Archer Content Library Updates: Q3-2013

Blog Post created by Mason Karrer Employee on Sep 23, 2013

Hello everybody! We are very pleased to announce the RSA Archer eGRC Content Library quarterly bundle is now available.


Earlier this month we released NIST SP 800-53 Revision 4. We’ve since added a major update to HIPAA as well as the latest version of the Monetary Authority of Singapore’s Technology Risk Management Guidelines. In support of these several additions to Archer Control Standards and the Archer Question Library are also included. For folks that haven’t yet obtained the NIST 800-53 update we’ve also packaged it the Q3 bundle for convenience.


Here's a snapshot of this quarter's full bundle:


  • Authoritative Sources:
    • The specified item was not found.
    • HIPAA Privacy and Security
    • The specified item was not found.


  • Control Standards:
    • 80+ updates and new standards


  • Questionnaire Assessments:
    • 600+ new questions


Something to note on the HIPAA content specifically – we have migrated the changes to the regulation into the existing authoritative source content, expanded the structure, remapped it, and developed a questionnaire assessment that also maps back to the authoritative source. So this import will update your existing HIPAA records with those changes. HIPAA sections which are no longer present in the current version of the regulation will be tagged as superseded in Archer so you can easily locate and remove them at your discretion.


The Release Notes for this quarter are posted on the RSA Archer Exchange and content import packs are available through Customer Support.


Thank you for your continued support in making RSA Archer the leader in GRC content. And check back soon for additional updates to the Information Security Forum’s [DEAD LINK /docs/DOC-15651]Standard of Good Practice and a forthcoming update to the Unified Compliance Framework.
