Gather the Information
Dynamic conditional questions allow you to create a questionnaire that will unfold based on the auditor’s responses. If a particular answer is given further questions can appear to get clarity or notices to warn the auditor of potential issues.
These questionnaires can be used for all types of compliance including security audits, ISO’s and GDPR/Data Protection and self assessment.
