Why do we need GRC?

Governance, Risk and Compliance refers to a strategy for managing an organisation’s overall governance, enterprise risk management and compliance with regulations. Governance, Risk and Compliance is a structured approach to aligning IT with business objectives, while effectively managing risk and meeting compliance requirements.

A well-planned Governance, Risk and Compliance strategy comes with lots of benefits, including improved decision-making, more optimal IT investments, elimination of silos, and reduced fragmentation among divisions and departments. Many organisations consult a framework for guidance in developing and refining their Governance, Risk and Compliance functions rather than creating one from scratch; frameworks and standards provide building blocks that organisations can tailor to their environment.

ISO 27001

ISO 27001 is a specification for an information security management system built on a framework of policies and procedures that includes all legal, physical, and technical controls involved in an organisation’s information risk management processes. ISO 27001 uses a risk-based approach and is technology-neutral. The specification includes details for documentation, management responsibility, internal audits, continual improvement, and corrective and preventive action. The standard requires cooperation among all sections of an organisation.
