Why Read This Report

Successful businesses universally strive to achieve better corporate governance, more effective measurement and management of risk, and greater assurance that compliance requirements are met. Whether or not these efforts bear the governance, risk, and compliance (GRC) label, it's important to understand the underlying benefits of coordinating these historically discrete functions to achieve greater efficiency and insight. Forrester offers deep research into how GRC can be applied successfully through strategy and technology, in key areas of the organization or across the entire business. This document serves as an overview of Forrester's GRC research. Its goal is to provide a taxonomy for how Forrester defines GRC and guide you to more in-depth reports on best practices, vendor selection, trends, forecasts, and more.
