The 2013 GRC Technology Innovator awards was filled with competition. The number of submissions more than doubled over 2012. With 57 submissions there were only twelve slots for winners. GRC 20/20 looked through all of the submissions, asked for clarification where needed, and selected the 12 recipients to receive this honor.
Number 5 is C2CSmartCompliance’s Compliance Mapper which showed technology innovation for mind-mapping GRC.
C2CSmartCompliance’s Compliance Mapper has a powerful GRC content mapping engine that allows an organization to graphically map regulatory and customer-generated content and click to establish bi-directional links. The organization can graphically map policies and procedures to regulations and standards. Compliance Mapper eliminates the need for generically mapped, document-based approaches and reduces the number of controls needed to validate GRC. The mapping engine enables ‘anything’ across the GRC spectrum to be linked together such that the relationship(s) many levels deep can be seen. For example, an incident could be mapped to an asset that is linked to a procedure that addresses a policy that meets a requirement (standard or regulatory requirement). Change a policy, regulation, standard or best practice in the GRC framework and see what is affected before making the change. C2C mapping technology highlights both direct mapping and indirect mappings ensuring all affected parties can be notified of possible changes, before a process or supporting document is ‘knocked out’ of compliance.
