Four key Pillars of GRC

  • Policy and Compliance Management: It provides companies with a centralised procedure for policies, standards, and internal control procedures that are in accordance with external regulations and best practices.
  • Risk Management: Provides an organization with a centralized process for identifying, accessing, monitoring, and responding to risks that may cause damage. It also aids in the management of assessments, indicators, and issues.
  • Audit Management: Assists organizations with internal and external audits, as well as the creation and execution of engagements and the reporting of results to committees and boards of directors.

  • Many different types of records are automatically generated in GRC by user processes. Profiles, controls, risks, indicators, and control tests, for example, are generated automatically. 
  • When working on GRC domain separation, users must ensure that records are created in the correct domain and are visible to the appropriate set of users.
