Cadence of Risk Management: This is not your Father’s GRC Program

Governance, Risk Management & Compliance (GRC) is something every organization does, and it is important for every organization to do this well. Many of us have addressed aspects of GRC the same way we have for the past decade or two. Sure there are modifications to deal with new issues and developments, but the overall process and approach have remained the same. Times have changed, organizations are struggling to manage GRC in the context of dynamic and distributed business environments. External risk bearing down on the business as well as internal risk across strategy and operations requires new paradigms in managing risk effectively in the context of GRC. A particular challenge is the complexity of risk interrelationships. To effectively manage risk in the context of GRC involves having the right risk governance, strategy, processes, information, and technology architecture to see both the forest as well as the trees of risk. This is what GRC 20/20 refers to as the Cadence of Risk – managing risk to the rhythm and cycles of the organization. Join GRC 20/20 with host Riskonnect to learn the new and latest strategies in managing risk in the context of GRC and the broader business.

Specific items covered in this webinar include:

  • Understanding your organization in the context of risk
  • Mapping and showing relationship of risk
  • How risk is part of all organizations strategy and operations
  • The role of risk in context of GRC functions and processes
  • Developing a risk architecture to address risk strategy, process, information, and technology
