Defect Check


  A defect check is a way to assess determination statements. It has the following additional properties. A defect check: • Is stated as a test (wherever appropriate); • Can be automated; • Explicitly defines a particular desired state specification that is then compared to the corresponding actual state to determine the test result; • Provides information that may help determine the degree of control effectiveness/level of risk that is acceptable; • Suggests risk response options; and • Assesses a corresponding sub-capability.
