ASSOCIATED DRATA CONTROL

This test is part of the Independent Board of Directors control that ensures the members of the Board of Directors are independent of management, if a Board of Directors exists.

WHAT TO DO IF A TEST FAILS

If Drata has identified that a Board of Directors does exist but cannot find members indicated within Drata the test will fail. In addition, if the profile URL for any board member is not publicly accessible on the internet, the test will fail.

To remediate a failed test you will need to input the appropriate members for the Board of Directors directly within Drata. Linkedin profile URLs are the most reliable way to ensure the test passes.

STEPS TO REMEDIATE

  1. Navigate to the Key Personnel page (account-settings/personnel)

  2. Add/Verify that a user has been added as a Board of Directors member, with a public profile URL

  3. Update settings

    1. NOTE: if the monitoring test fails with properly-entered public URLs, try encoding the URLs as a troubleshooting step (see this article as a guide)
