Governance Risk & Compliance (GRC)

Every organizational business function and process is governed in some way to meet objectives. Each of these objectives has risks, as well as controls that increase the likelihood of success (or minimize the impact of failure). These are the fundamental concepts of GRC. To maximize business performance, GRC programs are designed to help companies avoid major disasters and minimize the impact when avoidance is unlikely.
