Governance, Risk & Compliance (GRC)

Governance, Risk & Compliance (GRC) is increasingly becoming a mandate and/or business practice necessity in many companies. Governance is primarily the responsibility of senior executives to ensure that everyone in the company follows defined business processes and policies to support organizational transparency. Risk Management identifies potential business risks, sets relevant tolerances, and establishes controls to monitor and mitigate risk. Compliance ensures that a company knows which legislative and industry regulatory mandates it must observe, establishes requisite compliance within business processes, records and reports on compliance with those mandates. GRC initiatives coordinate and integrate multiple business processes and organizational areas into one coherent program. Software applications to manage GRC provide an effective means to accomplish what could otherwise be an expensive and daunting overhead for companies.
