Cloning and Editing a Fugue Compliance Family

You cannot add or remove rules from Fugue’s compliance families. If you want to remove certain rules from the family, use the filter or search to find the rules associated with that compliance family and create a custom family. For example, only some of the CIS AWS v1.3.0 rules apply to my organization. In filters, I select CIS AWS (v1.3.0), check the applicable rules, and click Create New Family.
