									Manage IT GRC Related Issues with IT Compliance and Security Solution

GRC is defined as “an integrated, holistic approach to organization-wide GRC ensuring that
an organization acts ethically correct and in accordance with its risk appetite, internal
policies and external regulations through the alignment of strategy, processes, technology
and people, thereby improving efficiency and effectiveness." This aptly summarizes the true
essence of GRC.

Governance, risk management, and compliance or simply GRC received widespread
attention with the enactment of US Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOX). When major corporate and
accounting scandals rocked the American economy, the federal government was forced to
enact SOX to ensure the accuracy of financial information. However, today the focus of IT
GRC is not limited to ensuring SOX compliance alone but to enhance business performance
through improved decision-making and strategic planning.

Businesses require accurate, complete and timely information to make informed, efficient
business decisions. Usually teams entrusted with the responsibility of implementing the
various GRC processes and functions work in silos leading to lack of coordination and
communication between the teams. This communication gap results in the failure of
effectively capturing the true state of affairs, which in turn prevents the initiation of any
corrective action.

security, compliance, and risk management and provide automation and integration of
policy controls to manage security and IT GRC related issues. The combined solution of
