and more recently DevOps. This evolution has taken place in
large part to shorten development life cycles and meet increased business demands.
Today, businesses of all sizes have built an advantage by implementing a DevOps culture
and processes, which break down silos between development and operations, allowing
organizations to create better software faster.
As organizations implement DevOps on Amazon Web Services (AWS), they need to
understand the security implications. The AWS Shared Responsibility Model makes clear
that AWS secures what’s “on the cloud,” while the customer is responsible for securing
their assets “in the cloud.” When AWS customers go about securing their DevOps
environments, they need to do so in a way that provides robust protection without limiting

Stay ahead of the evolving threats.
Organized crime is driving the rapid growth and sophisticated evolution of advanced threats that put entire website ecosystems at risk, and no organization is safe.
The stealthy nature of these threats gives cybercriminals the time to go deeper into website environments, very often with severe consequences.
The longer the time before detection and resolution, the more damage is inflicted. The risk and size of fines, lawsuits, reparation costs, damaged reputation, loss of operations, loss of sales, and loss of customers pile up higher and higher.
The complexity of website security management and lack of visibility across website ecosystems is further impacted by the fact that it is nearly impossible to know how and where to allocate resources.
Website security must be evolved in line with these growing threats and challenges.
AWS provides powerful controls to manage the security of software-defined infrastructure and

A penetration test, or pen-test, is an attempt to evaluate the security of an IT infrastructure by safely trying to exploit vulnerabilities. These vulnerabilities may exist in operating systems, services and application flaws, improper configurations or risky end-user behavior. Such assessments are also useful in validating the efficacy of defensive mechanisms, as well as, end-user adherence to security policies.
This eBook provides a simple guide to explain both penetration testing's purpose and a basic guide to getting you there. Download now and start testing your network today.
Businesses today are faced with the almost insurmountable task of complying with a confusing array of laws and regulations relating to data privacy and security. These can come from a variety of sources: local, state, national, and, even, international law makers. This is not just a problem for big businesses. Even a small business with a localised geographic presence may be subject to laws from other states and, possibly, other nations by virtue of having a presence on the internet.
In many instances, these laws and regulations are vague and ambiguous, with little specific guidance as to compliance. Worse yet, the laws of different jurisdictions may be, and frequently are, conflicting. One state or country may require security measures that are entirely different from those of another state or country. Reconciling all of these legal obligations can be, at best, a full time job and, at worst, the subject of fines, penalties, and lawsuits.
