Leveraging Holistic GRC for Compliance, Audit Preparation, and Business Enablement

Feature by Nick Kathmann, LogicGate CISO

Governance, risk, and compliance (GRC) is often treated as a separate entity from security. But compliance experts know that the two are hopelessly intertwined—after all, what’s the point of a security control if it isn’t directly tied to mitigating a risk? Still, not all risk programs are created equal—and not every organization recognizes the critical role that GRC plays alongside departments like operations, security, legal, and business operations. A holistic approach to GRC can allow organizational leaders to better understand how their decisions will impact the organization’s overall risk profile—and, ultimately, determine whether those decisions are in the best interest of the business.
