What is Shared Responsibility?

Isn’t AWS already secure?

It’s a common misconception that your cloud provider secures your data. While some providers offer security tools, the fact is, you’re responsible for everything operating on their cloud. For AWS, this means they manage security “OF the cloud,” while customers are responsible for security “IN the cloud.”

Understanding your responsibility in the cloud is critical to getting the most from your public cloud investment.
