Whitepaper presented in this section (Security processes) does not exist anymore

 Does anyone know which documents in AWS Security documentation should we go through, as there are over 50 different links to documents? Whitepaper presented in this section (AWS Security processes) does not exist anymore, and AWS refers to AWS Security documentation.

I’m currently working my way through this whitepaper link if that helps: https://docs.aws.amazon.com/whitepapers/latest/introduction-aws-security/welcome.html?did=wp_card&trk=wp_card

LOVE that link!

This security paper from June 2016 (!) has been superseded by several others. This lecture reveals a UI and organization of security information on the AWS web site that is also completely out of date. I have also found what looks like a more recent version of this white paper "Amazon Web Services: Overview of Security Processes" that is dated March 2020, but is watermarked as "archived" and says "For the latest technical content on Security and Compliance, see [https://aws.amazon.com/architecture/security-identity-compliance/"].
