Summary - AWS Security Incident Response Guide


With detection, it’s important to have a mix of rule-based and behavioral driven alerting. Additionally, you should have mechanisms in place for people both internally and externally to submit a ticket about a security issue. Humans can be one of the most valuable sources for security events, so it’s important to have processes in place for people to escalate concerns. You should use threat models of your environment to get started with building detections. Threat models will help you build alerts based on threats that are most relevant to your environment. Lastly, you should use frameworks such as MITRE ATT&CK to understand threat actor tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTPs). The MITRE ATT&CK framework can be helpful to use as a common language across your various detection mechanisms.
