Redshift clusters have automatic snapshots disable or retention period less than 7 days

Description

An Amazon Redshift cluster consists of nodes. Each cluster has a leader node and one or more compute nodes. The leader node receives queries from client applications, parses the queries, and develops query execution plans. The leader node coordinates the parallel execution of these plans with the compute nodes and aggregates the intermediate results from these nodes. It then finally returns the results back to the client applications. It was detected that the Redshift cluster {AwsRedshiftCluster} has automatic snapshots disable or retention period less than 7 days. Backups help you to recover more quickly from a security incident. They strengthen the resilience of your systems. Amazon Redshift takes periodic snapshots by default.
