The Australian Signals Directorate (ASD) Information Security Manual (ISM) has hundreds of controls for achieving PROTECTED level compliance. Configuring a self-managed environment in accordance with these controls can be a significant effort. MongoDB Atlas has strived to take the maximum burden of these requirements so customers can focus on application development and business requirements. Specifically, customers are only responsible for configuring a small subset of the total ISM controls to minimise effort.
This whitepaper is to provide details and technical references demonstrating how MongoDB customers, such as Australian Government Organisations and ISVs, can use MongoDB Atlas to comply with PROTECTED information classification level requirements.
