SureCloud, the provider of Gartner recognised Integrated Risk Management solutions and cybersecurity services, has partnered with Secure Controls Framework (SCF), granting all its customers access to SCF’s control set through its cloud-based Compliance solution.
Best practice for all businesses
SCF aims to provide cybersecurity and privacy control guidelines to organisations of any size and across any sector, helping them to implement best-practice controls to protect their data and processes, and respond to evolving threats. The framework currently incorporates over 850 controls, baselined across more than 150 regulations and standards, and is updated every few months.
Logical and efficient
Through the partnership, SureCloud’s Compliance solution now comes with the ability to load any of SCF’s content directly into the your control library, along with all of the regulatory mappings and associated data.
This means that the organisations can review and implement the SCF’s controls in the most logical and efficient way for its operations. All controls are mapped against statutory and regulatory frameworks, enabling the organisation to quickly ascertain which controls it needs to comply with according to its sector and regulatory divers. The SCF data comes with maturity level implementation guidelines that can be leveraged in the SureCloud compliance application to define what level of maturity each control is.
Accurate real-time status
If the controls are updated from one version of the framework to the next then SureCloud can automate and track the updates throughout their lifecycle, giving each organisation a real-time view of compliance at any time.
Match the evolving threat-landscape
SCF itself is a volunteer-led organisation, comprising experts from across the cybersecurity industry, so its controls are developed in line with the evolving threat landscape and the very latest expertise from the sector.
‘It is refreshing to see how SureCloud has developed a compliance solution that consumes SCF’s controls in an exceptionally well thought out manner, giving equal consideration to deployment and control management. As a result, we are incredibly pleased with SureCloud’s adoption of the SCF as one of its built-in control sets and their solution raises the stakes in the industry for a comprehensive compliance solution that helps to solve the difficult problem of control lifecycle management. We look forward to a long-term relationship with SureCloud.’ -SCF founder, Tom Cornelius
Matthew Davies, Product Marketing Director at SureCloud, said: “SureCloud is dedicated to making risk management, cybersecurity and regulatory compliance as streamlined and straightforward as possible. SureCloud’s products are cloud-based solutions, can be deployed rapidly and flexibly, and offer intuitive reporting and dashboard capability.
“SCF fits in perfectly with this ethos; it’s all about giving organisations access to the most up-to-date cybersecurity and data privacy control framework, and the practical steps they need to take in order to ensure compliance, in one place. It makes perfect sense, therefore, for us to make the SCF control sets available through our Compliance solution. We’re delighted with this new partnership and looking forward to getting more and more organisations on board with the SCF controls in the months ahead.”
