A compliance standard is an item in cloudtamer.io that groups together compliance checks. Compliance standards can align with established security guidelines, if desired. For example, you could name the compliance standard "NIST" if its compliance checks are reviewing resources for alignment with NIST security guidelines.
Compliance standards are applied to cloud rules, which are, in turn, applied to an OU or project. All resources within that OU or project will be subject to the compliance checks included in that compliance standard.
To create a compliance standard, read Add a Compliance Standard in the knowledge base. To add compliance standards to a cloud rule and apply the cloud rule to a project or OU, read Add a Cloud Rule in the knowledge base.
