Governance, Risk & Compliance
Ensure Constant Compliance
Governance, Risk & Compliance (GRC) is an integrated collection of capabilities that enable an organization to reliably achieve objectives, address uncertainty and act with integrity. GRC can help your organisation align its IT activities to business goals, manage risk effectively and stay ahead of compliance. A well-planned GRC strategy can deliver solid benefits, namely improved decision-making, more efficiency in IT investments and the elimination of silos, which reduces fragmentation between departments.
Because cybersecurity is such an important driver in governance there are a number of areas where GRC and cybersecurity interact. Data privacy is one such driver and over the last few years we have seen new data regulation and new data privacy strategies applied by governments globally, the European GDPR legislation is a good example of this and a forewarning of legislation to come. There is also a strong link between the risk element of GRC and cybersecurity because security risks are such an important factor in the overall risk exposure of the organisation. This is where ITSEC can help, our GRC team is experienced at helping organisations get in front and ahead of GRC best practice.
