Azure Policy Regulatory Compliance controls for Azure Data Lake Storage Gen1

Regulatory Compliance in Azure Policy provides Microsoft created and managed initiative definitions, known as built-ins, for the compliance domains and security controls related to different compliance standards. This page lists the compliance domains and security controls for Azure Data Lake Storage Gen1. You can assign the built-ins for a security control individually to help make your Azure resources compliant with the specific standard.

The title of each built-in policy definition links to the policy definition in the Azure portal. Use the link in the Policy Version column to view the source on the Azure Policy GitHub repo.

Important

Each control is associated with one or more Azure Policy definitions. These policies might help you assess compliance with the control. However, there often isn't a one-to-one or complete match between a control and one or more policies. As such, Compliant in Azure Policy refers only to the policies themselves. This doesn't ensure that you're fully compliant with all requirements of a control. In addition, the compliance standard includes controls that aren't addressed by any Azure Policy definitions at this time. Therefore, compliance in Azure Policy is only a partial view of your overall compliance status. The associations between controls and Azure Policy Regulatory Compliance definitions for these compliance standards can change over time.
