Setting Up Continuous Controls Monitoring In Hyperproof Is Easy

1. Identify existing controls

Before you can set up a test, you need to identify the existing controls in your organization and bring them into Hyperproof. You can quickly import controls from a spreadsheet into Hyperproof and organize them by traits such as control criticality, control domain, control owner, and more.

2. Select controls to automatically test and monitor

Good candidates for automated control testing and monitoring are control processes that occur at high frequency (continuously, daily, weekly, monthly, etc.) and those that generate well-structured data for testing (rows and columns of data suitable for Excel formulas).

3. Set up a test for each control

Set up a test for each control or a group of related controls at once. Hyperproof’s flexible test builder allows you to write many types of tests – it’s similar to popular Excel functions you may already know (VLOOKUP(), HLOOKUP(), or an IF() ).

4. Determine what should happen if a test fails

Once you write a test, determine what type of response is appropriate when a test fails or the result is unexpected. For instance, you may choose to set up an automatic notification and send it to the control operator when the control test fails.

5. Build reports for easy monitoring of automated controls

Hyperproof makes it easy to build custom reports that track relevant data and processes. As a best practice, we recommend you create a report of all automated controls after initial setup to ensure these tests and test-driven notifications are working as intended.

Security Controls that Benefit from Continuous Monitoring

  • Did a designated approver always review new code before it was deployed into the production environment?

  • Did the system admin for the company’s SSO system remove any terminated employee from access within forty-eight hours of termination?

  • If the application firewall is not on, would someone be notified so they can fix the issue immediately?

  • If a vulnerability is discovered and it has a critical rating, was it patched within 7 days according to our vulnerability management policy?

  • Are all of our cloud databases and end-point devices encrypted according to our encryption policy?
