AWS Trusted Advisor Now Checks for Public Snapshots of Amazon Elastic Block Store (EBS) and Amazon Relational Database Service (RDS) Data

Posted on: Jun 9, 2017

AWS Trusted Advisor now helps you better secure your data by alerting you whenever it detects a public snapshot of your Amazon EBS or Amazon RDS data.

For example, if an Amazon EBS volume snapshot is made public, AWS Trusted Advisor will identify that public snapshot and provide you with an alert so that you can investigate whether it was done intentionally.

These new checks are available to all AWS customers at no additional charge. Business and Enterprise support customers can use these new checks to enable automated actions via Trusted Advisor's integration with CloudWatch Events.
