IT Compliance Management App
The MetricStream IT Compliance Management App provides a common framework to manage and monitor compliance with a range of IT regulations and standards. The app scales across the enterprise, streamlining and automating IT compliance management workflows, while consolidating compliance and control data in a central repository.
The app also integrates with the Unified Compliance Framework (UCF), enabling enterprises to map 9,300+ IT control statements to 1,200+ regulations. Through a federated approach to IT compliance management, the app provides top-level visibility into compliance processes across geographies, business units, and functional departments.
Create and maintain a central structure of the overall IT compliance hierarchy, including processes, assets, risks, controls, and audits. Map controls to compliance regulations and policies, enabling an integrated approach to on-going IT compliance activities.
Leverage the industry-leading UCF Common Controls Hub to standardize and harmonize control sets across multiple IT regulations. Enable dynamic linking of regulations with UCF control statements via tight integration between UCF and the MetricStream GRC library.
Configure and execute IT compliance surveys, certifications, and control self-assessments based on predefined templates and schedules. Facilitate electronic sign-offs at departmental and functional levels, and roll them up for executive certifications.
Link IT compliance controls and assessment activities according to your specific regulatory requirements. Schedule automatic assessments based on predefined criteria and checklists. Perform control tests based on questions and procedures, and attach evidence of findings. Score, tabulate, and report the results efficiently.
Trigger a systematic process to document, investigate, and resolve IT compliance and control issues. Send out automated alerts to keep investigation and remediation task assignments on track.
Receive alerts on IT regulatory content updates and other actionable insights by subscribing to structured content channels through MetricStream’s GRC Intelligence (GRCI). Respond to the alerts by raising an issue, notifying the required stakeholders, linking alerts to data objects, and generating reports.
Strengthen visibility into the status of IT compliance assessment efforts and the overall compliance profile through predefined, real-time reports, user-specific dashboards, and graphical snapshots.

MetricStream IT Compliance Management Software Solution
To counter the growing volume of risks around data security and privacy, regulators have issued multiple IT laws and requirements, ranging from PCI DSS, Basel II/ III, and NERC CIP, to FISMA, SOX, FFIEC, NIST-SP800, and ISO 27001. However, compliance with these regulations can be complex and prone to inefficiencies due to the overlap in controls and compliance tasks across various regulations.
The MetricStream IT Compliance Management Software Solution integrates with the UCF framework, and has the option of a comprehensive policy management functionality. The solution supports the mapping of IT controls to compliance regulations and policies, thereby eliminating redundancies. It also replaces siloed compliance activities and point applications with an integrated compliance management system that provides comprehensive visibility into IT compliance activities.
