What is GRC?

Governance, risk and compliance (GRC) refers to a company’s strategy for managing their organization's overall governance, enterprise risk management and compliance with regulations.

Investing in governance, risk, and compliance at your company can have many benefits: better risk analysis, faster decision making, consistent communications, and more efficient risk mitigation across the business.


Using a GRC tool allows you to create and coordinate policies and controls and automatically monitor them, creating efficiencies across your compliance efforts.
