Control: 14 Amazon Aurora clusters should have backtracking enabled

Description

This control checks whether Amazon Aurora clusters have backtracking enabled.

Backups help you to recover more quickly from a security incident. They also strengthens the resilience of your systems. Aurora backtracking reduces the time to recover a database to a point in time. It does not require a database restore to do so.

Remediation

For detailed instructions to enable Aurora backtracking, see Configuring backtrack with the console when modifying a DB cluster.
