Whitepaper available: Classic intrusion analysis frameworks for AWS environments

Amazon Web Services (AWS) has released a new whitepaper, Classic intrusion analysis frameworks for AWS environments, to help organizations plan and implement a classic intrusion analysis framework for AWS environments. This whitepaper provides context that will help you understand how such frameworks are used and shows you, in detail, how to mitigate advanced attack tactics and techniques by using the AWS Cloud platform. The appendix in this paper contains a detailed example of how AWS services, features, functionality, and AWS Partner offerings can be used together to safeguard your organization’s data and cloud infrastructure by using a classic intrusion analysis framework. This will save you time and effort by providing you with a comprehensive AWS security control mapping to each phase of advanced attacks.

Finally, this paper also provides a list of some key AWS security controls, organized in an easy-to-understand format, and it includes a mapping to the AWS Cloud Adoption Framework (CAF). Even if your organization doesn’t plan to implement a classic intrusion analysis framework, this paper will be an invaluable reference to AWS security controls.
