Your privacy considerations are at the core of our compliance work at Amazon Web Services, and we are focused on the protection of your content while using AWS. Our Spring 2021 SOC 2 Type I Privacy report is now available to demonstrate our privacy compliance commitment to you.

The Spring 2021 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. You can find additional information related to privacy commitments supporting our SOC 2 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 AWS 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.
