Completing a Scope Self-Assessment
In your KCM GRC platform, you can use the Scope Self-Assessment to evaluate your organization's current level of compliance for each of your scopes. During the assessment, you can select a response for each requirement in a scope based on whether your organization is currently meeting the requirement. For general information about scopes, see the Scopes section of our Glossary of Compliance Terms.
You can update your self-assessment responses as many times as you would like. You can also show your stakeholders a summary of your responses to demonstrate your progress towards a scope.
See the sections below to learn how to complete the assessment and view a summary of your responses.

Selecting Self-Assessment Responses

|No Answer||Your organization has not determined whether you need to implement a control for the requirement.|
|Met||Your organization has already implemented the necessary controls and is currently meeting the requirement.|
|Partially Met||Your organization is partially meeting the requirement, but you need to implement additional controls to fully meet the requirement.|
