DM.4.02 - Encryption of Data at Rest

Control Statement

Red, orange, and yellow data at rest is encrypted.

Context

Encrypting data at rest helps ensure the confidentiality and integrity of that data. In the event a production instance, data store, or backup is compromised, without encryption, the data is near certain to be accessed, modified, and/or stolen. Encrypting sensitive data at rest adds another roadblock and layer of complexity for the adversary and helps protect customer, employee, and partner data.

Scope

This control applies to red, orange, and yellow data.

Ownership

TBD
