In order to modularize and simplify the use and representation of compliance findings, there exist compliance control categories, in other words, compliance control knowledge base which contains the abstract details of a single control, such as Enforce Password History or Account Lockout Threshold.
Every compliance control in NormShield has a compliance control category. There might more than one compliance controls having a single compliance control category. Figure shows the listing of compliance control categories by clicking submenu Vulnerability->Compliance Control Categories.
As controls are automatically or manually imported, controls categories are created in NormShield that doesn’t exist before.
The control categories can be filtered by using compliance standard names, control grouping names or short names.
