No, Amazon Redshift snapshots are encrypted together with the data at the same time your Amazon Redshift cluster is encrypted. However, you can encrypt a previously unencrypted cluster, but only the subsequent snapshots will be encrypted.

For more information, see [Encrypt your previously unencrypted Amazon Redshift cluster with 1-click] ( Also, Amazon Redshift database encryption in the Redshift cluster management guide.
