Azure_Security_Benchmark_v3.0 DP-4 Azure_Security_Benchmark_v3.0_DP-4 Microsoft cloud security benchmark DP-4 Data Protection Enable data at rest encryption by default Shared **Security Principle:** To complement access controls, data at rest should be protected against 'out of band' attacks (such as accessing underlying storage) using encryption. This helps ensure that attackers cannot easily read or modify the data. **Azure Guidance:** Many Azure services have data at rest encryption enabled by default at the infrastructure layer using a service-managed key. Where technically feasible and not enabled by default, you can enable data at rest encryption in the Azure services, or in your VMs for storage level, file level, or database level encryption. **Implementation and additional context:** Understand encryption at rest in Azure: Data at rest double encryption in Azure: Encryption model and key management table: n/a link 8
