Mitigating controls overview

You can see the most important information about a mitigating control on the overview form.

To obtain an overview of a mitigating control

  1. In the Manager, select the Risk index functions > Mitigating controls category.

  2. Select the mitigating control in the result list.

  3. Select the Mitigating control overview task.

Assigning attestation policies

Use this task to specify for which attestation policies the mitigating control is valid.

To assign attestation policies to mitigating controls

  1. In the Manager, select the Risk index functions > Mitigating controls category.

  2. Select the mitigating control in the result list.

  3. Select the Assign attestation polices task.

Calculating mitigation

The reduction in significance of a mitigating control supplies the value by which the risk index of an attestation policy is reduced when the control is implemented.One Identity Manager calculates a reduced risk index based on the risk index and the significance reduction. One Identity Manager supplies default functions for calculating reduced risk indexes. These functions cannot be edited with One Identity Manager tools.

The reduced risk index is calculated from the company policy and the significance reduced sum of all assigned mitigating controls.

Risk index (reduced) = Risk index - sum significance reductions

If the significance reduction sum is greater than the risk index, the reduced risk index is set to 0.

Setting up attestation in a separate database

Scheduled attestations are often processes that generate a high load. It is possible to outsource such processes to a separate database and thus relieve the central database. To synchronize both databases, set up system synchronization using the One Identity Manager connector. You can optimize use of One Identity Manager functionality by synchronizing with a central database, containing all the data, on a regular basis.

All data required for attestation are transferred from the central database to a work database. The attestation is set up and carried out in the work database. The results of the attestation are transferred to the central database. Subsequent processes, such as the withdrawing entitlements after attestation is denied or risk index calculations, are carried out in the central database.
