Control: 1.20 Ensure that S3 Buckets are configured with 'Block public access (bucket settings)'

Description

Amazon S3 provides Block public access (bucket settings) and Block public access (account settings) to help you manage public access to Amazon S3 resources. By default, S3 buckets and objects are created with public access disabled. However with an IAM principle with sufficient S3 permissions can enable public access at the bucket and/or object level.

While enabled, Block public access (bucket settings) prevents an individual bucket and its objects, from becoming publicly accessible. Similarly, Block public access (account settings) prevents all buckets and it's objects in an account, from becoming publicly accessible.

Amazon S3 Block public access (bucket settings) prevents the accidental or malicious public exposure of data contained within the respective bucket(s).

Amazon S3 Block public access (account settings) prevents the accidental or malicious public exposure of data contained within all buckets of the respective AWS account.

Whether blocking public access to all or some buckets is an organizational decision that should be based on data sensitivity, least privilege, and use case.

When you apply Block Public Access settings to an account, the settings apply to all AWS Regions globally. The settings might not take effect in all Regions immediately or simultaneously, but they eventually propagate to all Regions.
