Security Health Check - Additional Settings

Security Health Check was introduced with our February '22 release. It is a self-service page for customers to view and manage their portal's security settings. Security Health Check creates a joint responsibility model between Cornerstone and its customers, allowing customers to view and manage their portal’s security settings.

With our May '22 release we have introduced 10 additional values to the Security Health Check tool. Plus we have introduced the concept of a Warning status.

How Does this Enhancement Benefit My Organization?

This enhancement enables customers to view and manage additional portal's security settings. It will also enable customers to identify warning level security issues.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Use Case

Alicia is a Cornerstone system administrator working with her IT Security department to review and sign off on application settings for an upcoming audit. Alicia accesses the Security Health Check tool, where she can easily identify the following:

  • Cornerstone security settings relevant to customer system administrators
  • Her organization's current security setting value compared to the Cornerstone recommended value
  • Detailed descriptions of each security setting

Alicia notices that the value of one of her organization's settings is not aligned with Cornerstone's recommended value, and she wants to update to the most secure value ahead of the upcoming audit. From the Security Health Check tool, she can identify settings that require a ticket to Global Customer Support to update.
