Using the Incident Manager replication set - Incident Manager

Using the Incident Manager replication set

The Incident Manager replication set replicates your data to many Regions to increase redundancy in case a Region is down and allow other other Regions to access your data. The replication set it also used to encrypt your data with either an AWS owned key or your own customer owned key. All Incident Manager resources are encrypted by default. To learn more about how your resources are encrypted, see Data Protection in Incident Manager. To get started with Incident Manager, first create your replication set using the Get prepared wizard. To learn more about getting prepared in Incident Manager, see the Get prepared wizard.

Deleting your replication set

Deleting the last Region in your replication set deletes the entire replication set.
