Managed Compliance Services™
Business management owns the responsibility for regulatory compliance. This cannot be satisfied, entirely, from an IT perspective. Business-centric compliance (B-GRC) is a services-led engagement requiring specialized knowledge and experience. Because regulatory and policy changes have such a cascading effect on the regulatory posture, the organization must understand the risk, decide what’s best from a business perspective, factor in best practices and create a starting point. This is the foundation of B-GRC.
C2C will help clients interpret the standards and regulations that best support the business objectives and build out a custom, common operating compliance framework. Then it will import the custom framework into Compliance Mapper™ and assist clients in mapping it out to the selected control environments, allowing clients to assess and measure against the best practices that support the business. This blended approach of software plus services, as a compliance solution, is continually being appreciated and validated by our growing international customer base.
“The thing I like the most about Compliance Mapper is that it can be used as a Neural Network for a wide variety of people from different disciplines. Compliance Mapper is able to capture the structure and relationship of many regulations and international controls applicable to an organization, as well as the linkage of those external elements to the internal policies, standards, processes, procedures, tasks and points of internal accountability. This neural network view is an over the horizon line of sight from operation tasks all the way through executive responsibility and board level accountability. With the mapping to regulation, this mesh-worked line of sight is also available from regulations through internal controls down to the specific controls that will provide the evidence of compliance. The flexibility to map using a neural network style of nodes and links means that Compliance Mapper can rapidly build up a contextual view of compliance which becomes a corporate memory as both the regulations and internal organization evolves.” Alf Rock of Alkamind Consulting.
