    Question States:
    A financial startup company offers flexible short-term loans of up to $5000 to its users. Their online portal is hosted in AWS which uses S3 for scalable storage, DynamoDB as a NoSQL database and a fleet of EC2 instances to host their web servers. To meet the financial regulation, the company is required to undergo a compliance audit.

    In this scenario, how will you provide the auditor access to the logs of your AWS resources?

    When I read this question I was looking for responses that mention CloudWatch because you would use Cloudwatch Logs to collect logging data from multiple services, etc. However, the answer you were looking for has to do with CloudTrail.

    I think it would be clearer if the last statement said something like this:

    In this scenario, how will you provide the auditor access to the logs of changes to your AWS resources?

    Thanks Rob,

    Me also had the same thoughts in the beginning. Then I came to know that is how they ask questions in the exams, we should be very careful in understanding the real meaning.

    Anything on Audit it should be CloudTrail, whether in question they mention the term “logs” with the intention of diverting the attention towards “cloudwatch”

    Hello Arkadiy,

    Thank you for sharing your thoughts on this item.

    Take note that there are questions in the actual AWS exam that are difficult, tricky, and ambiguous. You have to be prepared to look for specific keywords or key phrases in order to find the most suitable answer. This is the style that we are trying to mimic in our practice tests. Some of the questions do not explicitly show the obvious keywords or phrases that will easily point to the answer.

    The question mentioned the word “compliance audit”. I think that is sufficient to answer the question given the options provided.

    Let us know if you need further assistance. The Tutorials Dojo team is dedicated in helping you pass your AWS exam on your first try!
