JIIG-CAL Australia utilises Amazon Web Services (AWS) for our infrastructure which has achieved ISO27001 certification and successfully undertaken multiple SSAE 16 Audits.
AWS’s data centres are state of the art, utilizing innovative architectural and engineering approaches. Amazon has many years of experience in designing, constructing, and operating large-scale data centres. This experience has been applied to the AWS platform and infrastructure.
AWS provides several security capabilities and services to increase privacy and control network access. These include:
- Network firewalls built into Amazon VPC, and web application firewall capabilities in AWS WAF let you create private networks, and control access to your instances and applications
- Encryption in transit with TLS across all services
- Connectivity options that enable private, or dedicated, connections from your office or on-premises environment.
AWS data centres are housed in nondescript facilities. Physical access is strictly controlled both at the perimeter and at building ingress points by professional security staff utilizing video surveillance, intrusion detection systems, and other electronic means. Authorised staff must pass two-factor authentication a minimum of two times to access data centre floors. All visitors and contractors are required to present identification and are signed in and continually escorted by authorised staff. JIIG-CAL staff do not have physical access to AWS facilities.
