How secure is the World Bank Cloud?

June 7, 2017

The World Bank Cloud is doubly secure. First, by relying on Amazon AWS, it provides best-in-class protections for even the most security-sensitive organizations and their data. External certifying bodies and independent security auditors have awarded Amazon AWS the long list of security accreditations listed below. Please visit AWS compliance resource page for more information.

Second, on top of Amazon AWS’ security protocols, the World Bank provides an additional layer of protection through its own additional security measures. Because its own data resides on its Cloud, the World Bank provides its Cloud the highest level of protection.
