AWS Security Hub has launched a new security standard: AWS Foundational Security Best Practices v1.0.0. The initial release of this standard consists of 31 fully automated security controls in 12 Regions and 27 controls in AWS GovCloud (West) Region. 7 additional regions will be launched shortly. These security controls detect when AWS accounts and deployed resources do not align with security best practices defined by AWS security experts. This curated set of controls helps improve a customer’s security posture in AWS and covers AWS’s most popular and foundational services. When a deviation from an AWS security best practice is identified, AWS Security Hub issues a detailed and actionable finding to customers. These controls closely align to the Top 10 Security Best Practices outlined by AWS Chief Information Security Office, Stephen Schmidt, at AWS re:Invent 2019. We recommend that you enable AWS Security Hub and this standard in all accounts and Regions where you have activity.
