Hey everyone, we wanted you to be aware of the new Beta 2 of the IT GRC Process MP, now available here. The IT GRC Process Management Pack for System Center Service Manager provides end-to-end compliance management and automation for desktop and datacenter computers. Deeply integrated with Service Manager, the IT GRC Process Management pack translates complex regulations and standards into authoritative control objectives and control activities for the IT organization’s compliance program.
The IT Compliance Management Series bridges the knowledge gap by translating auditor expectations and IT GRC authority document requirements into real IT tasks through the use of control activities that are specific to a particular technology or platform. This Solution Accelerator takes advantage of the ability of Microsoft® System Center Service Manager to integrate with System Center Configuration Manager to automate the monitoring, validation, and reporting of the compliance state of Microsoft products. The supplied control activities link complex IT GRC requirements, stated as control objectives, to actual product configuration settings enabling System Center to act as an IT GRC management and over-sight solution for an organization. The series includes control activities and test automation for Windows Server® 2008, Windows Server 2008 R2, and Windows® 7, as well as additional prescriptive guidance for System Center Service Manager, System Center Configuration Manager, and System Center Operations Manager.
