THE GRC GAP & MATURITY ASSESSMENT
This assessment is a process that evaluates an organization’s Governance, Risk, and Compliance practices using a GRC Capability Model, with the support of strong corporate governance. The assessment provides an overview of the current maturity level of the organization and an executive summary of the results.
It refers to the formal process of establishing rules, procedures, guidelines, and conventions that define the roles, responsibilities, behaviors, and decisions made on behalf of all stakeholders in a corporation. The purpose of this process is to achieve a specific level of performance in the organization through coordination and integration of various practices. It is essential for the smooth functioning of a company and to ensure that all stakeholders’ interests are taken into consideration.

Risk management involves identifying and managing events or actions that may prevent an organization from achieving its goals. Effective risk management can lead to better performance and higher profits, while poor risk management can lead to losses and damage to reputation. Companies need to intelligently take risks and manage them through execution. There are two types of risks: rewarded risks that have potential upsides, and unrewarded risks that have only downsides. Boards are expected to play a key role in risk management. Our services include evaluating governance processes, defining the board’s risk oversight role, setting risk appetite, fostering a risk intelligent culture, and incorporating risk intelligence into strategy.
