Unified Compliance, developer of the only patented compliance database framework, today announced that they have been honored with a 2015 GRC Innovation Award in the compliance management category for the UCF Common Controls Hub™ by GRC analyst firm, GRC 20/20. The 4th annual GRC Innovation Awards recognize technology innovations and user experience in Governance, Risk Management and Compliance programs and processes.

Unified Compliance’s Commoncontrolshub.com provides users with rapid access to a massive data repository of more than 90,000 individual mandates from 800-plus laws and standards (“Authority Documents”) from around the globe. Built on the Unified Compliance Framework®, the Common Controls Hub SaaS portal gives compliance professionals the ability to centrally scope, define, and maintain regulatory demands online, and:

  • Automatically compile custom, harmonized control lists in minutes
  • Research Authority Documents by vertical, market segments, and geographies that apply to their organization.
  • Effortlessly combine new compliance regulation controls with existing controls and quickly integrate incremental changes.
  • Reduce GRC requirements to the bare minimum needed to comply.
  • Create instant gap overlap analyses to drastically reduce compliance research costs.
  • Easily gauge the impact of new regulatory compliance mandates, new initiatives, and new geographies, rather than having to complete an entirely new assessment.

“Unified Compliance has demonstrated GRC innovation in Compliance Management that delivers the ability for organizations to streamline GRC processes to scope, define, and maintain regulatory demands online in minutes to dramatically improve the efficiency, effectiveness, and agility of their GRC program as well as business operations.” said Michael Rasmussen, Chief GRC Pundit for GRC 20/20. “It is imperative that we recognize today’s successes as a milestone toward advancing GRC maturity. The UCF Common Controls Hub is a compelling offering for compliance management in the context of regulatory change that will advance GRC technology and make organizations more efficient, effective, and agile.”

About Unified Compliance and the UCF
Since 1992, Unified Compliance has developed ground-breaking tools to support IT best practices, with a focus on solutions and processes that further the science of compliance, including harmonization methods, metrics, systems continuity and governance. By applying the scientific method to compliance—rigorously testing best practices and methodologies as well as analyzing and organizing information into 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. The UCF® was created by Dorian Cougias and his research partner, Marcelo Halpern of the international law firm Perkins Coie, which oversees all legal aspects of the UCF. Unified Compliance was recently granted the first-ever patent for a Governance, Risk, and Compliance (GRC) framework. The UCF was honored with a 2014 and a 2015 GRC Technology Innovation Award by independent GRC analyst firm, GRC 20/20.
