Monitoring: Amazon Macie

Amazon Macie is a new service that helps you discover sensitive data in Amazon S3 buckets and take action to protect your organization’s assets. Amazon Macie can detect types of sensitive information in S3 buckets, including personally identifiable information (PII), financial and regulatory compliance-related data, personally identifiable information from customers, employees, or partners, payment information, and more. You can use Amazon Macie to manually initiate searches on your own or automatically have sensitive data found in your buckets – this way, you can ensure your company maintains a robust security posture while avoiding many false positives by letting the machine do the heavy lifting.

Why should you monitor Amazon Macie findings?

Macie continuously scans S3 buckets for sensitive data and security risks caused by misconfiguration. Therefore, keeping track of the findings recorded by Macie is crucial to ensure data security.
