Azure_Security_Benchmark_v3.0 PV-2 Azure_Security_Benchmark_v3.0_PV-2 Microsoft cloud security benchmark PV-2 Posture and Vulnerability Management Audit and enforce secure configurations Shared **Security Principle:** Continuously monitor and alert when there is a deviation from the defined configuration baseline. Enforce the desired configuration according to the baseline configuration by denying the non-compliant configuration or deploy a configuration. **Azure Guidance:** Use Microsoft Defender for Cloud to configure Azure Policy to audit and enforce configurations of your Azure resources. Use Azure Monitor to create alerts when there is a configuration deviation detected on the resources. Use Azure Policy [deny] and [deploy if not exist] rule to enforce secure configuration across Azure resources. For resource configuration audit and enforcement not supported by Azure Policy, you may need to write your own scripts or use third-party tooling to implement the configuration audit and enforcement. **Implementation and additional context:** Understand Azure Policy effects: Create and manage policies to enforce compliance: Get compliance data of Azure resources: n/a link 27
