AWS Shared Responsibly Model

In the cloud, security and compliance is a shared responsibility between the cloud vendor and customer. As the AWS Shared Responsibly Model states: cloud providers are responsible for security “OF” the cloud; while customers are responsible for security “IN” the cloud. GCS facilitates security design and assessment for customers “Security in the Cloud.” GCS follows Esri and native cloud vendor security best practices.
