AWS Security Hub launches 12 new security controls



[AWS Security Hub]( has released 12 new security controls, increasing the overall number of controls Security Hub offers to 276\. With these new controls, Security Hub now supports three additional AWS services: Amazon Athena, Amazon DocumentDB (with MongoDB compatibility), and Amazon Neptune. Security Hub has also added an additional control against Amazon Relational Database Service (Amazon RDS). For the full list of recently-released controls and the AWS Regions in which they are available, visit the [Security Hub user guide]( To use the new controls, you should first turn on the standard they belong to—either the [Foundational Security Best Practices (FSBP)]( or [National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) SP 800-53 Rev. 5]( If you are already using those standards and have Security Hub set to automatically enable new controls, these new controls will run without having to take any additional action. You can [try Security Hub at no cost for 30 days]( on the AWS Free Tier with a single action in the AWS Management Console or after provisioning it via AWS CloudFormation. To learn more about Security Hub capabilities, consult the Security Hub [documentation](, and to receive notifications about new Security Hub features and controls, subscribe to the [Security Hub SNS topic]( in your preferred Region.
