How can you link compliance frameworks and industry standards to the reality of your operations?

Connect the ‘paper world’ with the reality of day-to-day operations

The challenge

Linking compliance frameworks and industry standards to the reality of your operations

While compliance is very important and compliance frameworks are valuable, they are sometimes disconnected to what is really happening in your organization. When we talk about frameworks, we think of: ISO 31000, ISO 27001, API, Seveso, JCI, Energy Institute Process Safety Framework, IATA and EASA regulation COBIT, COSO, you name it. How do you link compliance frameworks and industry standards to the reality of your operations?

The solution

An integrated approach for compliance frameworks, operations and verification of activities

How do you connect the paper world with the reality of day-to-day operations? The solution is an integrated approach for compliance frameworks, operations and verification of activities. But you can also utilize best practices, codes of practice, corporate guidelines and industry norms in the same manner. Let us show you how.

How does it work?

An integrated approach

  • Link the ‘paper compliance world’ to the real world where risk reduction measures are actually implemented.
  • Join the two worlds of compliance auditing and performance auditing.

Optimize your verification efforts

  • Demonstrate where in your bowtie diagrams the required control objectives are being managed.
  • Determine your maturity level by looking at the performance data of linked barriers.
  • Reduce the audit workload by identifying where compliance frameworks overlap.

Store all your compliance frameworks in a single repository

Having all compliance frameworks in one place will give you one complete overview of all requirements that you have to deal with.

BowTieServer provides an instant overview of all external and internal compliance frameworks that your (part of the) organization needs to comply to. Per framework, it shows how compliant you are according to the standards.

See how well the requirements are implemented

Understand how the ‘measurable elements’ or regulatory requirements link to activities and barriers or controls of your mission critical operations.

Identify gaps where control objectives are not yet covered by your management system.

Understand how well frameworks are working in practice

Understand how well barriers or controls perform, by linking them to data coming from expert judgment, audits, inspections, incident analyses and maintenance data.
