Your privacy considerations are at the core of our compliance work, and at AWS, we are focused on the protection of your content while using Amazon Web Services. Our Fall 2020 SOC 2 Type I Privacy report is now available, demonstrating the privacy compliance commitments we made to you.

The Fall 2020 SOC 2 Type I Privacy report provides you with a third-party attestation of our system and the suitability of the design of our privacy controls. The SOC 2 Privacy Trust Service Criteria (TSC), developed by the American Institute of CPAs (AICPA) establishes the criteria for evaluating controls relating to how personal information is collected, used, retained, disclosed and disposed of to meet AWS’s objectives. Customers can find additional information related to privacy commitments supporting our SOC2 Type 1 report in the Customer Agreement documentation.

The scope of the privacy report includes information about how we handle the content that you upload to AWS and how it is protected in all of the services and locations that are in scope for the latest AWS SOC reports. You can find our SOC 2 Type I Privacy report through Artifact in the AWS Management Console.

As always, we value your feedback and questions. Please feel free to reach out to the team through the Contact Us page. If you have feedback about this post, submit comments in the Comments section below.
