As we step further into the digital age, the importance of data security becomes increasingly apparent. Our interactions, transactions, and even our identities are frequently translated into data, which is stored, transferred, and processed in the digital realm. When this data falls into the wrong hands, the consequences can be disastrous, both for individuals and for organizations.
Amazon S3, a popular storage solution offered by Amazon Web Services (AWS), serves as a repository for a vast amount of this data. With its robust scalability and ease of use, it has become a favored choice for many organizations. But as with all data storage services, it’s crucial to ensure that the data stored on Amazon S3 is secure, particularly when it’s ‘at rest’—that is, not actively being used or transferred.
