We’re celebrating the addition of 31 new services in scope with our latest SOC report, pushing AWS past the century mark for the first time – with 104 total services in scope, to be exact! These services are now available under our System and Organizational Controls (SOC) 1, 2, and 3 audits, including the 31 new services added during this most recent audit cycle. These SOC reports are now available to you on demand in the AWS Management Console. The SOC 3 report can also be downloaded online as a pdf.
The SOC 2 report has been updated to align with the new Association of International Certified Professional Accountants (AICPA) Trust Service Criteria. The new Trust Service Criteria align with the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission (COSO) 2013 framework and are designed to provide flexibility that better addresses cybersecurity risks. The new Trust Service Criteria provide customers with more information on how AWS mitigates cybersecurity risks. Updates related to the new Trust Service Criteria are as follows:
- Restructuring and realignment of the Trust Service Criteria with the COSO 2013 Framework.
- Restructuring and addition of supplemental criteria to better address cybersecurity risks.
- Inclusion of the 17 COSO principles within the SOC 2 common criteria.
- Additional points of focus added to all criteria, such as requirements to add additional description around service commitments and system requirements.
Here are the 31 services newly added to our SOC scope:
