 <p>ISMAP is a Japanese government program for assessing the security of public cloud services. The purpose of ISMAP is to provide a common set of security standards for cloud service providers (CSPs) to comply with as a baseline requirement for government procurement. ISMAP introduces security requirements for cloud domains, practices, and procedures that CSPs must implement. CSPs must engage with an ISMAP-approved third-party assessor to assess compliance with the ISMAP security requirements in order to apply as an ISMAP-registered CSP. ISMAP evaluates the security of each CSP and registers those that satisfy the Japanese government’s security requirements. Upon successful ISMAP registration of CSPs, government procurement departments and agencies can accelerate their engagement with the registered CSPs and contribute to the smooth introduction of cloud services in government information systems.</p> <p>The achievement of this authorization demonstrates the proactive approach that AWS has taken to help customers meet compliance requirements set by the Japanese government and to deliver secure AWS services to our customers. Service providers and customers of AWS can use the ISMAP authorization of AWS services to support their own ISMAP authorization programs. The full list of 157 ISMAP-authorized AWS services is available on the <a href="https://aws.amazon.com/compliance/services-in-scope/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">AWS Services in Scope by Compliance Program</a> webpage, and customers can also access the <a href="https://us-east-1.console.aws.amazon.com/artifact/reports?reportArn=arn%3Aaws%3Aartifact%3A%3A%3Areport-package%2FCertifications%20and%20Attestations%2FISMAP%2FISMAP%20Customer%20Package%20-%20English" target="_blank" rel="noopener">ISMAP Customer Package</a> on <a href="https://aws.amazon.com/jp/artifact/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">AWS Artifact</a>.
