With businesses facing increasing pressure from customers, regulators and auditors to demonstrate better compliance, manage risk and provide assurance, Acuity has announced the release of two new applications for its popular STREAM Integrated Risk Manager software.
Acuity’s new STREAM ISO 27001 application is designed to help users comply and gain certification to ISO 27001:2013, using the full range of STREAM’s dashboarding and graphical reporting to measure, monitor and report on compliance with the latest ISO standard. Originally published in 2005 and updated in September 2013 by the International Organisation for Standardisation, ISO 27001 is the recognised global standard for information security management.
In response to growing demand for greater visibility and assurance that company supply chains are not a source of unacceptable risk, Acuity has also released its new Supply Chain Risk Management application. As part of the popular STREAM Integrated Risk Manager software, users can model their supply chain and benefit from enhanced decision making, though visibility of supplier compliance and levels of risk.
STREAM scales seamlessly from a single-user edition to an Enterprise-wide, multi-user edition and can be accessed via a web browser, mobile device including iPad, iPhone and Android, or traditional client–server architecture. It can be deployed in-house or provided as a hosted SaaS service and a free single-user edition is available to help users get started.
STREAM customers include BP, United Nations, CSC Computer Sciences, Siemens, The Cooperative Banking Group, Fujitsu Services and the Department for Education. “Risk management is a core competence for any public or private sector organisation,” said Simon Marvell, Partner at Acuity Risk Management. “STREAM is designed to support integrated risk and compliance applications such as information security, supply chain risk, health & safety and environmental management, as well as provide a holistic, multi-application Enterprise Risk Management (ERM) solution. Organisations that rely on manual processes and spreadsheets can migrate these time consuming risk and compliance processes into STREAM and also interface with third party solutions to maximise return on investment.”
