Microsoft is an industry leader in establishing and consistently meeting specific security and privacy requirements. Azure complies with a wide range of international and industry-specific compliance standards such as ISO 27001, HIPAA, FedRAMP, SOC 1 and SOC 2, as well as country-specific standards such as Australia’s IRAP standard, the UK’s G-Cloud standard, and Singapore’s MTCS standard. Third-party audits, such as those conducted by the British Standards Institute, verify that Azure adheres to the strict security controls required by these standards.
