ASSOCIATED DRATA CONTROL

This test is part of the Software Development Life Cycle Policy control that ensures your company has developed policies and procedures governing the system development life cycle, including documented policies for tracking, testing, approving, and validating changes.

WHAT TO DO IF A TEST FAILS

If Drata finds that a Software Development Life Cycle policy either does not exist or has not been approved within the last 12 months the test will fail.

To remediate a failed test, you will need to either upload or build the Software Development Life Cycle policy within Drata or notify the owner to click 'Approve Policy' as soon as possible.

STEPS TO REMEDIATE

  1. Navigate to the Policy Center page

  2. Add a 'Software Development Life Cycle Policy' and ensure that the newly added policy is approved
