Here are the top 10 AWS security controls:
- IAM (Identity and Access Management) - IAM provides a centralized console for managing user access to AWS resources. You can use IAM to create users, groups, and roles, and to assign permissions to those users, groups, and roles.
- CloudTrail - CloudTrail provides a log of all API calls made to your AWS account. This can be used to track changes to your resources, and to identify potential security issues.
- Amazon GuardDuty - Amazon GuardDuty is a threat detection service that uses machine learning to identify potential security threats in your AWS account.
- Security Hub - Security Hub is a centralized console for collecting and aggregating security findings from AWS services and third-party tools. This can help you to identify and address security issues in your AWS account.
- Key Management Service (KMS) - KMS provides a secure way to generate and manage encryption keys. This can help to protect your data from unauthorized access.
- Block Public Access - Block Public Access helps to prevent unauthorized access to your AWS resources. You can use Block Public Access to block access to specific resources, or to entire regions or accounts.
- Network Access Control Lists (ACLs) - Network ACLs provide a way to control network traffic to and from your AWS resources. You can use Network ACLs to block or allow traffic from specific IP addresses or ranges.
- Security Groups - Security Groups provide a way to control network traffic to and from your EC2 instances. You can use Security Groups to block or allow traffic from specific ports or protocols.
- Infrastructure as Code (IaC) - IaC is a way to automate the deployment and configuration of your AWS resources. This can help to improve the security of your AWS environment by making it easier to track changes and to roll back changes if necessary.
- Continuous Monitoring - Continuous monitoring is the practice of continuously monitoring your AWS environment for security threats. This can be done using a variety of tools and services, including AWS Security Hub, Amazon GuardDuty, and AWS CloudTrail.
These are just a few of the many AWS security controls that are available. You should choose the controls that are most appropriate for your specific needs.
