GRC is a driver for growth and security.

In the business world, compliance can carry negative connotations, yet many don’t realise it can be a driver for security and growth.

Governance, Risk, and Compliance (GRC) strategy and solutions are about understanding the regulatory framework under which your organisation operates. It helps you find the what and the why in order to identify gaps and remediate quickly so you can avoid fines, remain competitive and grow securely.

The scale of fines is continually increasing alongside the increased personal liability of leadership and the board in the wake of breaches. These days, meeting corporate governance and compliance requirements are a matter of brand protection. Whether you’re a bank, retailer or healthcare provider, GRC maturity is required to reduce risk and reliably achieve objectives.

Benefits of GRC:

Build your reputation

A strong security culture can act as a market differentiator. Having a GRC strategy will help manage your reputation and build trust in the market.
Give your customers, partners and supply chain peace of mind that you meet best-practice standards as well as mandated compliance, obligations and laws and regulations – including breach notification and privacy laws. Having a GRC strategy in place also helps to expand opportunities to work with or for typically larger organisations that require compliance to certain standards.

Launch faster

Risk assessments can help new businesses or products identify flaws and test them against industry recognised standards from the beginning, saving time and money, whilst aligning with business objectives.

Improve your board reporting

Sekuro GRC services help provide governance and structures for reporting to the board on cybersecurity and information security management in line with industry best practice.

Avoid fines

Nobody likes paying fines. By having GRC strategies and solutions in place, you can reduce risk and ensure all of our obligations are met and fines are avoided.

Optimise your spend

By understanding the why, GRC solutions help you to find the right processes and technologies for your business that meet compliance requirements.
They will also provide a framework to manage security programmes and projects, help prioritise security actions as well as optimise (and justify) security expenditure.

Governance, Risk, and Compliance (GRC) FAQs

What is Governance, Risk, and Compliance (GRC)?

Governance, Risk, and Compliance (GRC) is a discipline under information security management that leverages best practice frameworks and a set of processes, procedures, and technologies to help organisations protect the most precious assets and reliably achieve security objectives whilst managing information security risks. Integrated GRC solutions help organisations meet data and privacy regulations whilst strengthening their cybersecurity posture.

Why is GRC important?

Not understanding GRC requirements can put an organisation at risk of data breaches and heavy fines, alongside reputational damage for non-compliance or unethical practices.

What is a GRC framework?

GRC frameworks are models that help organisations manage their information security and compliance requirements. They often include components that support the alignment of its technology footprint with business goals, while managing risk, considering regulatory and other business requirements.

Is it ‘Governance, Risk and Compliance’, or ‘Governance, Risk, and Compliance’?

Some say the term covers an organisation’s approach across three practices: governance, risk management, and compliance. So we say the judicious use of an oxford comma is the way to go.
