VCPG-67-000018 - Data from the vPostgres database must be protected from unauthorized transfer.

Information

Applications, including DBMSs, must prevent unauthorized and unintended information transfer via shared system resources.

Data used for the development and testing of applications often involves copying data from production. It is important that specific procedures exist for this process, including the conditions under which such transfer may take place, where the copies may reside, and the rules for ensuring sensitive data is not exposed.

Copies of sensitive data must not be misplaced or left in a temporary location without the proper controls.

NOTE: Nessus has not performed this check. Please review the benchmark to ensure target compliance.

Solution

Modify any code used for moving data from production to development/test systems to comply with the organization-defined data transfer policy and to ensure that copies of production data are not left in unsecured locations.
