ServiceNow has a GRC component that enables enterprises to automate and gain a wider view of all governance, risk, and compliance processes in a simple interface with real-time analytics to mitigate risk in advance. In this article, we'll explain what ServiceNow GRC is and how it works when a business uses it for security-related operations.
Governance, Risk, and Compliance (GRC) is a management tool designed to administer an enterprise's regulatory needs. A proactive GRC platform continually monitors organizational change, communicates key concerns, anticipates hazards in real-time, and enables quick correction. It assists in determining the appropriate assets, responding to business risks, conducting audits, managing policies, and establishing controls. Moreover, a sophisticated application will decrease the time required to make business choices, minimize silos, reduce redundancy, and impose accountability.
At its most fundamental level, governance refers to the collection of rules, regulations, and procedures that guarantee company operations are aligned with business objectives. It entails ethical behavior, resource management, responsibility, and management controls.
Top management must be able to influence and guide all aspects of the company, including business divisions, in order to meet consumer wants and achieve overall corporate goals as a result of good corporate governance.
Governance is used to provide ownership for behavior and results. Conduct may be controlled by enforcing regulations governing ethical business operations and corporate citizenship. Effective governance identifies occupations in terms of business lines and evaluates workers on the basis of outcomes produced rather than obligations.
Organizations must identify, analyze, and manage all of their risks in order to stay on top of their game. To mitigate risk, a company must devote resources to mitigating, monitoring, and controlling the effect of adverse occurrences while maximizing the benefits of favorable events.
Corporate objectives may be met while minimizing risk and protecting value through the implementation of an organizational risk management program. Emphasizing the expectations of stakeholders and delivering unbiased information to those partners is a component of that work.
Compliance entails adherence to industry- and/or government-established norms, regulations, standards, and legislation. Failure to do so may prove to be problematic, costly errors, penalties, punishments, and litigation.
Regulatory compliance refers to the company's adherence to external laws, rules, and industry standards. A company's policies, laws, and internal controls are referred to as corporate or institutional compliance.
To develop a successful compliance program, firms must first determine which areas represent the highest risk and then allocate resources accordingly.
ServiceNow GRC is a comprehensive framework that automates processes with an eye toward dependencies and optimizes time vs. workflow management. The program enables organizations to upgrade their traditional corporate administration, risk, and compliance management processes. With the use of a dashboard, ServiceNow GRC centralizes all GRC management processes, giving companies with real-time insight into hazards.
Businesses are continuously battling to keep up with new compliance standards and the costs associated with expanding their workforce and infrastructure, which creates challenges in managing GRC, or Governance, Risk, and Compliance, obligations.
Using ServiceNow GRC, organizations can successfully manage their workflow by combining all risk management operations to one location that is available through a portal and gives real-time visibility of any concerns, risks, and exposures in advance, allowing them to make informed decisions.
GRC, a multilayered and interdependent application, helps firms to enhance their heritage way of coping with governance, risk, and compliance by analyzing the proper assets, administering policies, detecting any risks, building controls, and performing audits at regular intervals, thereby assuring improved business process and thus generating greater business efficiency.
Your GRC application is only as good as the business rules it is designed to enforce. Rules should be defined in advance and incorporated into your implementation strategy. Typical rules that you'll need to define include the following:
To keep up with changes in your business and risk profile, you'll need to examine and modernize your procedures on an ongoing basis. Ask the following questions about each of your controllers as part of this process:
If you're obliged to maintain controls across various regulatory authorities or systems, you've certainly seen that certain rules are repeated. Nevertheless, the majority of businesses continue to approach each legislation or framework as a separate set of controls, conducting numerous audits, duplicate testing, and repetitious evidence collecting procedures. Each year, these distinct activity streams cost your business millions of labor hours and exorbitant auditing expenses.
A more effective and cost-effective strategy is to build a single unified set of controls. By cross-mapping controls, you may validate a common control's compliance with numerous regulatory and practice guidelines frameworks.
Controls are intended to safeguard the possessions we cherish. When businesses do not identify what is important (or what is included and excluded from scope), controls are applied to just about everything, regardless of its relevance. This results in enormous quantities of unneeded effort and generates deficient noise, which can divert your organization's attention away from the actual hazards.
Identifying your risks—along with their effect and likelihood of occurrence—will assist your firm in concentrating on the correct things. Additionally, it can assist you in determining the exact business effect of a failed control. When resources are limited, risk identification can assist you in prioritizing control testing and remedial efforts.
Together with your integrated solution, develop a GRC plan that enables you to add GRC features in between inspection cycles to minimize business impact. Moreover, this technique promotes incremental adoption of technology, which often leads to greater acceptance rates.
Continuous monitoring enables you to spot control weaknesses as they occur and initiate remedy quickly. To put it another way, if you discover issues early on, you can prevent them from growing any worse. This considerably minimizes both the total risk and the work necessary to maintain compliance.
