Automate the Regulatory Request Management Process

Responding to regulator or auditor evidence requests usually requires information from multiple parties within your organization. The ProcessUnity Control Evaluation Engine provides powerful workflows to automate the document request process, shortening response times and ensuring completeness while reducing stress for all parties involved. For exams and audits, ProcessUnity creates unique routings and milestones to track progress, which rolls up into reports via the Cybersecurity Performance Command Center.   To promote accountability, teams can organize and assign requests to individuals across the organization.  The platform can assign due dates with reminders to keep activities on track.

Accelerate Cybersecurity Audit Preparation

ProcessUnity CPM speeds audit preparation and evidence collection by providing each functional area of an organization with the ability to upload documents to the Evidence Collection Database. The database is organized in a logical structure to support the audit process and ultimately validate the organization’s compliance with regulatory and industry requirements.

Streamline Certification Activities within the Cybersecurity Performance Command Center

The ProcessUnity Cybersecurity Performance Command Center provides an interactive, real-time status overview of all audit and certification activities across the organization. With this comprehensive visibility, program managers can keep audit and certification activities on schedule and proactively plan for future exams.

ProcessUnity CPM allows assignees to view the status of their document requests, respond with questions and attach appropriate documentation. Once submitted, document requestors can review and approve the evidence provided, then initiate follow-up requests for additional documentation as needed.

Employees with appropriate permissions can see upcoming exams, key milestones, issues uncovered to date by source, historical document requests and the progress of open requests.
