- Macie is a data security service that discovers sensitive data by using machine learning and pattern matching, provides visibility into data security risks, and enables automated protection against those risks.
- provides an inventory of the S3 buckets and automatically evaluates and monitors the buckets for security and access control.
- automates the discovery, classification, and reporting of sensitive data.
- generates a finding for you to review and remediate as necessary if it detects a potential issue with the security or privacy of the data, such as a bucket that becomes publicly accessible.
- provides multi-account support using AWS Organizations to enable Macie across all of the accounts.
- is a regional service and must be enabled on a region-by-region basis and helps view findings across all the accounts within each Region.
