Are you asking the right questions of your GRC vendor?

You should be demanding the features and benefits that will make your program and people as effective as they can be.

Let’s look at some examples.

With LogicGate, you can start with our industry-standard best practice templates. You can then configure them with our visual workflow builder to align with your company’s unique process, complete with custom fields and assigned user roles.

But the power of LogicGate doesn’t end there.

Say you start with your control audit process against SOC2 and ISO 27002 requirements. With LogicGate, these automatically map together through the Secure Controls Framework. No manual mapping required. 

Now let’s fast forward a few months. Let’s say you’re getting close to signing a large contract with the government. Your organization needs to meet NIST 800-53 requirements to demonstrate FISMA compliance in order to move forward with the contract. Now what? You’ll want to link that framework to SOC2 and ISO 27002 to accelerate this process. 

With LogicGate, you can easily add these frameworks to your program and report on your compliance coverage. It’s also no sweat to change and adjust your existing data structure over time. This means you can start with the data structure you have, and look to the future with confidence knowing you’ll be able to add to and customize your program as it evolves. The same goes every time your team needs to add in a new application.

What happens when you need to find the different activities associated with each framework, such as a control evaluation, risk, exception, or policy? With most GRC vendors, you might need to work backward through ISO, SOC2, and the Secure Controls Framework just to find an item. 

That’s a lot of extra clicking. Why not go straight to it?

With LogicGate, you can. In the LogicGate platform, you can start anywhere within your data structure and find the information that it’s linked to. For example, you can go directly to a SOC2 or ISO requirement and see every activity or asset that’s associated with it, such as a policy, exception, risk, system, internal control, or evidence you have gathered. No more endless clicking through various record hierarchies just to get to the information you need.

Are you asking whether your GRC vendor can do these things? If so, are you asking how much  it will cost? What about how long it will take? How easy is it to actually perform them?

With LogicGate, you get a flexible platform that’s ready to grow and adapt with your program—whatever the future holds.
