Description

Log Service is a real-time data logging service that supports collection, consumption, shipping, search, and analysis of logs. It was detected that log monitoring and alarm are not set up for usage of ""root"" account. The root user is fully privileged, therefore it is recommended to avoid using it when possible. Monitoring root account logins will provide visibility into fully privileged account usage and an opportunity to reduce its use.
