AWS

I have two separate cloud instances in AWS. One is shared among customers and one is dedicated to individual customers. I don't have all security controls enabled on the shared instance yet. When I go in for ISO Certification, can I exclude the shared instance from my scope and certify the dedicated environment only.

Please note that the ISMS scope can cover all organizations, or only specific locations, processes, or information.

Considering that, it is not possible to define the ISMS scope in terms of cloud instances in AWS. What you can do is to define specific processes or information that are related to the environment dedicated to individual customers (e.g., customer service support).

The main point when considering this approach is the effort required to keep the ISMS scope separated from the rest of the organization's elements (for small and mid-sized organizations many times the effort is not worthy, and it is better to include all the organization in the ISMS scope).

These materials will provide you a further explanation about scope definition:
