RSA ANNOUNCES AVAILABILITY OF RSA ARCHER REGULATORY CONTENT ANALYSIS USE CASE

RSA Archer Regulatory Content Analysis delivers tailored insight and efficient analysis for new or updated regulations. The use case utilizes Natural Language Processing (NLP) and a patent-pending algorithm to examine how an organization has previously implemented compliance programs by analyzing current regulation and control mappings. It then uses this analysis to provide suggested control mappings for the new or updated regulation that an end user can quickly review and confirm or reject within the mapping interface. 

 

Key features include:

  • Automatic suggestions for applicable controls for new regulations based on your existing controls environment
  • Processing and analysis of text-based regulations utilizing Natural Language Processing and machine learning 
  • Highlighting of similar new and existing regulations for the analysts’ reference
  • Manual mapping of unmatched content utilizing advanced search and mapping features

 

The use case is available only as a SaaS application for all RSA Archer on-premise and hosted implementations.

 

To learn more, please read the Product Advisory, and the Blog, “RSA Regulatory Analysis Delivers Efficiency Leveraging Natural Language Processes and Machine Learning,” authored by Corey Carpenter, RSA

 

Join us too for the “Regulatory Content Analysis” Free Friday Tech Huddle on September 27 @ 11:00 am ET; registration link coming soon.

 RSA ARCHER COMMUNITIES: ‘QUICK LINKS’ (WHICH INCLUDES ALL PRIOR YEARS' RSA CHARGE AND RSA ARCHER SUMMIT PRESENTATIONS) AND ‘QUICK TIPS’ - CHECK THEM OUT!

RSA Archer Quick Links and Quick Tips were recently updated with the release of RSA Archer 6.6.  and will be updated with the RSA Charge 2019 Presentations in mid-September. Quick Links is designed to help you with access to the 'most popular' searched and downloaded links on both RSA Archer communities  - RSA Archer Suite and RSA Archer Customer & Partner Communities.

 

Quick Tips provides you some 'tips and tricks' that will save you time when participating in various Actions on the communities - everything from using the Navigator tool to locate content that is right ‘for me’ based on my role and level of Archer expertise, to creating your Cases (My RSA), to receiving critical Advisories, and introducing you to enhancement requests on Ideas for RSA Archer.

 

The documents reside on the public RSA Archer Suite and include the RSA Link FAQs; to access, anytime, simply click on the magnifying glass and type the word Quick – it’s that easy!

 

We hope you find these documents helpful! As a little teaser to visit the Quick Links document, here are the links to the last few years of RSA Charge and RSA Archer Summit customer presentations:
