The QO journey to Continuous Controls Monitoring

There are several challenges many businesses face in the current climate that is stretching and complicating operations. :

  • Lack of visibility in their assets posing a threat to their cyber asset attack surface management (CAASM). 
  • Challenges in understanding the level of coverage gaps in their security controls
  • Compliance regulatory pressures exasperating manual processes  

 

Whilst organisations can feel it is insurmountable to implement continuous controls monitoring, our CCM supports your maturity and operational resilience by:

  • Creating a live asset repository, connecting to any data providing clarity of all your business assets for accurate metric reporting; that is the essential first step that opens the gateway to Continuous Controls Monitoring.
  • See and understand your security, compliance and risk posture in real-time with automated, continuous monitoring of all your controls.

Wherever your starting point, our work with you will take you on the journey to the single source of truth that is continuous controls monitoring.

Achieve the clarity you need in your cyber, risk and compliance environment with Continous Controls Monitoring solutions

Our asset management stretches beyond just cyber asset attacks management (CAASM) but covers all your business assets to provide complete visibility and clarity to be able to measure their effectiveness.  

Unlimited controls including all security controls, all major tools, and every major framework for a fully comprehensive CCM platform.

What is Continuous Controls Monitoring and why is it important?

Continuous Controls Monitoring (CCM) is an essential process for organisations to ensure the effectiveness of their internal controls and minimise risks. It is a proactive approach that involves the continuous monitoring of critical business processes, such as financial reporting, compliance, and operational activities, to identify and address any anomalies or deviations in real time.

The Quod Orbis platform is a comprehensive solution that provides organisations with the necessary tools to implement a robust CCM program. Our CCM platform offers an intuitive interface that allows users to define and configure controls, create monitoring rules, and set up notifications for critical events. It also provides advanced analytics and reporting capabilities, enabling users to gain valuable insights into their organisation’s performance and identify areas for improvement.

The Quod Orbis Continuous Controls Monitoring software is designed to integrate with various data sources, such as ERPs, CRMs, and financial systems, to collect and analyse data in real time. In fact our CCM Platform can connect to ANY data source regardless of where it might be. It uses machine learning algorithms and artificial intelligence to detect anomalies and deviations, which are then flagged for further investigation. The CCM software can also generate automated alerts and notifications to notify relevant stakeholders of any potential risks or issues.

Overall, the Quod Orbis Continuous Controls Monitoring platform and software provide organisations with a powerful toolset to implement a robust CCM program. By continuously monitoring critical business processes, organisations can identify and address potential risks before they become significant issues, improve their overall performance, and ensure compliance with regulatory requirements.

Why is Continuous Controls Monitoring important to business?

It refers to the process of continuously monitoring and reviewing key controls in order to identify any potential risks or gaps that could negatively impact business operations. The objective of CCM is to ensure that controls are working effectively and efficiently and to provide early warning of any potential issues that could lead to financial loss, reputation damage, or non-compliance with regulations.

With the increasing complexity of business processes and the growing number of regulatory requirements, it has become essential for organisations to have a robust CCM program in place. By continuously monitoring controls, organisations can quickly identify and respond to potential risks before they become major issues. This helps to reduce the likelihood of financial losses, avoid costly compliance violations, and protect the organisation’s reputation.

It enables organisations to track the status of controls, identify potential risks, and take appropriate corrective action in a timely manner. The page may include dashboards, reports, and alerts that highlight areas of concern and enable stakeholders to drill down into specific details.

Providing real-time monitoring and reporting of key controls, we help organisations to identify and respond to potential risks in a timely manner, which can ultimately help to protect your financial well-being, reputation, and compliance with regulations.

This has left businesses overwhelmed coupled with continuing digital transformation has meant that many organisations have a complex infrastructure of multiple tools not working together cohesively. Traditional manual-intensive, point-in-time, error-prone ways of managing audits and compliance are now worryingly inadequate for the complex task at hand.

Along with any data-related fines and reputational loss, this can culminate to create a perfect storm.  

All these complexities are addressed by CCM

Continuous Controls Monitoring platform creates an cyber ecosystem pulling together all software and technology investments into one single source of truth, demonstrating the effectiveness of all your controls for total visibility.

Continuous Controls Monitoring is the new benchmark for organisations looking to streamline compliance and manage cyber risk more effectively. It can offer complete visibility over all your cyber solutions and help you maximise your current investments, highlighting any potential gaps in coverage.

By automating previous manual tasks, Continuous Controls Monitoring significantly reduces time, effort and costs, and in fact, ROI is rapid as opposed to the risk of high costs of fines as a result of a breach.

Typically, organisations expend a phenomenal amount of energy and cost on controls in a bid to meet their security needs, yet most don’t have absolute confidence that their controls are performing adequately, or that their risks are materially reduced.

While many organisations invested in advanced malware solutions, SOCs and managed threat services, no one was looking to see if the data going in was accurate or that the solutions are still working effectively long after they are installed – Continuous Controls Monitoring is the advanced approach that addresses these factors.

Taking a holistic approach, the Quod Orbis CCM managed platform is positioned at the forefront of the CCM market. It is not just another new security tool, but a solution that brings together and maximises all of your investments in that area.
