AWS Gets DoD CSM Provisional Authorization


All four of Amazon Web Sevices’ infrastructure regions in the U.S., including AWS GovCloud (U.S.), have received a Department of Defense (DoD) provisional authorization under the DoD Cloud Security Model (CSM) for Impact Levels 1-2.

Built on the foundation of the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP), which provides a standardized approach to security assessment, authorization, the DoD CSM includes additional security controls specific to the DoD.
