Unified Compliance Announces Common Controls Attestation Portal

March 4, 2016 | Press Releases

Unified Compliance, the premier provider of compliance mapping and creators of the Unified Compliance Framework® (UCF®) and the Common Controls Hub® (the SaaS front-end for the UCF) this week announced the immediate availability of the API-enabled Common Controls Attestation Portal which provides quick, centralized, real-time distribution and reporting of regulatory compliance adherence of third-party and supply chain members across multiple vertical industries.

The Attestation Portal provides the ability to create an Authority Document-based list of Common Controls and then share that list of Common Controls with as many third-parties and supply chain members as needed in only 5 steps. Recipients may then either self-assess their compliance with the controls or have an auditor certify compliance with the Common Controls and then automatically certify the Configuration Controls. Those attestations are immediately updated and available in the originator’s portal of the Common Controls Hub or may be sent through the API to any API-enabled audit management tool, third-party and supply chain compliance risk management tools, as well as GRC tools.

Responders can use a Common Controls Hub free trial account to view the Common Control requirements or pay USD 99.00 to respond with results. Audit management tools can also load audit questions, which would otherwise have to be manually created, directly from the API.

The innovations of the API-enabled Common Control Attestation Portal go a long way to helping companies control their liability and gain visibility into third-party vulnerabilities which has become essential for effective vendor risk management.
