Excluding a test or assessment is made super easy with TrustOps! It offers the flexibility to exclude certain resource controls or tests from your program that may not apply to your business environment. This exclusion process is simplified with TrustOps, requiring a business justification for each exclusion. It is important to note that exclusions are global and will remain in effect until explicitly included. By utilizing TrustOps and understanding the TrustCloud Common Controls Framework (TCCCF), you can effectively set up your program with controls and policies.

How can TrustOps help in excluding a test or self-assessment?

To exclude a test or assessment, you need to provide a business justification at the time of exclusion. Additionally, excluding is global; once you exclude a test or an assessment, it will remain excluded until it is explicitly included.

Now that you have learned how to set up a program with controls and policies, dive into each TrustCloud Common Controls Framework (TCCCF) and learn more about each control requirement.
