Pending Attestations

Attestations are a way of verifying that security and compliance measures are being met. For example, having a manager attest to the groups his employees belong to provides accountability if security breaches are found. Attestation policies define what and whom to attest.

Attestation policies are run on a schedule, and generate attestation cases. These appear on the My Actions menu. The amount of time you are give to close an attestation case is configured as part of the attestation policy.

As an attestor, you must be able to verify your attestations. Verifying attestations requires reading reports or manually checking object that are attested. If you are not ready to make a decision, you may be able to:

  • Generate a report that provides detailed information about the object which you are attesting
  • Request more information, add attestors, or delegate the attestation.

Some functions have already been described in the menu My Attestation Status. You can find all the executable functions in the menu listed under "Detailed information about this topic".

To open the "Pending Attestations" menu

  • Open the menu Attestation | My Actions and click Pending Attestations.
