Incident Response in AWS Config - AWS Config

Incident Response in AWS Config

Security is the highest priority at AWS. As part of the AWS Cloud shared responsibility model, AWS manages a data center, network, and software architecture that meets the requirements of the most security-sensitive organizations. AWS is responsible for any incident response with respect to the AWS Config service itself. Also, as an AWS customer, you share a responsibility for maintaining security in the cloud. This means you control the security you choose to implement from the AWS tools and features you have access to, and are responsible for incident response on your side of the shared responsibility model.

By establishing a security baseline that meets the objectives for your applications running in the cloud, you're able to detect deviations that you can respond to. Since security incident response can be a complex topic, we encourage you to review the following resources so that you are better able to understand the impact that incident response (IR) and your choices have on your corporate goals: AWS Security Incident Response Guide, AWS Security Best Practices whitepaper, and the Security Perspective of the AWS Cloud Adoption Framework (CAF) white paper.
