With the increasing digitalization of the financial industry, and the importance of cloud computing as a key enabling technology for digitalization, the financial services industry is experiencing greater regulatory scrutiny. Our annual audit engagement with CCAG is an example of how AWS supports customers’ risk management and regulatory efforts. For the fifth year, the CCAG pooled audit meticulously assessed the AWS controls that enable us to help protect customers’ data and material workloads, while satisfying strict regulatory obligations.

Auditors assessed AWS policies, procedures, and controls, following a risk-based approach and using sampled evidence and access to subject matter experts (SMEs).

After a joint closure ceremony onsite in Warsaw, Poland, auditors finalized the audit report, which included the following positive feedback:

“CCAG would like to thank AWS for helping in achieving the audit objectives and to advocate on CCAG’s behalf to obtain the required assurances. In consequence, CCAG was able to execute the audit according to agreed timelines, and exercise audit rights in line with contractual conditions.”

The results of the CCAG pooled audit are available to the participants and their respective regulators only, and provide CCAG members with assurance regarding the AWS controls environment, enabling members to work to remove compliance blockers, accelerate their adoption of AWS services, and obtain confidence and trust in the security controls of AWS.
