The Toolkit contains the following practical and powerful enablers with new and updated Governance Risk and Compliance specific requirements:


STEP 1: Get your bearings

Start with...

  • The latest quick edition of the Governance Risk and Compliance Self Assessment book in PDF containing 49 requirements to perform a quickscan, get an overview and share with stakeholders.

Organized in a data driven improvement cycle RDMAICS (Recognize, Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve, Control and Sustain), check the…

  • Example pre-filled Self-Assessment Excel Dashboard to get familiar with results generation

Then find your goals...


STEP 2: Set concrete goals, tasks, dates and numbers you can track

Featuring 878 new and updated case-based questions, organized into seven core areas of process design, this Self-Assessment will help you identify areas in which Governance Risk and Compliance improvements can be made.

Examples; 10 of the 878 standard requirements:

  1. New objects as the plethora of different device types, devices, gateways and IoT platforms need to be maintained because they are decentralized trust servers of the organizations using them. Management and governance enables organizations to meet both compliance and business requirements. Will your IAM system handle the increased number of relationships between users, devices, services and policies?

  2. It is clear that the CSP will face a large number of requests from its customers to prove that the CSP is secure and reliable. There a number of audit and compliance considerations for both the CSP and the customer to consider in cloud computing. First, which compliance framework should a CSP adopt to satisfy its customers and manage its own risks?

  3. Do you look for vendors whose solutions are designed to facilitate your IWMS objectives. Do their solutions promote efficiencies, reduce costs, mitigate compliance-related risks and speed time to market?

  4. Has management taken a portfolio view to assure that the selected risk responses have reduced the organizations overall residual risk to a level within the identified risk appetite for the organization?

  5. Has management adopted an appropriate and cost effective array of risk responses at the activity level of the organization to reduce inherent risks to levels in line with established risk tolerances?

  6. Considerations: To what degree are elements of the risk framework, taxonomy and assessments aligned from an information and reporting standpoint (without unnecessary data replication and massaging)?

  7. Many organizations are unsure who should be in charge of managing third-party risk: in your organization, is it a function of procurement, legal, compliance, risk management or information security?

  8. Another discipline that deserves attention in the GRC domain is the choice of the communication medium. Does the risk report always have to be an Excel matrix or a force-ranked hierarchical list?

  9. From a high level, the value and efficiencies of integrated CPM and GRC are clear. But business happens at the level of detail. How does an integrated approach improve your day-to-day operations?

  10. Policy compliance is closely related to IT governance. Compliance has much to do with defining, controlling and governing security efforts. How does your organization respond to security events?

    So far I have only had time to browse it very superficially, but form that it looks very comprehensive and at the same time practical. As soon as I find time I will do a short item on it on my literature pages and point risk management professionals in your direction. Have a great day, and all the best!!
