What is Governance360?
As enterprises speed up the adoption of AWS Cloud, there is a compelling need to balance agility with security governance. It has become a top priority of the CIO, CISO, and IT Director of any enterprise, regardless of the size. AWS offers a 1-Click provisioning model for assets across business units, global regions, and product teams. Enterprises need to carefully consider the factors around Identity & Access Management, Security & Compliance, and Budget & Cost management. Without proper governance & controls, enterprises are exposed to the risk of assets, data, and critical information that can have catastrophic consequences in the longer run.
To help enterprises implement global best practices, AWS offers a comprehensive set of control services such as AWS Control Tower, AWS Security Hub, AWS Budget & Cost management. However, enterprises often do not implement these services the right way and will need a specialized partner. Relevance Lab’s Governance360, aligned with AWS Management and Governance (M&G) Lens frameworks and compliant to industry standards such as HIPAA, CIS, NIST, etc, ensures proper implementation of these best practices.
Relevance Lab’s partnership with AWS enables cloud adoption in a frictionless, automated, and cost-effective manner. By bringing together a unique combination of consulting approach, deep expertise, complementary tools for automation, and pre-built solutions, we can help the enterprises to achieve security and governance maturity for their AWS cloud operating environment.
Governance360, anchored by AWS M&G Lens, is a best practice implementation model for organizations with multiple departments, BUs, etc. Relevance Lab helps the enterprises to adopt M&G lens through their Governance360 with 3 stages – Leverage, Augment and Instill.

Why should the enterprises focus on this?
To achieve agility, compliance, and security, enterprises cannot rely on manual processes, and hence, automation plays a key role. It calls for an integrated framework referred to as “Governance360” – built on AWS Management and Governance Lens, which focuses on Account Management, Network and Infrastructure, Security, Compliance Automation, Budget, and Cost Management. This model helps clients to fast-track their business objectives while ensuring their workloads and cloud environments meet security and compliance requirements.
Key Benefits of Governance360 solution.
  • Transition from a “reactive” to a “proactive” approach

  • Achieve higher levels along a maturity model curve with incremental benefits

  • Reduce internal IT and Security team efforts by 30-50% with prebuilt solution and automation

  • Faster detection & resolution of issues by 50%

  • Cost savings of up-to 60% (typically $100-500K on annual spends) covering human and asset costs

How to get started?
Governance360 implementation requires streamlining account management across multiple AWS accounts & workloads through centralization, standardization, and automation. The following aspects contribute to this objective:
Level Details What is Covered Benefits What is Missing
1 Basic Governance
  • Deployment of AWS Control Tower
  • Automated & Standardized account provisioning
  • Get better control of the AWS Environments
  • Govern your workloads more easily and drive the innovation
  • Cost and Budget Management
  • Manual Setup Model that applies the Config. rules, service control policies Integration with ITSM Cost Optimization
    2 Advanced Governance
  • Use Customization of Control Tower using CI/CD Pipeline Best Practices
  • Rich library of the Automation Templates for Infra Automation
  • Get extended compliance to AWS Foundation and CIS Top-20
  • Cost Optimization Techniques - Instance Scheduler, Compute Optimizer, AWS Workspaces Cost Optimizer, Cost monitor lambda functions
  • Activate the AWS Service Catalog, AWS Service Management Connector
  • Ease of deployment of security controls @ Scale using CI/CD pipeline
  • Dashboard for the Asset Management
  • Dashboard of the AWS Config Aggregator
  • No integration with Security monitoring of resources and accounts - Static or Dynamic. Proactive Monitoring of the Health Assets is missing.
    3 Proactive & Preventive Governance
  • Use the ITSM/Custom Cloud Portal to look at the compliance status across your multi-account cloud Infrastructure
  • Get a single pane of glass view for your multi-account cloud assets
  • Enable SSM to run periodic vulnerability assessments on your resources
  • Dashboard of the Security Hub
  • Dashboard of Proactive Health Monitoring
  • Granular policies for Account and Resource level control are missing. Continuous Compliance and Remediation are missing. Vulnerability and Patch Management fix is missing. Industry-Specific extensions for specialized compliances - HITRUST, HIPAA, GRC, GDPR, etc.
    4 Intelligent Compliance with Remediations
  • Continuous monitoring, detection, and auto-remediations are achieved as scale
  • Ability to learn from the previous incidents and increase coverage & compliance
  • Enterprise-grade Automation covering the full lifecycle of cloud resources, system changes, and people interactions
  • Baseline the requirements for the industry-specific compliance needs like HITRUST, HIPAA, GDPR, SOC2, etc
  • Deploy the Quick Starts for these specific standards
  • Continuous Compliance Dashboard - Custodian + Security Hub
  • Dashboard of Vulnerability - Compliance Status
  • Command Centre Dashboards
  • Summary
    Clients are often faced with a situation where their AWS environments have started and grown without an underlying starting well-architected framework. Account proliferation without standardization poses significant security risks and high costs. Often, they also rely on traditional IT management processes, which are manual and not scalable. In some cases, clients rely on third-party tools or solutions without due consideration, which can further complicate and increase operational challenges.
    With Governance360, clients can improve the security and governance of their AWS environments and fast-track their business objectives. Relevance Lab can help organizations build or migrate existing accounts to a secure, compliant, and multi-account AWS environment. By enabling automation, we ensure an increase in both operational and cost-efficiency. This transition can be made frictionless using our specialized competencies, RLCatalyst automation framework, and the AWS Management and Governance Lens Framework.
