Governance, Risk and Compliance (GRC) are the three most important components in managing your security program. Often confused as a being a security tool, is the practice of defining the security governance within your organization (policies, standards and procedures), identifying and determining the risks that may be found within the environment and ensuring that the organization is compliance with its own governance as well as any laws and regulations that the business may be required to comply with. Without an even balance of these three pieces, security programs simply turn cycles putting out fires. With a strong GRC in place, the security program is running more efficiently and effectively. .
