Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) July 16, 2014
Aruvio and the Unified Compliance Framework® (UCF) today announced the Standards Comparison Tool is now available. The Standards Comparison Tool (SCT) is a valuable, free-to-use site developed in association with the Information Security Forum (ISF) to help organizations manage third-party supplier risk and simplify the procurement process between organizations and their third-party suppliers.
Aruvio leveraged their cloud-based GRC product line and the Unified Compliance Framework content to allow any organization to automatically analyze and compare the compliance regulations they are following vs their third-party suppliers and then tabulate the gaps and overlaps between requirements.
“Information security practitioners currently face a range of overlapping security standards that increase compliance costs. During supplier vetting process, the array of standards can make it difficult to judge what a supplier certification actually means, what value to place on the certification, and what security benefits certifications actually indicate or confer,” said Rajesh Unadkat, Aruvio Founder and Vice President of Product. “The Standards Comparison Tool was developed specifically to help organizations that juggle multiple compliance regulations.”
“One of the great things about the Standards Comparison Tool is that anyone can quickly and easily see exactly what the gaps and the overlaps between their required controls and the controls their supply chain follow,” said Craig Isaacs, CEO, Unified Compliance Framework.
The core of the UCF is the Common Control table: over 1000 international laws, standards, obligations and more have been mapped to the Common Controls. Leveraging the Common Controls complements ISF’s Supply Chain Assurance Framework by enhancing communication between acquirers and suppliers in the management of information risk.
The Standards Comparison Tool is free-to-use for online gap analysis. Those who would like to export the gap analysis results can opt-in for a paid subscription.
