Disabling Security Hub - AWS Security Hub

Disabling Security Hub

To disable AWS Security Hub, you can use the Security Hub console or the Security Hub API.

You cannot disable Security Hub in the following cases:

  • Your account is the designated Security Hub administrator account for an organization.

  • Your account is a Security Hub administrator account by invitation, and you have member accounts that are enabled. Before you can disable Security Hub, you must disassociate all of your member accounts. See Disassociating member accounts.

  • Your account is a member account. Before you can disable Security Hub, your account must be disassociated from your administrator account.

    For an organization account, only the administrator account can disassociate member accounts. See Disassociating member accounts from your organization.

    For manually invited accounts, either the administrator account or the member account can disassociate the member account. See Disassociating member accounts or Disassociating from your administrator account.

When you disable Security Hub for an account, it is disabled only in the current Region. No new findings are processed for the account in that Region.

The following also occurs.

  • After 90 days, your existing findings and insights and any Security Hub configuration settings are deleted and cannot be recovered.

    If you want to save your existing findings, you must export them before you disable Security Hub. For more information, see Effect of account actions on Security Hub data.

  • Any enabled standards are disabled.
