With UCF Mapper, compliance teams will be able to customize their compliance programs to include any publicly available Authority Documents relevant to their organization.

Unified Compliance is the premier provider of compliance mapping and the creator of the Unified Compliance Framework® (UCF®) and its SaaS front-end, the Common Controls Hub™ (CCH™). Joining forces with (ISC)²®, the company brings their extensive expertise to create a compliance mapping training program for the soon-to-be-released product, UCF Mapper™. For a demonstration of UCF Mapper, register for our webinar on May 25, 2017 at 8 am PDT | 11:00 am EDT.

With UCF Mapper, compliance teams will be able to customize their compliance programs to include any publicly available Authority Documents relevant to their organization, but not currently available in the UCF. The teams will use the same patented processes the UCF team uses to create the most accurate and defensible compliance mappings available anywhere. Compliance teams with a Basic subscription to the Common Controls Hub, a UCF Mapper subscription, and a Compliance Mapping Certificate for each team member will be able to access UCF Mapper.

UCF Mapper Training to be Available Through (ISC)²
Compliance mapping is serious business. In order to stand up to the most rigorous scrutiny, UCF Mapper walks teams through the process of

  • cataloging Authority Documents
  • extracting pertinent Citations and Mandates
  • tagging the terms in those Mandates
  • selecting each tagged term’s in-context definition
  • mapping that tagged Mandate to a Common Control
  • matching the Common Control to corresponding Audit Questions.

Unified Compliance has teamed up with (ISC)², an international nonprofit membership association renowned for their training and certification training programs, to provide an enhanced computer-based training (CBT) program to teach the compliance mapping process step-by-step.

The training includes multimedia presentations, demonstrations, and hands-on experience. Compliance professionals will spend 8-10 hours learning to map Authority Documents correctly and accurately in a way that will satisfy auditors and regulators, while simplifying governance for their organization or clients.

(ISC)² will host the self-paced, seven module online course; Unified Compliance will host practical-application modules. Students may take up to a year to complete the course, and must pass both the online quizzes and the practical-application projects to be completed within the UCF Mapper. After successful completion of the course, participants will be awarded a Compliance Mapping Certificate from (ISC)², promoted to Mapper within the Unified Compliance Framework, and provided full access to the UCF Mapper tool. Students will also be awarded 8 CPE (Continuing Professional Education) credits.

The UCF Mapper requires five roles: Mapper, Reviewer, Approver, Lexicographer, and Lawyer. The training covers the Mapper, Reviewer and Approver roles; the Lexicographer and Lawyer roles are reserved for UCF staff. Each person who wishes to become a Certified Compliance Mapper and use UCF Mapper will purchase the training course for $2,695 (only $2,295 for the first 50 sign-ups). Initially, the course will be available for purchase through the UCF Mapper website, and will soon be available through the (ISC)² website.
