Our teams are continuing to focus on compliance enablement around the world and now that includes a new guide for public sector customers in India. The User Guide for Government Departments and Agencies in India provides information that helps government users at various central, state, district, and municipal agencies understand security and controls available with AWS. It also explains how to implement appropriate information security, risk management, and governance programs using AWS Services, which are offered in India by Amazon Internet Services Private Limited (AISPL).

The guide focuses on the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (Meity) requirements that are detailed in Guidelines for Government Departments for Adoption/Procurement of Cloud Services, addressing common issues that public sector customers encounter.

Our newest guide is part of a series diving into customer compliance issues across industries and jurisdictions, such as financial services guides for Singapore, Australia, and Hong Kong. We’ll be publishing additional guides this year to help you understand other regulatory requirements around the world.
