Continuous Compliance and Automated Incident Response with AWS CodePipeline and AWS Config

AWS Config is a service that enables you to assess, audit, and evaluate the configurations of your AWS resources. Config continuously monitors and records your AWS resource configurations and allows you to automate the evaluation of recorded configurations against desired configurations. In this hands-on lab, we will leverage AWS Config to monitor resources deployed from our AWS CodePipeline to ensure they meet our company's compliance standards. If AWS Config finds any violations, it will notify us by email through Amazon Simple Notification Service.
