An AWS Network Address Translation (NAT) Gateway has low utlization. This may be an indication that the resource is abandoned or no longer in use. Under-utilized, abandoned, or orphaned resources may create unnecessary expense or a wider attack surface that may be compromised by a malicious actor. Review the NAT Gateway configuration and remove it if it is no longer required.
