Step 2: Create a security group to use in your policy

In this step, you create a security group that you could apply across your organization using Firewall Manager.

Note

For this tutorial, you won't apply your security group policy to the resources in your organization. You'll just create the policy and see what would happen if you applied the policy's security group to your resources. You do this by disabling automatic remediation on the policy.
