Ensure your sensitive S3 buckets have object lock enabled

Ensure that your S3 buckets have object lock enabled to ensure sensitive objects are not accidentally or maliciously deleted. This is considered a security best practice and should always enabled on every bucket. Ensuring this is enabled will help with NIST,PCI-DSS, HIPPA and GDPR compliance.

Audit & Remediation



  • Select the Name hyperlink for the S3 bucket you would like to check.
  • Under Properties scroll down to Advanced settings and select Object lock. If this is set to Disabled, then you will need to open up a support ticket with AWS to have them enable this. Object lock can only be enabled via console when the bucket is being created.



  • Repeat the outlined steps for each S3 bucket that you have.
