A test checks for a single requirement in a control. All controls contain one or more tests, each of which checks for a specific requirement of the control.

For example –

Logging of Administrative Actions is a control in TrustCloud, that has 3 tests in it –

  • Administrative Action Logging
  • Audit Logging
  • Audit Logging File Validation

Some tests are mapped to systems. For example, a test for Data Store Encryption at rest is mapped to each system of type Data Store, because each data store needs to be encrypted.
