Severity: LOW

AWS MQBroker is not encrypted by Key Management Service (KMS) using a Customer Managed Key (CMK)

Description

This policy identifies MQBrokers which are encrypted with default KMS keys and not with Keys managed by Customer. It is a best practice to use customer managed KMS Keys to encrypt your MQBroker data. It gives you full control over the encrypted data.
