By Giovanni Sparacio

Last week, Edgile, the leading cyber risk and regulatory compliance consulting firm and ServiceNow Elite partner, announced the Q1 2022 release of its Automated Regulatory Compliance (ArC) Content Service for ServiceNow.

Edgile’s award-winning ArC service delivers more than 650 harmonized laws, regulations and industry standards and automatically loads them into ServiceNow IRM.

The Q1 2022 report includes actionable information on mandates and precedents, enabling an up-to-date risk and compliance readiness posture that is proactive instead of reactive. ArC subscribers also receive a quarterly summary of noteworthy regulatory news, risk trends and enforcement activities.

“Client feedback has been very positive. Financial services clients for FSI-specific mandates and privacy across all industries are two in particular that are getting tremendous value from the content updates.”
