Implementing Amazon GuardDuty and Amazon EventBridge

Globomantics is a global healthcare organization who have recently moved their key systems to AWS. Recently, they have become concerned about how difficult it is to manually keep track of security threats and best practices. You have been tasked to implement a solution that will: • Automatically monitor for security threats targeted against their AWS accounts and deployed resources • Provide notification when security threats are seen Having considered several options, you have decided to recommend that Globomantics implement Amazon GuardDuty. In this lab, you will: 1. Create an SNS topic with an email subscriber. 2. Enable Amazon GuardDuty. 3. Create an Amazon EventBridge rule with the SNS topic as the target.
