The Controls module helps you to reduce the impact and likelihood of risks within your business.
The Control record provides details on what the control itself is trying to achieve. It will provide details on the Control itself as well as housing the Activities that relate to it. Ultimately, the data from the linked activities will contribute to the Operational Effectiveness of the control.
The Control record is primarily designed to advise the user on the purpose and outcome of the control. It contains little in the way of functionality - which is all carried out within the Activities linked to the control.
The create/ edit form for controls allows for all fields to be completed. Field help will be provided against all fields to assist the user through the set-up process.
Particular attention should be paid to the Category and Subcategory as these fields link the Controls, Risk and Incidents together.
The Design Effectiveness is a particularly important field as this, along with the Operational Effectiveness, contributes directly to the Control Rating.
Ticking the Financial Control box, or the E2E Process box expand the form to allow more data to be captured.
Mandatory fields are highlighted pink.
