AWS recently released the first guide in the new AWS Government Handbook Series: Secure Network Connections: An evaluation of the US Trusted Internet Connections program. This new series examines key cybersecurity initiatives that have been operating in the traditional IT space, unpacks their objectives, and identifies lessons learned and best practices of global government first movers and early adopters seeking to achieve the initiative’s outcomes in the cloud.

In particular, “Secure Network Connections” provides guidance to government policy makers on AWS’s position and recommendations for establishing cloud-based network perimeter capabilities. Note that this guidance can be applied to any organization that requires centralized perimeter network . The guide also summarizes lessons learned from AWS’s work with the US (DHS) through an of its federal secure network connections program, Trusted Internet Connections (TIC).
