AWS Security Hub launches 19 new security controls



[AWS Security Hub]( has released 19 new security controls, increasing the number of controls offered to 292\. With these new controls, Security Hub now supports four additional AWS services: Amazon EventBridge, Amazon Managed Streaming for Apache Kafka (MSK), Amazon MQ, and Amazon Route 53\. Security Hub also released new controls against eight previously supported services including Amazon Elastic Container Service (ECS) and Amazon Relational Database Service (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, 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 haven’t done so already. If you are already using these standards and have Security Hub configured to automatically enable new controls, these new controls will run without taking 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 the AWS API or 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.
