When creating custom policies, new tests will be made to monitor the (annual) approval status of the policy and the employee acceptances. These new tests behave like our existing Vanta Policy Tests for annual approval and employee acceptance. This provides a better custom control experience to enable a mature security program.

    • The test will appear on the Test Page once the appropriate admin has approved the policy
    • All employees must accept the custom policy in the assigned employee group within the given SLA in order for the test to Pass
