The old silo-ed approach to corporate planning is woefully inadequate

The modern challenges faced by companies are increasingly calling for a new approach to risk management. Specifically, the old siloed approach to corporate planning is woefully inadequate for successfully navigating the 21st century business world. By adopting an integrated GRC approach, companies are able to leverage a range of benefits to improve their performance, resilience, and profitability.

The rising prominence of cyber and digital risk factors.

FERMA’s European Risk and Insurance Report provides insights into industry trends, as well as the concerns and goals of members. Of particular note in the 2016 report is the rising prominence of cyber and digital risk factors. Specifically, 55% of respondents cited data protection as their chief concern, making this issue the top European priority. Yet despite this concern, alarmingly, an even higher percentage (64%) reported that their companies do not have stand-alone cyber coverage.

A common misconception regarding IT GRC

A common misconception regarding IT GRC is that IT threats are only problems for governments and Fortune 500 companies; however, all businesses, regardless of size need to ensure adequate IT risk management strategies are in place. The rise of cloud networking, remote working, and digital collaboration have made companies more vulnerable than ever.

Context :

GRC has evolved greatly over the past few years. It has moved on from a legal obligation (Basel II) with risk mapping to become a real dynamic for the running of a company, useful to its management and applicable to all sectors by offering control management systems, shared action plans and incident, claim and/or audit management.
