4. You will then see the Security Hub page. 

AWS Security Hub should already be connected for the AWS account where Dash ComplyOps is installed. You can also connect other AWS accounts via AWS Organizations.

5. Enable Security Hub for one or more regions in an account by clicking on the Settings button next to the AWS account.

For each AWS account, you can “Enable for all regions” or enable Security Hub findings for individual regions.

*Please Note: If you have connected Dash to JIRA, enabling Security Hub will automatically send all Security Hub findings as issue cards to JIRA. This may result in many cards being created, without a function for bulk removal. We will be determining further options for improving this process.

6. After enabling Security Hub for one or more regions and accounts, Dash will digest Security Hub findings and provide compliance insight across the application.

Connecting Security Hub From Other AWS Accounts

In order to connect Dash to instances of Security Hub in other AWS account(s), your team can connect accounts connected via AWS Organizations.

To connect an instance of Security Hub from another AWS account, your team can follow the instructions for connecting other AWS accounts

1. You can discover all AWS Organizations connected by refreshing the AWS environments.

Navigate to Settings > Monitoring Settings > click on the “Refresh AWS Environments” button.
