What is DATA-3 File System Encryption Control?

File system encryption protects individual files or file systems by encrypting them with a specific key and making them accessible only to authorized persons.

There are no mandatory encryption mechanisms to use; this is left to the discretion of each company. Therefore, as an organization, you can edit the TrustCloud control ‘File systems for databases and other sensitive data storage require at least block-level encryption’ to match your unique encryption mechanisms.
