RDS database instance is not deployed in a VPC

Risk Level

Informational (4)



A Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) is a virtual network that is logically isolated from other virtual networks in the AWS Cloud. We detected that RDS instance {AwsRdsDbInstance} is not deployed in a VPC. RDS database instances should be deployed in a VPC in order to take advantage of network controls it supplies to restrict access to them, such as network ACLs and security groups.
