Control: 7.1 Ensure that BigQuery datasets are not anonymously or publicly accessible

Description

It is recommended that the IAM policy on BigQuery datasets does not allow anonymous and/or public access.

Granting permissions to allUsers or allAuthenticatedUsers allows anyone to access the dataset. Such access might not be desirable if sensitive data is being stored in the dataset. Therefore, ensure that anonymous and/or public access to a dataset is not allowed.

Remediation

From Console

  1. Login to BigQuery.
  2. Select the dataset from Resources.
  3. Click SHARE DATASET near the right side of the window.
  4. Review each attached role.
  5. Click the delete icon for each member allUsers or allAuthenticatedUsers. On the popup click Remove.

From Command Line

  1. Retrieve the data set information:
bq show --format=prettyjson PROJECT_ID:DATASET_NAME > PATH_TO_FILE
  1. In the access section of the JSON file, update the dataset information to remove all roles containing allUsers or allAuthenticatedUsers.

  2. Update the dataset:

bq update --source PATH_TO_FILE PROJECT_ID:DATASET_NAME

Usage

steampipe check gcp_compliance.control.cis_v120_7_1
