LogicGate’s Year in Review

It’s been a successful year at LogicGate. We owe a lot of our success to our customers, the LogicGate team, and to our shared commitment to our  product development priorities:

  • Making things easier for our end users, administrators, CISOs, and directors, and their executive stakeholders
  • Creating a seamless experience for end users
  • Helping our customers keep up with the constant and rapid pace of changing regulations and risk

Make Everything Easier for End Users

To deliver the best experience possible to our customers' end users, we continually push ourselves to optimize and improve platform functionality alongside UX.

We’ve also added secure external user functionality so vendors and partners can work directly within Risk Cloud. Additionally, we’ve deployed in-line editing with Office 365, so it’s easier to update and track changes to essential documents.

Upcoming End User Improvements

To improve the platform experience for end users, we're working on advanced Risk Cloud integrations that work seamlessly with our customer’s tech stacks. With insights from our customer-only community, Risk Crowd, we're constantly improving Risk Cloud to help customers better manage their GRC programs and save time.

Soon, we’ll launch access-level-based home screens that are customized to the end users' specific roles. As a result, they’ll immediately see information relevant to their role upon log in, including items needing attention and important metrics.

Future updates will further improve collaboration among external and internal users. These updates include:

  • Capability to tag other users in comments
  • Easier ways to edit reports
  • Time-based reporting and tracking capabilities

Each of these updates will make Risk Cloud a better solution for end users and improve any organization’s GRC management program.

Make Everything Easier for Admins -- Our Power Users

We understand different user types have different needs. So, we’re giving our customers more tools to work more efficiently and effectively inside Risk Cloud.

We’ve also launched tools to help users make, test, and document changes, improvements, and additions to existing workflows without disrupting daily processes. Users can control how changes are deployed so they can be rolled out in batches or outside working hours. 

New change-management capabilities make it simpler to grow and iterate current solutions, empowering organizations to keep up with the ever-evolving regulatory and risk landscape.

Upcoming Platform Improvements

The product team also shared several exciting roadmap items at Agility 2022:

  • Improved Risk Cloud user and permission management with SCIM integration
  • Additional updates to improve reliability and visibility
  • Widespread improvements to the Risk Cloud user experience

New Customer Services

First, we’ll soon launch a Technical Account Manager offering, which is a new role within the org. Technical Account Managers (TAM) will be a dedicated point of contact for the customer starting at the beginning of their contract with a focus on understanding and executing holistic GRC Program goals in Risk Cloud.They will provide technical expertise and leverage best practices to drive efficiency and outcomes with the Risk Cloud platform. Their primary goal is to best support customers with interconnected and complex Applications to help drive successful implementations, adoption and expansion.

Second, new GRC Maturity Workshops will help our customers learn how to mature their GRC programs over time. Risk Cloud is a powerful GRC platform, and these workshops will teach users how to use it to reach that next level of maturity.

Risk Cloud Exchange (RCX) Improvements Enable Customer Growth 

Later this year, Risk Cloud customers may now install draft Applications directly from Risk Crowd Exchange. Customers can select their Application of choice, click Install Now, and explore new use cases on their schedule – all with just a few clicks. 

Accessibility Improvements and Policy Updates

Approximately 15% of the world’s population has some form of disability. We believe anyone with a disability should have access to Risk Cloud, so we’ve launched key accessibility improvements and policy updates so every stakeholder can contribute to their organization’s GRC program.

Our platform must be perceivable, operable, understandable, and robust for everyone. A few accessibility improvements include:

  • Updated inline notifications to provide clarity when it matters most
  • UI enhancements to make our applications more accessible and user-friendly
  • Clear standards for accessibility to ensure everyone can use our platform equally

Upcoming Improvements to Better Understand Cyber Risks

Identifying, mitigating, and monitoring cyber risks is critical to a comprehensive GRC program. Therefore, we’ll soon launch new purpose-built Applications for our Cyber Risk Management and Controls Compliance solution. 

This suite of Applications allow our customers to address cyber threats, vulnerabilities, and risks, then evaluate the effectiveness of associated controls to prioritize response effectively. These new Applications will be available on November 1, 2022.

Let’s take a closer look at some upcoming cyber risk management improvements:

  • Automated Control Evidence Collection: This new feature enables security teams to visualize, understand, and optimize their cybersecurity posture – and then take action where needed to mitigate risk across their extended enterprise.
  • Quantification Aggregation with Reference Data: Comparative analysis, quantification aggregation, and applicable reference data are essential to understanding an organization's cyber risks. We’re adding these capabilities to Risk Cloud Quantify® to  improve our customers’ risk management programs.

Cyber risks have taken center stage for many organizations' GRC programs. Our upcoming improvements will help customers mitigate and understand these risks to both protect their companies and ensure compliance.
