Governance, Risk and Compliance

Governance, Risk and Compliance (GRC) brings together the management of overall governing strategies, risk mitigation, and compliance processes. The GRC program should be based on people, resources, processes, and technology required in the organization. For successful results, a single framework of the GRC program should be used across all areas of the organization that:

  • Includes a database containing all the regulatory requirements.
  • Incorporates regulatory compliance software on the cloud enabling users to decide and select the right regulatory process for the organization.
  • Creates a centralized repository for policies and procedures which ensures ease of accessing documents, sharing information, and managing version control.
  • Combines data between multiple departments, including business, IT, security, compliance, and auditing. Data retention is also accounted for as a metric in GRC.
  • Helps reduce duplication of activities.
  • Increases the system performance and effectiveness.
  • Automates the tasks which provides the ability to repeat the processes in a consistent manner.
  • Presents relevant reports to the board and senior management.
