Compliance in Half the Time and Effort

Most organizations spend up to twice the time and effort needed to comply, and chances are your organization is too! Not only does it waste your organization’s money, it also forces you to work harder and longer hours than necessary.

How much time would save if you could prove compliance across multiple Authority Documents simultaneously and reduce duplication?

What causes of all this useless work: doing it manually, having silos in different parts of the organization create controls and comply on their own, and not following a harmonized controls approach across all requirements.

Sound familiar?

Why use the equivalent of a hoe, when you can use a tractor to do the heavy work? Especially when dealing with hundreds or thousands of controls and compliance documents.

Discover how to move from a manual process to scalable compliance framework, how to quickly reduce duplication of controls, and create a harmonized approach that allows you to comply and audit once instead of performing and auditing the same controls many times wasting time and money.

And get more confidence that you are complying with all mandates.

One of the hardest compliance challenges facing organizations is how to build a framework that efficiently manages all Common Controls. It can be incredibly complex and time consuming, and almost impossible for anyone to come up with a single framework to cover all of the possibilities.

What organizations need to be able to do is “harmonize” the controls that actually apply to them, leverage the Common Controls into their environment, and then look at the set of overarching requirements for all systems.

But, often the result is missed requirements, process inefficiencies, wasted time, and accelerated costs.

  • Learn how to audit once and measure compliance across many mandates simultaneously.
  • Understand and identify the gaps between regulations by generating an instant gap/overlap analysis between Authority Documents to drastically reduce repetitive evidence collection and audit requirements
  • See how the UCF aggregates and harmonizes requirements by extracting mandates from a range of Authority Documents and mapping them to established Common Controls
  • Create customized Controls sets in minutes across specific geographic, market, and vertical segments
  • Extract not only the Citations necessary for auditing against, but also the Common Control audit questions with pointers to the various evidence that needs to be gathered
