What is Virtual Governance, Risk, and Compliance (GRC)?

Virtual Governance, risk, and compliance (vGRC) is the collective set of different security services that help organizations maintain their confidentiality, integrity, availability, and privacy, and address uncertainty with respect to their business objectives. A well-planned GRC strategy with an integrated approach goes a long way. Think of it as internal risk management and auditing system that helps companies manage cyber risk.

Without a doubt, the biggest driver for GRC is regulation. While traditional industries such as banking, insurance, healthcare, and telecoms have borne the brunt of regulation in the past. Today’s digital age is fuelling a risk in regulation that touches all entities, large or small

The use of data, particularly personally identifiable information, has huge business potential as well as a risk of abuse. Therefore, governments and international agencies are having a closer eye on how digital businesses manage data. The rise in cyber-attacks, which expose personal data, as well as growing awareness by individuals and civil rights organizations, has shed new light on how companies manage information and technology through processes, people, and culture.

Regardless of the industry, your organization operates in, a competent GRC program can mean the difference between success and failure. Whether your organization exists in the insurance industry, banking, or finance, the risk is always right around the corner. Not to mention stakeholders have more demands than ever before.

First, let’s break down the acronym GRC into its three main components.


GRC Governance is making sure that the day-to-day organizational activities and critical capabilities are aligned with the overall business goals of the organization. Usually carried out by senior management, governance involves providing control mechanisms, policies, and procedures that allow management decisions to be effectively and systematically executed.

  • The constant updating and renewing of regulations, forcing regular updates to IT security governance
  • Understand and approach cybersecurity as an enterprise-wide risk management issue
  • Align information security strategy with business objectives.
  • establish an enterprise-wide risk management framework with adequate staffing and budget
  • Review and approve an IT strategic plan that aligns with the overall business strategy.
  • Promote effective IT governance.

  • Oversee and receive updates on major IT projects, IT budgets, IT priorities, and overall IT performance.
  • Oversee the adequacy and allocation of IT resources for funding and personnel.
  • Approve policies to escalate and report significant security incidents to the Board of Directors.
  • Hold management accountable for identifying, measuring, and mitigating IT risks.
  • Provide independent, comprehensive, and effective audit coverage of IT controls.

The goal of risk management is to identify any threats to the company’s objectives. Whether these are cybersecurity threats or regulatory mistakes, the objective is to foster a unified approach that puts your business units in a position to succeed.

Why Does Your Organization Need vGRC?

Organizations face a rapidly changing and increasingly complex business climate. Whether you’re part of a large corporation, government agency, small business, or non-profit, you’ll face numerous challenges, including:

  • Constant changes to regulations and enforcement that severely impact business operations
  • Stakeholder demand for strong performance outcomes, consistent growth, and transparent processes
  • Growing costs of addressing compliance requirements and managing risk
  • Increase of third-party relationships and associated governance challenges
  • Potential legal and financial consequences resulting from lack of effective oversight and overlooking critical threats

GRC Methodology of ISecServ

Over Approach

As has been stated before, GRC is best implemented in a holistic manner that encompasses the entire organization. This does not necessarily mean that an umbrella unit is required for coordination, even though that might work for certain types of entities. The iSecServ has designed a risk-based approach called vGRC as a Service that integrates the various sub-disciplines of governance, risk, audit, compliance, ethical hacking, Incident Handling & Response, and IT Business Continuity into a unified approach. This Model is made up of four components:

  • LEARNabout organization station context, culture, and key stakeholders to inform objectives, strategy, and actions.
  • ALIGNstrategy with objectives, and actions with strategy, by using effective decision-making that addresses values, opportunities, threats, and requirements.
  • PERFORMactions that promote and reward things that are desirable, prevent and remediate things that are undesirable, and detect when something happens as soon as possible.
  • REVIEWthe design and operating effectiveness of the strategy and actions, as well as the ongoing appropriateness of objectives to improve the organization.

These components outline an iterative continuous improvement process to achieve principled performance and are further decomposed into elements that are then supported by practices, actions, and controls. The actions and controls are classified into Proactive, Detective and Responsive.
