					   Assessing Risk Management Portfolio for Effective Compliance




IT risk managers are responsible for ensuring a secure and compliant business
environment. Hence, they are constantly in search of resourceful, credible and result-
oriented risk management processes that can facilitate risk forecasting and risk intensity
assessment to prevent security lapses. However, mitigating risks and ensuring complete
security are possible through effective compliance, with conscious efforts to seal security
gaps throughout the enterprise.

So, there is a need for organizations to maintain stringent security parameters and
plug in every gap. Realizing these requirements of the IT realm, organizations are now
investing in highly sophisticated tools with analytical capabilities, which not only prevent
known threats but also detect unknown threats. These tools provide advanced threat
management support that can help identify potential risks and recommend strategies to
curb them.

Compliance management software platforms simplify operations by offering integrative
features which deal with every component of the enterprise that is directly or indirectly
related to IT security. They not only provide end-to-end solutions for all concerns
related to IT security Compliance, audit and risk management needs, but also prohibit
unauthorized access to sensitive and confidential data thereby ensuring complete
security.




The software also generates reports of the existing compliance status, and also
periodically schedules compliance audits, in order to provide valuable vulnerability
scanning and management capabilities. This not only helps in detecting compliance gaps
but also in implementing remedial measures. These solutions also improve transparency
in organizations, which in turn provides high visibility into processes and builds awareness
about the existing security status. And that’s not all. While these tools ensure efficient
execution of compliance regulations in an enterprise, they also strictly monitor their
progress.

Today’s business scenario and economic climate make it essential for organizations to
make every possible attempt to ensure security. However, not all security software or
GRC solutions can offer complete protection. But some advanced tools in the market,
possess the capabilities mentioned above. With such competent solutions, enterprises can
be thoroughly protected. Automated compliance management software has come a long
way to include several advanced features which can cater to every aspect of governance
risk and compliance needs. Such a software solution along with a compelling risk
management portfolio can help build a secure, positive and progressive IT environment.
