Missing application-level encryption of sensitive data detected.
- Rule ID: ruby_rails_default_encryption
- Languages: ruby
- Source: default_encryption.yml
Application-level encryption greatly reduces the risk of a data breach or data leak by making data unreadable. This rule checks if sensitive data types found in records are encrypted.
Whenever storing sensitive data to a datastore, make sure to encrypt the entire record, or the field itself.
