Creating a custom framework in AWS Audit Manager

You can use custom frameworks to organize controls into control sets in a way that meets your specific requirements.

Key points

When it comes to creating custom frameworks in Audit Manager, you have two methods to choose from:

  1. Creating a custom framework from scratch - This gives you the flexibility to start with a clean slate and define every aspect of the framework according to your specifications. This approach is particularly beneficial when your requirements deviate significantly from existing standard frameworks, or when you need to incorporate proprietary control sets specific to your organization.

  2. Making an editable copy of an existing framework - This approach enables you to leverage the structure and content of an existing framework while providing the freedom to customize it to suit your specific needs. By starting with an established foundation, you can streamline the process of building your custom framework, focusing your efforts on tailoring it to your organization's unique requirements.

Regardless of the approach you choose, creating a custom framework involves a series of steps such as specifying framework details, defining control sets, and reviewing the framework before finalizing its creation. Throughout this process, you can incorporate your organization's specific control sets, ensuring that the custom framework accurately reflects your GRC requirements.
