Fix Recommendation

Apply appropriate controls to protect the confidentiality and integrity of data on a secondary device.

Where encryption is required, this can be done by full-disk encryption or by database encryption. To enable database encryption, create a master key, create a database encryption key, and protect it by using mechanisms tied to the master key, and then set encryption on.

Implement physical security measures, operating system access control lists and organizational controls appropriate to the sensitivity level of the data in the database(s).

Check Contents

If the application owner and Authorizing Official have determined that encryption of data at rest is NOT required, this is not a finding.

If the application owner and Authorizing Official have determined that encryption of data at rest is required, ensure the data on secondary devices is encrypted.

If full-disk encryption is being used, this is not a finding.

If DBMS data encryption is required, ensure the data is encrypted before being put on the secondary device by executing:

SELECT
d.name AS [Database Name],
CASE e.encryption_state
WHEN 0 THEN 'No database encryption key present, no encryption'
WHEN 1 THEN 'Unencrypted'
WHEN 2 THEN 'Encryption in progress'
WHEN 3 THEN 'Encrypted'
WHEN 4 THEN 'Key change in progress'
WHEN 5 THEN 'Decryption in progress'
WHEN 6 THEN 'Protection change in progress'
END AS [Encryption State]
FROM sys.dm_database_encryption_keys e
RIGHT JOIN sys.databases d ON DB_NAME(e.database_id) = d.name
WHERE d.name NOT IN ('master','model','msdb')
ORDER BY 1
;

For each user database where encryption is required, verify that encryption is in effect. If not, this is a finding.

Verify that there are physical security measures, operating system access control lists and organizational controls appropriate to the sensitivity level of the data in the database(s). If not, this is a finding.
