Defining a GRC Program strategy is all about understanding the scope, vision and mission, as well as the program goals and supporting strategies. Getting this right depends on a practical stakeholder analysis of key needs. IT and security need to bring their goals to the table early on in the process, making the clear case for extending the GRC program and any GRC technology platform or tools to support a technology asset model for cloud, virtual and physical devices, along with integrations into IT and security monitoring systems.

Too often, GRC Programs are built on a foundation that ignores the assets and the detailed technical policies that make IT and security teams tick – don’t let your GRC program fall into that trap! Without near-real-time consolidating, monitoring and analysis at the application, data and infrastructure level, GRC processes for risk and compliance management won’t do much to help IT and security teams.

Governance, risk, and compliance (GRC) as a means to reduce process redundancy, deliver risk intelligence, and improve business performance has captured the attention of leadership teams across the enterprise. GRC is also now embracing IT and security teams, often catching them unprepared to champion their unique requirements.

So, what’s the impact of GRC in terms of how we manage IT and security programs? The impact can be significant according to Yo Delmar, vice president of GRC Solutions, MetricStream; a GRC program can bring great benefits, or major woes, if not approached with the right goals clearly in sight. IT and security teams need to be actively engaged at the table, collaboratively shaping the GRC program scope in order to create real value.
