Getting Started with the UCF Common Controls Hub

Network Frontiers released a new method for allowing authenticated users to download content from the UCF Common Controls Hub (CCH) website. Users require a separate subscription to the Network Frontiers Unified Compliance Framework Common Controls Hub (UCF-CCH) to download UCF content.

For customers whose GRC entitlement date is before December 1, 2016, you are entitled to a free UCF CCH account for the period of December 1, 2016 through November 30, 2018.

For customers on Helsinki (Patch 7 and above), or Istanbul, and whose GRC entitlement date is December 1, 2016 or after, you must contact UCF-Common Control Hub to arrange for a subscription, if your organization plans on using Unified Controls Compliance as the provider of your controls library. For more information about establishing a UCF CCH account, see Unified Compliance Framework.
Note: A subscription to UCF-CCH is not required for using the GRC Policy & Compliance application.
