Finding ID Version Rule ID IA Controls Severity
V-219844 O121-BP-023300 SV-219844r533073_rule Medium
Data export from production databases may include sensitive data. Application developers do not have a need to know to sensitive data. Any access they may have to production data would be considered unauthorized access and subject the sensitive data to unlawful or unauthorized disclosure.

If the database being reviewed is a production database, this check is not a finding.

Review policy, procedures and restrictions for data imports of production data containing sensitive information into development databases.

If data imports of production data are allowed, review procedures for protecting any sensitive data included in production exports.

If sensitive data is included in the exports and no procedures are in place to remove or modify the data to render it not sensitive prior to import into a development database or policy and procedures are not in place to ensure authorization of development personnel to access sensitive information contained in production data, this is a finding.
