Use AWS Config the Right Way for Successful Compliance

It’s well-known that AWS Config is a powerful service for monitoring all changes across your resources. As AWS Config has constantly evolved and improved over the years, it has transformed into a true powerhouse for monitoring your deployment’s compliance. Monitoring for compliance — whether for HIPAA, CIS, internal auditors, etc. — is a detailed and complicated process, and it’s of utmost importance to provide a clear history of all actions so that auditors can easily assess and approve your organization. With that in mind, let’s check out the following three best practices to use AWS Config for Compliance.

Joe Nemer posted a great blog about Compliance best practices on AWS config. Read his blog article here for more info and details.
