You will only receive alerts for new security findings

Any existing Security Hub findings are viewable in AWS Security Hub. We recommend checking the AWS Security Hub dashboard for any existing alerts and remediating those findings.

Alongside this change, we wish to emphasize the importance of regularly reviewing your security alerts in the AWS Security Hub and the AWS Guard Duty Consoles. 

Regular review will help ensure you are aware of any potential security risks, allowing for quicker detection and resolution of issues. Review best practices for AWS Security Hub alerting in this KB article .

If you believe an alert has resulted in a security incident, please also reach out to the CSOC. Reporting an incident to the Office of Cybersecurity - UW–Madison Information Technology.
