At AWS Security, continuously raising the cloud security bar for our customers is central to all that we do. Part of that work is focused on our formal compliance certifications, which enable our customers to use the AWS cloud for highly sensitive and/or regulated workloads. We see our customers constantly developing creative and innovative solutions—and in order for them to continue to do so, we need to increase the availability of services within our certifications. I’m pleased to tell you that in the past year, we’ve increased our Payment Card Industry – Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) certification scope by 79%, from 62 services to 111 services, including 12 newly added services in our latest PCI report (listed below), and we were audited by our third-party auditor, Coalfire.
The PCI DSS report and certification cover the 111 services currently in scope that are used by our customers to architect a secure Cardholder Data Environment (CDE) to protect important workloads. The full list of PCI DSS certified AWS services is available on our Services in Scope by Compliance program page. The 12 newly added services for our Spring 2019 report are:
Our compliance reports, including this latest PCI report, are available on-demand through AWS Artifact.
