Manage control indicators

Continuous monitoring involves activities related to identifying and creating key risk and controls indicators. The Compliance Overview is available to compliance administrators and compliance managers, providing an executive view into compliance requirements, overall compliance, and compliance breakdowns.

Supporting information can be collected for indicators through automatic data collection or manual tasks. Indicator results are then used to create issues for controls, update risk scores, and provide supporting information for audit activities and control testing.
Indicators collect data to monitor controls and risks, and collect audit evidence. Indicators monitor a single control or risk.
Indicator templates
Indicator templates allow the creation of multiple indicators for similar controls or risks.

Authority Documents

Authority documents define policies, risks, controls, audits, and other processes to ensure adherence to the authoritative content.

Each authority document is defined in a record and the related lists on that record contain the individual conditions of the authority document.

The relationships of these authority document related list items are visible in the GRC Workbench in the Policy and Compliance Management application.


Citations contain the provisions of the authority document, which can be interrelated. Citations break down an authority document into manageable themes.

You can create citations or import them from UCF authority documents and then create any necessary relationships between the citations.
