Starting attestation of new rule violations

NOTE: This functionality is only available if the Attestation Module in installed.

There are several different ways to start attesting policy violations:

  • Attest new policy violations immediately

    If Start attestation of new rule violations immediately is enabled on the company policy, an attestation case is created immediately for each new policy violation when policy checking is run. To do this, the POL_QERPolicyHasObject_create_attestationcase process is run for each insert into the QERPolicyHasObject table.

  • Starting attestation of all rule violations manually

    To trigger attestation of all object that violate a company policy, in the Manager, run the Recertify all policy violations task. First this check whether all affected objects can be determined as attestation objects by the assigned attestation policy. If this is not the case, an error message is shown and attestation does not start.

  • Starting scheduled attestation of all rule violations

    Attestation is started by the schedule stored with the attestation policy.

Detailed information about this topic

Mitigating controls for company policies

Violation of regulatory requirements can harbor different risks for companies. To evaluate these risks, you can apply risk indexes to company policies. These risk indexes provide information about the risk involved for the company if this particular policy is violated. Once the risks have been identified and evaluated, mitigating controls can be implemented.

Mitigating controls are independent on One Identity Manager’s functionality. They are not monitored through One Identity Manager.

Mitigating controls describe controls that are implemented if a company policy was violated. The next policy check should not find any rule violations once the controls have been applied.

To edit mitigating controls

  • In the Designer, set the QER | CalculateRiskIndex configuration parameter and compile the database.

If you disable the configuration parameter at a later date, model components and scripts that are no longer required, are disabled. SQL procedures and triggers are still carried out. For more information about the behavior of preprocessor relevant configuration parameters and conditional compiling, see the One Identity Manager Configuration Guide.

For more information about risk assessment, see the One Identity Manager Risk Assessment Administration Guide.
