UBTU-18-010008 - The Ubuntu operating system must have a crontab script running weekly to off-load audit events of standalone systems.


Information stored in one location is vulnerable to accidental or incidental deletion or alteration.

Off-loading is a common process in information systems with limited audit storage capacity.
