New AWS workbook for New Zealand economic services customers

We are very happy to announce a fresh AWS workbook made to help New Zealand financial providers clients align with the Reserve Financial institution of New Zealand (RBNZ) Help with Cyber Resilience .

The RBNZ Help with Cyber Resilience sets out the RBNZ expectations because of its regulated entities regarding cyber resilience, and aims to improve awareness and promote the cyber resilience of the financial sector, at table and senior management degree especially. The guidance pertains to all entities regulated by the RBNZ, including authorized banks, licensed non-bank down payment takers, certified insurers, and specified financial marketplace infrastructures.


As the RBNZ describes its guidance as “a couple of recommendations instead of requirements” that are not legally enforceable, in addition, it declares that it expects regulated entities to “proactively consider how their current method of cyber risk administration lines up with the suggestions in [the] guidance to check out [opportunities] for improvement as soon as possible.”

Compliance and security is really a shared obligation between AWS and the client. This differentiation of responsibility is known as the &lt commonly;a href=”https://aws.amazon.com/compliance/shared-responsibility-design/” target=”_blank” rel=”noopener noreferrer”>AWS Shared Obligation Model, where AWS is in charge of protection of the cloud, and the client is in charge of their safety within the cloud. The brand new AWS Reserve Financial institution of New Zealand Help with Cyber Resilience (RBNZ-GCR) Workbook helps clients align with the RBNZ Help with Cyber Resilience by giving manage mappings for the next:

  • Security within the cloud by mapping RBNZ Help with Cyber Resilience methods to the five pillars of the AWS Well-Architected Framework.
  • Protection of the cloud by mapping RBNZ Help with Cyber Resilience procedures to regulate statements from the AWS Compliance Plan.

The downloadable AWS RBNZ-GCR Workbook contains two embedded formats:

  • Microsoft Excel – Insurance coverage includes AWS responsibility control statements and Well-Architected Framework guidelines.
  • Powerful HTML – Coverage is equivalent to within the Microsoft Excel format, with the added feature that the Well-Architected Framework guidelines are mapped to AWS Config managed &lt and rules;a href=”https://aws.amazon.com/guardduty/” focus on=”_blank” rel=”noopener noreferrer”>Amazon GuardDuty results, where applicable or available.

The AWS RBNZ-GCR Workbook can be acquired for download in AWS Artifact, a self-services portal for on-demand usage of AWS compliance reports. Register to AWS Artifact within the AWS Management Gaming console, or find out more at Getting started off with AWS Artifact.
