Introduction to GRC

Organizations of all sizes are struggling to manage the complexity of risks. Stakeholders demand not only high performance but also transparency in business operations.

In today’s unpredictable world one small misstep can cause a complete mess, which can ruin your reputation and business.


Organizations know that breaches, business interruptions, or noncompliance could cause significant and long-lasting costs on their businesses. Hence, it is important to maximize the efficiency and effectiveness of teams responsible for GRC operations. An effective Risk Management Process is an integral part of any business without which the organization will stumble in the long run.


Ensuring compliance, assessing risk, and handling vendor relationships require managing huge amounts of cross-organizational data, and the cost of staff time to carry out these activities can quickly become untenable. However, even with these high costs, organizations are still finding it challenging to minimize risks to the extent required.

Working with multiple customers across the Middle East we have observed some of the key challenges faced by organizations such as :

Information siloes

Information Siloes

Information siloes leads to disconnected data, building incomplete pictures of risk and lack of context around IT, security and business risks. Employees take weeks to compile reports manually which is immediately outdated leading to Inaccurate Insights into what is actually happening with business risks.

Lack of ownership

Lack of Ownership    

Compliance teams ask the same questions over and over again for each individual compliance initiative while deficiencies from previous audits lack ownership and are unresolved. Lack of Ownership leads to unresolved Issues as no one takes responsibility for risk.

Limited risk visibility

Limited Risk Visibility

Lack of a common risk language and an ability to view risks holistically forces management to take less informed decisions.

Manual Process

Manual Processes    

Wastage of time and resources as teams manually collect and process a large amount of data using spreadsheets and emails.

Increasing complexity of regulations

Increasing Complexity of Regulations

Companies are under pressure to identify regulations associated with its business and IT functions, and impose strict compliance and reporting requirements. Many organizations are ill equipped to confidently identify, prioritize and respond to issues with the magnitude and volume of regulatory requirements.

Lack of oversight on Third Parties

Lack of Oversight on Third Parties

Use of third-party vendors has increased rapidly over the past years and managing third-party risk is becoming a challenge to most of the organizations. These risks can have significant impact, including information security breaches, financial losses, business interruption, and reputational damage.
