You can also use the feature to enable protection for the newly supported resource types in your existing backup plans. The set of resource types that will be protected by Amazon Backup plans within the specified AWS account and region must be configured in the conformity rule settings, on the Trend Micro Cloud One™ – Conformity account console.
