How do you implement GRC?

  1. Step 0: everyone’s input and use cases 
  2. Determine the total value gained by using a centralized GRC platform
    1. Missing data 
    2. Duplicate processes
    3. Duplicate data
    4. Manual steps that can be removed or automated
    5. Workflows to assist heavily manual areas such as communications, emails, approvals, and reporting
  3. Identify operational gaps to prioritize the areas you need to improve.
  4. Get your team on board with an effectively communicated plan.
  5. Build a strong foundation to support your GRC program
  6. Deploy a standardized GRC implementation across the board.
  7. Let the GRC framework evolve and grow after it's implemented.
