Exception Management

Exception ManagementTrustedAgent provides abilities for organizations to evaluate and document alternatives to typical implementation of controls including compensating controls, control scoping, and controls using risk-based decision. TrustedAgent also offers capability to manage risk acceptance of corrective actions that require extent remediation beyond typical timeline, or are too costly or not technically feasible to remediate. These exception handling capabilities offer flexibility for organizations to address any identified risks.

Highlighted Features supporting Exception Management

Offer flexibility and layered defense to support control implementation as required for several standards including NIST 800-53, PCI DSS, and NERC.
  • Control Scoping :: Provide the ability to raise or lower the applicability of a control, or to make a control required from an optional applicability basis as required in FFIEC Tier I and Tier 2 controls or PCI DSS Level.
  • Risk-based Decision Controls :: Controls can be documented and justified as risk-based decisions to support acceptance of risk where implementations may be costly, not feasible, or risk impact is insignificant to the organization. TrustedAgent also provisions for non-applicable controls and test cases to be eliminated from unnecessary evaluations saving substantial time.
