The Unified Compliance Framework® (UCF) is the first and largest initiative to map IT controls across numerous IT regulations, standards, guidelines, and authoritative sources. It reduces the regulatory maze to a much smaller set of "harmonized" controls, giving you a single point of management over hundreds of complex IT compliance requirements from around the world. We help you map the overlap between multiple authority documents, create your control list for specific IT areas, and clarify any conflicts created by overlapping authority documents.The UCF is relying on many authoritative sources across many industries and regulations, including:
From that harmonized list of controls, only the Unified Compliance Framework can then provide a transparent and directly linked structure to create the corporate governance tools necessary to implement the compliance process. Tools such as:
By applying the scientific method to compliance -- rigorously testing best practices and methodologies as well as analyzing and organizing information in a rational format -- Unified Compliance has developed a logical approach to IT compliance that reduces cost, limits liability, simplifies the compliance process, and leverages the value of related technologies and services across the enterprise.
