IT Governance, Risk & Compliance

Automate the assessment, scoring and remediation of internal IT security and privacy controls for compliance

Governance, risk and compliance (GRC) is, "the integrated collection of capabilities that enable an organization to reliably achieve objectives (governance), address uncertainty (risk) and act with integrity (compliance)," across financial, legal and IT domains.

Specific to IT, GRC includes:

  • Governance: Defining business goals and arranging business processes and organizational oversight to ensure the business achieves its goals.
  • Risk: Employing the principles of risk management in defense of those goals, for example implementing IT risk management processes to address potential cyber risks to the business.
  • Compliance: Adhering with regulatory and industry frameworks that require your organization’s “G” and “R” processes to align with proven and accepted practices.
