Amazon Web Services (AWS) provides a robust and scalable cloud computing platform that is widely adopted by organizations. However, with the increasing reliance on AWS services, ensuring proper security measures is crucial to protect sensitive data and maintain the integrity of cloud environments. In this article, we will demystify AWS security and discuss key considerations to establish a secure cloud environment on AWS. Before we dive into the eight points, let’s quickly discuss an interesting case study that will make what we will discuss later in this article more pertinent. 

Case Study: Capital One Data Breach

In 2019, Capital One experienced a significant data breach that exposed sensitive customer information. The breach affected approximately 100 million individuals in the United States and approximately 6 million in Canada, with a hacker illicitly accessing a total of about 140,000 Social Security numbers and approximately 80,000 linked bank account numbers of secured credit card customers.
