  • Once your integrations are in place, you can take full advantage of the benefits offered by automated tests in TrustOps. These tests are designed to run automatically at the defined evaluation frequency for each control. When an automated test is executed, the corresponding evidence for that control is fetched automatically, streamlining the assessment process.

    In the event of a failed automated test, you can simply click on the view activity icon to gain insights into the specific resources that did not meet the requirements. Additionally, you will find guidance on how to address and remediate the test to ensure compliance.

    However, it is important to note that not all tests can be automated. Some tests require human judgment or have not yet been automated due to their specific nature. For these cases, such as self-assessments, you will need to manually run the test and collect the required evidence.

    By combining automated tests with manual assessments, TrustOps provides a comprehensive approach to evaluating controls and gathering evidence, enabling you to maintain a robust compliance framework tailored to your organization’s unique requirements.
