Amazon Web Services (AWS) is pleased to announce the second issuance of the Criteria to Assess the Information Security of Cloud Services (PiTuKri) International Standard on Assurance Engagements (ISAE) 3000 Type II attestation report. The scope of the report covers a total of 154 services and 24 global AWS Regions.
The Finnish Transport and Communications Agency (Traficom) Cyber Security Centre published PiTuKri, which consists of 52 criteria that provide guidance when assessing the security of cloud service providers. The criteria are organized into the following 11 subdivisions:
- Framework conditions
- Security management
- Personnel security
- Physical security
- Communications security
- Identity and access management
- Information system security
- Operations security
- Transferability and compatibility
- Change management and system development
It is our pleasure to announce the addition of 16 new services and two new Regions to our PiTuKri attestation scope. A few examples of the new security services included are:
- AWS CloudShell – A browser-based shell that makes it simple to manage, explore, and interact with your AWS resources. With CloudShell, you can quickly run scripts with the AWS Command Line Interface (AWS CLI), experiment with AWS service APIs by using the AWS SDKs, or use a range of other tools to be productive.
- Amazon HealthLake – A HIPAA-eligible service that offers healthcare and life sciences companies a chronological view of individual or patient population health data for query and analytics at scale.
- AWS IoT SiteWise – A managed service that simplifies collecting, organizing, and analyzing industrial equipment data.

The latest report covers the period from October 1, 2021 to September 30, 2022. It was issued by an independent third-party audit firm to assure customers that the AWS control environment is appropriately designed and implemented in accordance with PiTuKri requirements. This attestation demonstrates the AWS commitment to meet security expectations for cloud service providers set by Traficom.
