Investigate most Amazon GuardDuty findings

Investigate most Amazon GuardDuty Findings

A key task among foundational detective controls is to review most Amazon GuardDuty findings. In other words, not only take action on critical finding, but also evaluate why medium or low priority findings are being generated, to detect early attempts of compromise, and quickly block the adversary and activate the incident response plan.

For example, when you detect SSH Bruteforce , it indicates that an adversary is trying to access your exposed SSH services, even if the adversary was unable to enter yet, it is an alarm sign that should direct us towards evaluating alternatives to close that attack vector, such as the use of AWS Systems Manager Fleet Manager

Review reconnaissance findings to identify attacks as they attempt to expand laterally, pentesting tools, and anomalies.
