Compliance frameworks sometimes look good on the surface with each one trying to convince you that they’re the real deal. But just because one looks good, it doesn’t mean that it is an accurate representation.
There are a lot of people out there telling you that they use a compliance framework, but that’s not necessarily true. These might even say “framework” in the title but were actually written as standalone documents. Consider, is your framework static or dynamic? Are they taking a “best guess” or do they have a scientific approach and can show proof of their mapping skills? To be a framework, it should supply a structure, a methodology, and the evidence you need to prove compliance. Does yours?
