Adopted and Planned Controls

Control status can be marked as “Adopted” or “Planned” in TrustOps.

On the Controls page, you can filter the controls list using the first drop-down menu by selecting ‘Adopted’, ‘Planned’, or ‘All’.

The following screenshot shows the control’s status to view adopted or planned controls.

TO Controls Control Status

  • Planned Controls: These controls have not been implemented yet; they are controls that are recommended for you to implement.
  • Adopted controls: These controls are reviewed and accepted as part of your program. If you have a specific compliance goal, you can use the “Show mapping to” drop-down menu and select the compliance goal you are trying to meet.
