  • Custom frameworks can also be shared with another AWS account or replicated into another AWS Region under your own account.

  • Supports control set delegation to team members to assist you in reviewing related evidence, adding comments, and updating the status of each control.


  • Assessments

    • An assessment is based on a framework, which is a collection of controls.

    • When you create an assessment, continuous collection of evidence begins.

    • For audit, you or a delegate can review this evidence and add it to an assessment report.

    • An assessment has two states:

      • Active – currently collecting evidence.

      • Inactive – stops collecting evidence.

  • Assessment reports

    • Summarizes the evidence that was gathered from an assessment.

    • It also includes links to evidence PDF files.

    • Assessment reports are placed in an S3 bucket.

  • Delegations

    • Allows you to delegate a control set to a subject matter expert for review and validation of evidence.

    • In different AWS Regions, an account can be:

      • Audit owner

      • Delegate

    • Delegates are asked by audit owners to review the evidence associated with a control set.

  • Framework library

    • Defines the controls and data source mappings for a given compliance standard or regulation

      • Standard Frameworks – prebuilt AWS frameworks

      • Custom Frameworks – frameworks that you own.

    • By creating a share request, a recipient can use your custom framework to create assessments.

  • Control library
