1.2 Ensure security contact information is registered


AWS provides customers with the option of specifying the contact information for account's security team. It is recommended that this information be provided.


Specifying security-specific contact information will help ensure that security advisories sent by AWS reach the team in your organization that is best equipped to respond to them.

NOTE: Nessus has not performed this check. Please review the benchmark to ensure target compliance.


Perform the following to establish security contact information:
From Console:

Click on your account name at the top right corner of the console.

From the drop-down menu Click My Account

Scroll down to the Alternate Contacts section

Enter contact information in the Security section

Note: Consider specifying an internal email distribution list to ensure emails are regularly monitored by more than one individual.
