Conforming with AWS Compliance:

Turn Compliance into a Competitive Advantage with Automation

Welcome to Continuous Compliance

Grey Round Patterns

Compliance, even in AWS, can be painful to navigate, expensive to remediate, and inevitably becomes an 'urgent project’. Ironically, compliance projects distract resources from essential business-as-usual activities and once compliance has been achieved, maintaining compliance is an ongoing commitment.


Compliance with Standards or Security Best Practice?

AWS facilitates compliance with leading standards like CIS, PCI-DSS and AWS FSBP. Compliance in AWS is simply adherence to security best practice. Unfortunately, manual remediation means going through every single control, assigning the remediation to a resource and then booking in a time to review progress.

 

Compliance Drift: The Reality of Compliance Over Time

Even after sign-off from an auditor or project lead, a commitment is made to maintain that compliance info the future.

 

The reality is that change brings with it a deviation from best practice, and a drift away from compliance. Approximately 60% of PCI-DSS compliant companies failing their first PCI-DSS compliance anniversary.

 

Continuous Compliance Through Automation: From Pain to USP

Rather than dedicating valuable resources to monitoring, triaging and remediating compliance issues manually with inconsistent quality and timeliness of response, companies can now deploy an Automated Security and Continuous Compliance Platform and Playbook Library.

 

Turn compliance from a cost centre into a badge of honour that allows engagement with more customers, in turn reducing costs and growing revenue.
