Unified Compliance Framework™

In the area of IT GRC, managing the vast range of complex regulations, guidelines and standards from around the world can be daunting.

  •  How does an enterprise manage the diverse regulations that affect its IT organization?
  •  How does it integrate IT controls into its current control framework while reducing the costs of compliance?
  •  Which regulatory initiatives overlap the others?

The Unified Compliance Framework™ (UCF) assists you in managing the impact of many regulations on your IT organization. The UCF is the first and largest initiative to map IT controls across numerous regulations, guidelines and standards. The UCF draws from a large number of authoritative sources across many industries and regulations, including:

Sarbanes-Oxley, PCI, Graham-Leach-Bliley Act, HIPAA, CMS, FERC and NERC, FIPS 191, Uniform Electronic Transactions Act (UETA), NASD Manual, ISO 27.002 and COBIT.

Many Authoritative Sources, One GRC Solution

The combination of UCF and BWise offers a proven solution for true IT GRC management. Together, they enable the unification of IT with a company’s entire GRC initiative. This joint framework makes it easy to quickly deploy the UCF without adjusting current corporate workflows and risk and control processes.

UCF Integrated into your Framework

By integrating the UCF, BWise has made the framework genuinely actionable. The enterprise can now easily select the set of regulations that it must comply with, and immediately schedule and execute IT controls. This can significantly reduce the amount of time IT professionals spend defining and maintaining an IT control framework. IT and Compliance departments see immediate benefits through the combination of the UCF and BWise. The joint solution provides the following benefits because it:

  • Simplifies the compliance process
  • Offers enhanced reporting on UCF and IT GRC
  • Leverages the value of related technologies and services across the enterprise

Ultimately, while compliance frameworks are tracked in one place, they satisfy many departments' requirements. The UCF and BWise combination is part of the integrated BWise® Governance, Risk and Compliance (GRC) platform.
