The Evidence tab is used to manage evidence and evidence requests that link to controls. Evidence can also be linked and created directly within a Control. An example of evidence that would link to a control would be something that proves the control was adhered to, such as background check procedure for a control that requires background checks. An evidence request may come during audit that requests a sample of these background checks to be provided to the auditor to prove that the control was adhered to.
