If you have multiple resources in your AWS environment then AWS Config can provide you with audit, governance, and comparison of any changes to your resource configuration over time. You can create alerts to be notified via AWS SNS if any configuration changes, which is very useful for development teams. Governance in an organization, like “Who made the change?”, “From what IP address?” is a very useful audit and operational governance tool.
