GRC & Me Podcast: A Conversation on Risk Language


Asureti co-founder and Practice Director, Melissa Ryan, has been fascinated with language for as long as she can remember — and she has the spelling bee record to prove it.

Since she’s worked with people across business operations, the multi-faceted data protection expert has seen firsthand how a common language can bridge gaps between departments, allowing for truly valuable and meaningful conversations.

That technical jargon flying across your teams? It actually pulls your organization further apart.

Melissa uses a risk rating matrix, for example, to better facilitate communications with clients. These tools — or points of reference like taxonomies — contribute immeasurable value when they are defined through a shared language and then used across the business.
“We find that leaders who are leveraging these common definitions, these standard rating, and translation tools, and incorporating them into a GRC technology are truly finding enhanced value,” explains Melissa.

Here’s the key: Make sure the underlying structure, calculations, and design of the common language of your tools and technology are consistent.
