Amazon Macie now offers a new dashboard making it easier for you to identify Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) buckets accessible to the Internet as well as Amazon S3 objects with overly permissive access permissions. 

To access the new Macie dashboard, go to the Macie console, select the Dashboard tab, and navigate to the “S3 public objects by buckets” dashboard. You will be presented with a summary of how many S3 objects are publicly accessible and the buckets in which they are stored. For further investigation and remediation options, you can choose to get a list of the public objects per bucket by navigating to the Research tab.

Amazon Macie is a security service that automatically discovers, classifies, and protects sensitive data in AWS. The service continuously monitors data access activity for anomalies and alerts when private data is made publicly accessible.

Amazon Macie is currently available in US East (N. Virginia) and US West (Oregon). To learn more, please visit the Amazon Macie product page
