Unified Compliance is Working with 501 Commons to Support Nonprofits

Since 1992, Unified Compliance has developed groundbreaking 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. Dorian Cougias and his research partner, Marcelo Halpern of the international law firm Perkins Coie, which oversees all legal aspects of the Unified Compliance Framework® (UCF®) created the UCF.

Twice honored with a GRC Innovation Award for Technical Innovation in Regulatory Intelligence for Compliance Management by independent governance, risk, and compliance (GRC) analyst firm GRC 20/20 Research, the UCF provides targeted, harmonized research on what an organization needs to do — and not do — to achieve and maintain compliance with industry, government, and best practice demands.

The UCF’s SaaS portal, the Common Controls Hub™ (CCH™), was specifically designed to enable users to easily retrieve needed data from the UCF’s massive data repository of more than 200,000 individual mandates from 800+ regulations and laws from around the world. Customers may automatically compile custom, harmonized control lists in minutes by vertical industries, market segments, and geographies and create instant gap/overlap analyses to drastically reduce audit requirements.
