You can improve your SAQ 5.0 rating by following the recommendations generated upon completion of your questionnaire, as well as the 'Declaration Gaps' provided by the validation team.


By ensuring you are responding to at least the Minimum Scope questions positively and covering all policy areas, you are able to continuously improve your results.
In addition, our trained Validation team will also declare gaps of evidence found within your documentation, but that has not been selected by you when you first responded to the SAQ 5.0. By following the 'Declaration gaps' and updating your results to reflect these, you will be improving your SAQ 5.0 rating.
