Continuous control testing or continuous control monitoring (CCM) is a set of technologies that should be at the core of a well-built IT compliance and controls program. CCM helps an organization identify potential weaknesses and automatically remediate them. These technologies also create data and intelligence that can inform management’s risk and control assessment process to give a more accurate picture of the organization’s overall preparedness. Since continuous monitoring creates a feedback loop that improves the system over time, it can help to reduce the cost of sporadic audits and helps to reduce business costs. Additionally, CCM increases the organization’s ability to comply with ongoing and ever-evolving industry regulations.
