Amazon Data Processing Addendum for the Global

It is not easy to navigate data protection laws all over the world. Regardless of which data protection laws apply to that processing, I’m’m happy to announce today that AWS is broadening the reach of the global data processing addendum( AWS Data Processing DPA ) so that it applies everywhere whenever customers use AWS services to process personal data. To assist you in meeting your compliance requirements for information protection, AWS is pleased to be the first significant cloud provider to follow this global strategy.

 <p>The Global AWS DPA is designed to help you satisfy requirements under data protection laws worldwide, without having to create separate country-specific data processing agreements for every location where you use AWS services. By introducing this global, one-stop addendum, we are simplifying contracting procedures and helping to reduce the time that you spend assessing contractual data privacy requirements on a country-by-country basis.</p> <p>If you have signed a copy of the previous AWS General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) DPA, then you do not need to take any action and can continue to rely on that addendum to satisfy data processing requirements. AWS is always innovating to help you meet your compliance obligations wherever you operate. We’re confident that this expanded Global AWS DPA will help you on your journey.
