What is a governance, risk and compliance strategy?
Governance, risk and compliance (GRC) strategy is a set of procedures that helps businesses achieve their goals and comply with ever-changing rules and regulations.
GRC is broadly covers the following:
How your business is directed and controlled through internal policy and strategy, especially through managing IT operations.
Looking for possible events that could be a risk to the business and prevent it from achieving its goals.
A business function responsible for making sure that your company’s policies align with internal policies, laws and regulations and that you follow them.
Why should I care?
The early 2000s saw trillions wiped from global economies, largely because organisations were using infective cultures that sliced strategy, management, risk and compliance systems.
With the rise of the digital age, managing private data has never been more important. As data has huge business potential, governments and international organisations look closely at how businesses manage data.
Data can also be subject to cyber attacks and this is why it is so important that your business follows the necessary regulations to reduce the risk of this happening.
The OCEG (Open Compliance and Ethics Group) saw the issue of poor governance systems and developed the GRC model for businesses to follow, with the aim of improving communications, compliance and strategies across every touchpoint in an organisation.
