OSPAR 2020 report now available with 105 services in scope

We are excited to announce the addition of 41 new services in the scope of our latest Outsourced Service Provider Audit Report (OSPAR) audit cycle, for a total of 105 services in the Asia Pacific (Singapore) Region. The newly added services include:

  • AWS Security Hub, which gives you a comprehensive view of high-priority security alerts and security posture across your AWS accounts.
  • AWS Organizations, which helps you to centrally manage billing; control access, compliance, and security; and share resources across your AWS accounts.
  • Amazon CloudFront, which provides a fast content delivery network (CDN) service that securely delivers data, videos, applications, and APIs to customers globally with low latency and high transfer speeds, all within a developer-friendly environment.
  • AWS Backup, which is a fully managed backup service that makes it easy to centralize and automate the backup of data across AWS services.

You can download our latest OSPAR report available in AWS Artifact.

An independent third-party auditor performs the OSPAR assessment. The assessment demonstrates that AWS has a system of controls in place that meet the Association of Banks in Singapore’s (ABS) Guidelines on Control Objectives and Procedures for Outsourced Service Providers. Our alignment with the ABS guidelines demonstrates to customers our commitment to meet the security expectations for cloud service providers set by the financial services industry in Singapore. You can leverage the OSPAR assessment report to conduct due diligence, minimizing the effort and costs required for compliance.

As always, we are committed to bringing new services into the scope of our OSPAR program based on your architectural and regulatory needs. Please reach out to your AWS account team if you have questions about the OSPAR report.
