Amazon Web Services (AWS) for Sensitive and Restricted Data

Amazon Web Services platform is permitted for Restricted & Sensitive data, with a risk assessment of the individual use case by Cybersecurity, and the implementation of the controls and processes identified in the risk assessment (see below for detail).

Please note that Google Cloud Platform (GCP) for Sensitive and Restricted Data is the preferred provider for Restricted & Sensitive data workloads on campus. GCP provides many of the same services as AWS and has additional campus support and tooling specific to restricted data. Should you choose to proceed with AWS as your platform of choice, you will be taking on additional responsibilities for providing appropriate security to your account.

The account owner still maintains the responsibility to achieve & maintain the appropriate security controls per campus policy. The cloud team can advise and consult on best practices.
