AWS Security Hub has released 14 new automated security controls for the AWS Foundational Security Best Practices standard related to AWS EC2 (EC2.7 and EC2.8), Amazon EMR (EMR.1), AWS KMS (KMS.1 and KMS.2), Amazon RDS (RDS.4, RDS.5, RDS.6, RDS.7, and RDS.8), Amazon S3 (S3.6), and AWS Secrets Manager (SecretsManager.1 and SecretsManager.2). Security Hub now supports 90 security controls to automatically check your security posture in AWS.  

Available globally, AWS Security Hub gives you a comprehensive view of your security posture across your AWS accounts. With Security Hub, you now have a single place that aggregates, organizes, and prioritizes your security alerts, or findings, from multiple AWS services, such as Amazon GuardDuty, Amazon Inspector, Amazon Macie, AWS Firewall Manager, and AWS IAM Access Analyzer, as well as from over 45 AWS Partner solutions. You can also continuously monitor your environment using automated security checks based on standards, such as AWS Foundational Security Best Practices, the CIS AWS Foundations Benchmark, and the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard. You can also take action on these findings by investigating findings in Amazon Detective and by using Amazon CloudWatch Event rules to send the findings to ticketing, chat, Security Information and Event Management (SIEM), Security Orchestration Automation and Response (SOAR), and incident management tools or to custom remediation playbooks.  

You can enable your 30-day free trial of AWS Security Hub with a single-click in the AWS Management console. Please see the AWS Regions page for all the regions where AWS Security Hub is available.
