What Is TrustOps?

TrustOps®is a TrustCloud application designed for startups, SMBs, and enterprises to achieve and maintain adherence to multiple security, privacy, financial, and manufacturing compliance standards.

With the help of TrustOps, organizations can:

  • Measure security and privacy risks affecting any part of the business.
  • Create and maintain a personalized common control framework (CCF) that automatically maps each control to many compliance standards (for startups, TrustOps auto-generates a CCF based on what it learns about the business).
  • Automate control verification and testing to reduce manual work.
  • Get customized policies derived from your CCF (all policies are mapped to controls to measure the level of compliance and risk within each policy).
  • Maintain a data classification register of all vendors and systems within the business.
  • Track the progress of employees and teams in completing compliance and trust obligations by setting up employee attestation and training workflows.

Who uses it?

The primary administrators of TrustOps are:

  • For startups: CTOs, VPs of Engineering, or Security Leads
  • For SMBs: security or compliance leads
  • For enterprises: security and compliance leads

Apart from administrators, every employee involved in a security, privacy, or compliance workflow is invited as a user or as an owner in TrustOps. They can be people from engineering, DevOps, HR, finance, IT, security, and compliance teams.

How TrustOps helps you

  • Achieve compliance by investing very little time and money

TrustOps helps you achieve and maintain compliance with very little effort and reduces the cost involved in audits.

  • Manage compliance with automated workflows

You can achieve and maintain compliance with the help of TrustOps testing and workflow automation. An automated evidence collection and workflow automation test resolves problems with ease. The intelligent workflow automation reminds teams to attest and upload evidence to ensure control adherence. 

  • Easily assign ownership across teams

You can also easily assign ownership of systems, controls, and policies across your team. It enables periodic self-assessment workflows for systems with no API dependencies.

  • Create and/or manage custom control framework

TrustOps helps you streamline the process of meeting many compliance standards. You can adopt and test personalized controls tailored to your business that are easy to understand. Every control is mapped to multiple security and privacy requirements crafted to include different tests to collect evidence with minimal manual effort.

  • Get customized policies

With TrustOps, you never have to write or maintain policies manually. You get customized policies that are derived from controls in your compliance program. Also, you can link your existing policies with TrustOps and map controls to them. All of this is done in an automated way, saving manual effort and reducing risk.

  • Automate risk tracking

TrustOps helps you automate risk tracking by accurately measuring security and risks across systems, controls, and policies. The risk scores are auto-generated (and can be added to a risk register) to identify and manage risks. This score is used to attest to your customers that your systems are secure and compliant.

  • Turn on continuous audit readiness assessments

Turn on continuous audit readiness assessments to be aware of how far you are from achieving ISO 27001, SOC 2, HIPAA, GDPR, CCPA, ISO 27701, and numerous other compliance standards. You can start with one certification, and you will be amazed by how you automatically achieve compliance with other standards without any additional effort.

  • Onboard and offboard employees easily

TrustOps enables you to invite your employees to complete policy attestation workflows, security training, and onboarding and offboarding activities with ease.
