Managing Amazon GuardDuty Security Findings Across Multiple Accounts

2021-05-04T08:41:17+00:00

In our previous article, we discussed how GuardDuty can help organizations monitor their workloads and  AWS accounts from malicious activities and how to monitor findings with Amazon CloudWatch Events. Imagine that your organization has multiple AWS accounts for different workloads, teams, and projects. With every account, you need to monitor GuardDuty findings individually. It will be quite difficult for your security team to monitor these findings with their constant switching between AWS accounts.  Amazon GuardDuty supports the consolidation of these findings to one AWS account. For example, your organization has 10 AWS accounts. All you have to do is to [...]

Bookmarks AWS Systems Manager Parameter Store AWS Secrets Manager Similarities and Differences Managing the security of your applications is an integral part of any organization especially for infrastructures deployed in the cloud. One aspect of application security is how the parameters such as environment variables, database passwords, API keys, product keys, etc. are stored and retrieved. As a best practice, secret information should not be stored in plain text and not be embedded inside your source code. It is also recommended to set up an automated system to rotate passwords or keys regularly (which [...]

Global Secondary Index vs Local Secondary Index

2021-05-06T09:40:09+00:00

Bookmarks Global Secondary Index Local Secondary Index A secondary index is a data structure that contains a subset of attributes from a table, along with an alternate key to support Query operations. An Amazon DynamoDB table can have multiple secondary indexes. Global Secondary Index Read/Write Capacity Calculation (Provisioned Throughput Mode) Eventually consistent reads consume ½ read capacity unit. Therefore, each query can retrieve up to 8KB of data per capacity unit (4KB x 2). The maximum size of the results returned by a Query operation is 1 MB. The total provisioned throughput cost for a [...]

AWS Global Accelerator vs Amazon CloudFront

2021-05-03T13:33:57+00:00

In this day and age, your site speed performance is an important factor when it comes to user experience. It is widely recommended for websites to have an average load time of 3 seconds as users tend to abandon the site if a page takes longer than 3 seconds to load. According to Amazon, just 100 milliseconds of extra load time cost them 1% in sales. Indeed, every second counts in our fast-paced digital world. Amazon Web Services has always been the global leader in Cloud Computing with its speed, performance, and reliability. With its breadth of services, AWS gives [...]

Amazon Web Services, with its ever-growing breadth of services, offers a fully-managed version control system where developers can privately store their application source code like Github or Bitbucket. CodeCommit can be used as a staging ground coupled with CodeDeploy and CodePipeline to seamlessly deploy code to Amazon EC2 instances.  In this article, I will discuss how we can leverage Amazon SNS to send notifications whenever there are events in our repository. This is particularly useful when we need to keep our work colleagues up-to-date if there are events in our repository. Triggers are used for two things. The first is [...]
