Automating Compliance

Continuous Compliance

After evaluating the initial results, you can define your compliance monitoring and remediation plan.

The best practice is to move from ad-hoc assessments to a continuous compliance process with real-time notifications.

The key steps for automated compliance monitoring are:

  • Define frequency -The frequency of your assessment should be tailored to your processes. You can run reports daily, weekly, monthly, or on a custom schedule.
  • Identity owners -Define individuals or teams who will be notified of any findings or errors. You can have multiple owners for different reports, cloud accounts, or services being assessed.
  • Integrate with internal processes and supporting tools -Your existing internal tools can consume results and remediation plans for compliance assessment findings. Compliance monitoring can be done using email, SNS, or third-party IT Management Suite (ITMS) systems such as JIRA, PagerDuty, or ServiceNow.
