The following sections describe security considerations:
Amazon Web Services places a high degree of importance on the security of your infrastructure. For an overview of the AWS Security Processes, we recommend reviewing their whitepaper.
We also encourage you to review the Securing Data at Rest with Encryption whitepaper to see an overview of the methods for securing your data.
If you have questions about the whitepapers or environment security, contact a member of your Support team.
As Amazon Web Services says on their Security Bulletins web page, “No matter how carefully engineered the services are, from time to time it may be necessary to notify customers of security and privacy events with AWS services.”
If you are interested in staying informed about these security bulletins, watch the AWS Security Bulletins web page or the companion RSS feed channels. Sometimes, Rackspace provides additional details or guidance to our customers for specific security incidents. We publish such value-add security updates here.
