IT GRC Process Management Pack for System Center Service Manager
The IT GRC Process Management Pack for System Center Service Manager provides end-to-end compliance management and automa-tion 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 GRC Process Management Pack for System Center Service Manager—combined with the IT Compliance Management Series—helps customers understand and bind complex business objectives to their Microsoft infrastructure in an operationally efficient manner.
IT Compliance Management Series
The IT Compliance Management Series—a combination of IT Compliance Management Libraries for Windows Server® 2008, Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows® 7, and Microsoft System Center—provides prescriptive guidance to help IT pros configure Microsoft products to address specific IT governance, risk, and compliance (GRC) requirements. This series helps to bridge the knowledge gap for IT pros by translating auditor expectations into real IT tasks through the use of control activities that are specific to a particular technology or platform. In addition to Microsoft System Center Service Manager and the Microsoft IT GRC Process Management Pack for System Center Service Manager, the series will help IT pros understand and bind complex control objectives to their Microsoft infrastructure.
The series takes advantage of the ability of 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 bind complex IT GRC re-quirements, stated as control objectives, to actual product configuration settings and events. System Center is then able to act as an IT GRC management and over-sight solution for an organization.
