Standardized Architecture for UK-OFFICIAL in the AWS Cloud: Quick Start Reference Deployment
The Quick Start builds an AWS environment that aligns with the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) Cloud Security Principles and the Center for Internet Security (CIS) Critical Security Controls, which are primary considerations for UK-OFFICIAL compliance.
AWS CloudFormation templates automate the deployment and can be customized to build a repeatable, auditable reference architecture that meets your specific needs. The Quick Start includes a deployment guide that describes the architecture in detail and provides step-by-step instructions for deploying, configuring, and validating the AWS environment.
The Quick Start also provides a security controls matrix that maps the architecture decisions, components, and configuration in the Quick Start to security requirements within the NCSC publication; indicates which AWS CloudFormation templates and stacks affect the controls implementation; and specifies the associated AWS resources within the templates and stacks.
