You can use the following command to see the description of your security group.

aws ec2 describe-security-groups --group-ids sg-0587e1bghy67bb5d43
{
    "SecurityGroups": [
        {
            "Description": "My security group",
            "GroupName": "my-sg",
            "IpPermissions": [],
            "OwnerId": "24537890989895",
            "GroupId": "sg-0587e1bghy67bb5d43",
            "IpPermissionsEgress": [
                {
                    "IpProtocol": "-1",
                    "IpRanges": [
                        {
                            "CidrIp": "0.0.0.0/0"
                        }
                    ],
                    "Ipv6Ranges": [],
                    "PrefixListIds": [],
                    "UserIdGroupPairs": []
                }
            ],
            "VpcId": "vpc-0f137be1456thyda16"
        }
    ]
}

This is the way you will get your description. This will give a brief idea about what is the VPC-Id and Owner Id etc.
