AWS follows the shared responsibility model. In short AWS responsibility “Security of the Cloud” and Customer responsibility “Security in the Cloud”. In the cases where you store data in RDS and S3, the customer takes full responsibility for encryption. However both RDS and S3 provides you nesasary tools to encrypt the data at rest.
