Your GRC Journey in Five Important Steps

  • Your GRC Journey in Five Important Steps-

    GRC Program implementation planning is all about developing a multi-year roadmap with the right gating factors, supported by a rolling 12-month action plan. Often your organization’s program management office (PMO) will be involved, helping to define project dependencies, charters, critical milestones and decision criteria. It is important to define the appropriate GRC program team structure, roles, and responsibilities, assign the right resources, and provide a solid onboarding program for new team members, users and stakeholders as the program rolls out. The team may grow over time, so advanced thinking and planning as to when new resources will be needed will be critical to the program’s success.

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.
