An asset compliance assessment lets you collect attester responses and evidences to assess compliance for procedural controls based on regulatory mandates, policies, or risk objectives. You must have Control Compliance Suite 11.0 with Product Update 2013-2 (11.0.10300) installed if you want to carry out asset compliance assessments.
If the version of Control Compliance Suite is earlier than 11.0 with Product Update 2013-2 (11.0.10300), then you may still be able to create asset compliance assessment however, you will not be able to view the policy and mandate compliance reports for CCS Assessment Manager.
As an administrator, before you initiate an asset compliance assessment, you must do the following:
Create the IT assets or the business assets in CCS. In case of business assets, you must associate IT assets to the business assets.
You can also, Import the assets to CCS by using LDAP or a .csv file.
Assign asset owners to each asset. Users can be assigned in the format of domain\user.
Configure the CCS Assessment Manager with CCS settings.
To view CCS Assessment Manager questionnaires in CCS Control Studio and to view the CCS Assessment Manager evidence on CCS dashboards, the CCS user account must be a part of the RAM_Administrators group and the RAM_PowerUsers group.
When you assign an asset compliance assessment, the attester has the option to respond, delegate, or decline the assessment.
