Compliance controls FedRAMP Moderate, PCI-DSS, and HIPAA (GA)

August 4, 2022

The compliance controls for FedRAMP Moderate, PCI-DSS, and HIPAA are now generally available. They all require use of the compliance security profile.

Add security controls with the compliance security profile (GA)

August 4, 2022

The compliance security profile is now generally available. If a Databricks workspace enables the profile, the workspace has additional monitoring, enforced instance types for inter-node encryption, a hardened compute image, and other features.

The compliance security profile includes controls that help meet certain security requirements in some compliance standards. Enabling the compliance security profile is required to use Databricks to process data that is regulated under the following compliance standards: FedRAMP Moderate, PCI-DSS, and HIPAA.

However, you can enable the compliance security profile for its enhanced security features without the need to conform to any compliance standard.

Add image hardening and monitoring agents with Enhanced Security Monitoring (GA)

August 4, 2022

Enhanced Security Monitoring provides an enhanced disk image (a CIS-hardened Ubuntu Advantage AMI) and additional security monitoring agents that generate logs that you can review.
