Interpreting V-32589:

As stated this STIG does not apply to a database system, but you can setup events and triggers in SQl Server to alert you of suspicious activity. Activities such as failed login attempts, encryption key use failures, etc. You can either setup triggers, or look into using the integrated Policy management to detect, and alert you of certain activities. You can even use Policy Management to prevent and alert of activity in a more pro-active approach.
