New guide helps financial services customers in Brazil navigate cloud requirements

Post Syndicated from Leandro Bennaton original https://aws.amazon.com/blogs/security/new-guide-helps-financial-services-customers-in-brazil-navigate-cloud-requirements/

We have a new resource to help our financial services customers in Brazil navigate regulatory requirements for using the cloud. The AWS User Guide to Financial Services Regulations in Brazil is a deep dive into the Brazilian National Monetary Council’s Resolution No. 4,658. The cybersecurity cloud resolution is the first of its kind by regulators in Brazil. The guide details how our services may be able to assist you in achieving these security expectations.

The resolution covers topics such as implementing a cybersecurity policy, incident response, entering into agreements with cloud service providers, subcontracting, business continuity, and notification requirements. Our guide addresses each of these issues and provides specific guidance on how you can use AWS to satisfy requirements.

The AWS User Guide to Financial Services Regulations in Brazil is part of a series of publications that seek to facilitate customer compliance. It’s available in English and Portuguese. We’ll continue to monitor the regulatory environment in Brazil and around the world and to publish additional resources.

AWS Resources Addressing Argentina’s Personal Data Protection Law and Disposition No. 11/2006

Post Syndicated from Leandro Bennaton original https://aws.amazon.com/blogs/security/aws-and-resources-addressing-argentinas-personal-data-protection-law-and-disposition-no-112006/

We have two new resources to help customers address their data protection requirements in Argentina. These resources specifically address the needs outlined under the Personal Data Protection Law No. 25.326, as supplemented by Regulatory Decree No. 1558/2001 (“PDPL”), including Disposition No. 11/2006. For context, the PDPL is an Argentine federal law that applies to the protection of personal data, including during transfer and processing.

A new webpage focused on data privacy in Argentina features FAQs, helpful links, and whitepapers that provide an overview of PDPL considerations, as well as our security assurance frameworks and international certifications, including ISO 27001, ISO 27017, and ISO 27018. You’ll also find details about our Information Request Report and the high bar of security at AWS data centers.

Additionally, we’ve released a new workbook that offers a detailed mapping as to how customers can operate securely under the Shared Responsibility Model while also aligning with Disposition No. 11/2006. The AWS Disposition 11/2006 Workbook can be downloaded from the Argentina Data Privacy page or directly from this link. Both resources are also available in Spanish from the Privacidad de los datos en Argentina page.
