ISMS Solutions’ Conformance Works
Effectively Managing the Standards Certification Process
[tabs style=”default”] [tab title=”Executive Summary”]
Organizations face a barrage of standards and compliance obligations that they need to ensure that business operations are current and certified to. It is particularly challenging when organizations manage compliance and certification in manual processes encumbered by paper-based or PDF standards supported by hundreds to thousands of documents, spreadsheets, and emails. Compliance and audit roles spend more time managing a volume of documents and manual tasks than actually managing and improving standard certification and compliance. This is initiating organizations to rethink how they approach standard certification and compliance functions and processes. The goal is to provide an integrated collaborative view that looks to share a common process, information, and technology architecture across varying standards and frameworks aligned to business functions. Organizations need complete situational awareness of standard certification that includes domain and industry knowledge of requirements across relevant jurisdictions that is kept current through an integrated standard certification and compliance solution that is easy to use across the organization. ISMS Solutions’ Conformance Works is a standards certification management solution provider that GRC 20/20 has researched, evaluated, and reviewed. It is beneficial to organizations across industries of all sizes that have complex, distributed, and dynamic business environments in context of standard certification. Conformance Works is a solution that focuses specifically on standard certification with integrated and current standard content in an easy to use and intuitive interface.
