Hiijacking of cloud services, DDos attacks, malware, side-channel attacks, DoS attacks and more - digital threats and dangers are increasing rapidly. Cloud hyperscalers provide a high level of infrastructure security, but what happens above the infrastructure layer is the responsibility of the user themselves.
When it comes to security, the principle is "shared responsibility": Amazon Web Services is responsible for protecting the infrastructure in which cloud services are run. This includes hardware, software, the network and facilities.
However, the responsibility for the security of the cloud services used lies with you and depends on the expert configuration of the services that you carry out. This includes, among other things, the management of your own data including encryption concepts, the classification of assets and sensible handling of authorizations and roles.
