SV-230956r615886_ruleForescout must be configured to conduct backups of system-level information contained in the information system when changes occur.
SV-230957r616550_ruleForescout must support organizational requirements to conduct backups of information system documentation, including security-related documentation, when changes occur or weekly, whichever is sooner.
SV-230958r616552_ruleForescout must obtain its public key certificates from an appropriate certificate policy through an approved service provider.
