Is there an AWS guide for the best practices on CryptoShredding or secure data deletion? Thanks!

Hi, if you're looking for AWS Practices - check out about their media destruction. Also check out for more information.

Those are high level details - there may be service-specific information on service documentation. Hope that helps!

  • Thanks! I was looking if there is specific guidance such as when my organisation needs to delete specific customer records in DynamoDB or PostgresSQL DB, what would be the recommended handling method for a secure deletion (e.g. overwriting the records prior to deletion or if possible to destroy the corresponding encryption key in KMS specific to those records only, etc.)
