AWS RDS Instance Snapshots Are Not Publicly Accessible

Risk

Remediation Effort

Critical

Low

This policy validates that no RDS Instance snapshots are publicly restorable. A publicly restorable RDS Instance snapshot means that anyone with an AWS account can access the contents of that snapshot.

Remediation

To remediate this delete all publicly accessible RDS Instance snapshots. Alternatively, modify the restore attribute on the snapshot to not include the value all.
