Amazon Releases First Report on Government Requests

Amazon for the first time has released a report on the number of government data requests it receives, offering the public more information on how often it hands over its customers' data to judges and law enforcement agencies. The e-commerce company, which runs the largest public cloud-infrastructure business in the world, hadn't previously released a biannual transparency report, despite repeated criticism from the American Civil Liberties Union and the digital rights advocacy group the Electronic Frontier Foundation.
