Governance Risk & Compliance

Governance, Risk Management, and Compliance (GRC) is an important and mandatory concept for an organization consisting of three major parts which are supervision, risk management and regulatory. This will lead an organization to reliable accomplishment, control uncertainty and an integrity. The governance process will ensure that critical management information sent to the management team is complete, adequate, accurate and timely to enable appropriate management decisions.

Risk management is a process that the management team will identify, analyze, and create an appropriate response to risks that may adversely affect the organization. Compliance will make sure all acts in the organization are aligned with organization’s requirement at the corporate level and organizations achieving their targets through relevant management processes and requirements such as laws, regulations, contracts, strategies and policies.

  2. Impact: level of damage or sequel of the risk
  3. Level of Risk: risk status from assessment

What is the relationship between IT and GRC?

Risk management and IT have become more and more intertwined in recent years, which means that IT and GRC must go hand-in-hand.

There are several reasons why IT plays such a large role in GRC strategies:

  • Cyber threats are ever-present and pose an ongoing risk to organizations in every sector
  • There is an increasing need for compliance when it comes to data and privacy
  • IT investments also require risk assessments and risk mitigation plans

Digital technology and digital innovation are become central pillars of the modern organization. And the greater the role that technology plays in the contemporary business world, the more important it will be to manage IT-related risk and compliance.

What is GRC?

GRC (for governance, risk, and compliance) is an organizational strategy for managing governance, risk management, and compliance with industry and government regulations. GRC also refers to an integrated suite of software capabilities for implementing and managing an enterprise GRC program.

GRC’s set of practices and processes provides a structured approach to aligning IT with business objectives. GRC helps companies effectively manage IT and security risks, reduce costs, and meet compliance requirements. It also helps improve decision-making and performance through an integrated view of how well an organization manages its risks.

What is IT Governance (ITG)?

IT governance (ITG) is defined as the processes that ensure the effective and efficient use of IT in enabling an organization to achieve its goals. IT demand governance (ITDG—what IT should work on) is the process by which organizations ensure the effective evaluation, selection, prioritization, and funding of competing IT investments; oversee their implementation; and extract (measurable) business benefits. ITDG is a business investment decision-making and oversight process, and it is a business management responsibility. IT supply-side governance (ITSG—how IT should do what it does) is concerned with ensuring that the IT organization operates in an effective, efficient and compliant fashion, and it is primarily a CIO responsibility.
