Inherit the most comprehensive compliance controls with AWS. AWS supports more security standards and compliance certifications than any other offering, including PCI-DSS, HIPAA/HITECH, FedRAMP, GDPR, FIPS 140-2, and NIST 800-171, helping customers satisfy compliance requirements for virtually every regulatory agency around the globe. Get started with the broadest set of compliance offerings today.


AWS regularly achieves third-party validation for thousands of global compliance requirements that we continually monitor to help you meet security and compliance standards for finance, retail, healthcare, government, and beyond.

These controls strengthen your own compliance and certification programs, while also receiving access to tools you can use to reduce your cost and time to run your own specific security assurance requirements.

Traditional assurance methods become challenging with scale. Reduce risk and enable scale by using our activity monitoring services that detect configuration changes and security events across your system, even integrating our services with your existing solutions to simplify your operations and compliance reporting.

AWS provides information about its compliance programs to help customers incorporate AWS controls into their governance framework. This information can assist customers in documenting a complete control and governance framework with AWS included as an important part of that framework.

Compliance is the state of being in accordance with established guidelines or specifications, or the process of becoming so. Software, for example, may be developed in compliance with specifications created by a standards body, and then deployed by user organizations in compliance with a vendor's licensing agreement. The definition of compliance can also encompass efforts to ensure that organizations are abiding by both industry regulations and government legislation.

Compliance is a prevalent business concern, partly because of an ever-increasing number of regulations that require companies to be vigilant about maintaining a full understanding of their regulatory requirements for compliance. To adhere to compliance standards, an organization must follow requirements or regulations imposed by either itself or government legislation.

IT compliance guidelines vary by country; Sarbanes-Oxley Act, for example, is U.S. legislation. Similar legislation in other countries includes Germany's Deutscher Corporate Governance Kodex and Australia's Corporate Law Economic Reform Program Act 2004. As a result, multinational organizations must be cognizant of the regulatory compliance requirements of each country they operate within. For example, GDPR applies to all organizations that are based outside the European Union, as long as they also operate in the EU.

There are two main types of compliance that denote where the framework is coming from: corporate and regulatory. Both corporate and regulatory compliance consist of a framework of rules, regulations and practices to follow.

As regulations and other guidelines have increasingly become a concern for corporate management, companies are turning more frequently to specialized compliance software and IT compliance consultancies. Many organizations have even added compliance jobs, such as the role of chief compliance officer (CCO).

The main responsibilities of a CCO include ensuring the organization is able to both manage compliance risk and pass a compliance audit. The exact nature of a compliance audit will vary, depending on factors such as the organization's industry, whether it is a public or private company, and the nature of the data it creates, collects and stores. Other responsibilities of a CCO include identifying the potential risks an organization faces, assessing the effectiveness of any risk-prevention processes and resolving any compliance issues.

Related to that, compliance is also the strain of an elastic body expressed as a function of the force producing the strain. In other words, compliance describes how easy it is for something to pool or flow within parts of the body or flexible vessels.

NIH and its recipient institutions share responsibility for compliance and oversight to ensure good stewardship of Federal funds. The relationship between NIH and its recipients is predicated on trust. Recipients are expected to properly administer sponsored activities and comply with applicable regulations and policies.

Note: Some terminology used in these presentations may have changed, but the compliance principles have not. Please refer to the Glossary on the NIH Grants Policy website for current terms and definitions.

The Privacy Office assesses the privacy risk of DHS information technology (IT) systems, technologies, rulemakings, programs, pilot projects, information collections, or forms (collectively referred to as "systems and programs"), and develops mitigation strategies by reviewing and approving all DHS privacy compliance documentation.

The privacy compliance process is an ongoing cycle with four key parts to ensure appropriate oversight: Privacy Threshold Analysis (PTA), Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA), System of Records Notice (SORN), and periodic review. Each part has a distinct function in implementing privacy policy at DHS, and together they enhance the oversight of and transparency into Department activities and demonstrate accountability to the public.

The first step in the process for DHS staff seeking to implement or update a system or program is to complete a PTA. The DHS Privacy Office reviews the PTA to determine if the system or program is privacy-sensitive and requires additional privacy compliance documentation such as a PIA or SORN. PTAs expire and must be reviewed and re-certified every three years or when changes/updates occur. In addition, the DHS Privacy Office will also determine if a Privacy Act Statement or Privacy Notice is required, which provide transparency and notice to the person from whom Personally Identifiable Information (PII) is being collected.

The State Ethics Commission conducts ethics compliance reviews of all Executive branch agencies. The primary purpose of the Commission's compliance reviews is to ensure that State agencies are meeting reporting, training and other requirements of the State's ethics laws and regulations. The compliance review process is also designed to determine whether State agencies have implemented needed procedures and practices that will prevent and detect ethics violations.Prior to conducting an agency compliance review, the Commission's Ethics Compliance Officer will provide the agency's Ethics Liaison Officer with a Document Checklist which will be used for the review. During the compliance review, the Ethics Compliance Officer and the agency Ethics Liaison Officer will discuss the agency's ethics program. The Ethics Compliance Officer will review agency practices and procedures for compliance with the State ethics laws, regulations, and Executive Orders. At the completion of the review, the Commission will evaluate the agency's compliance as well as identify best practices and areas in need of improvement. If an agency is not in substantial compliance with ethics requirements at the time of the review, the agency Ethics Liaison Officer and the agency head will be notified in writing and will be given a time frame to remedy deficiencies cited in the review. The State Ethics Commission views the compliance review process as an opportunity for agency Ethics Liaison Officers to obtain support and assistance for any ethics issues or problems they are experiencing. The Commission's Ethics Compliance Officer is available, during and after the review, to provide advice to the Ethics Liaison Officer concerning how his/her agency's ethics program can be improved. Questions regarding the Commission's Compliance Review Process can be directed to Rachel Santitoro, Ethics Compliance Officer, at 609-292-1892. 041b061a72
