Thinking Beyond Conventional GRC: What’s Next - Governance, Finance, Risk, and Compliance (GFRC)?

Date: Thursday, April 30, 2015 | Time: 8 am PST| 11 am EST


In association with

The traditional Governance, Risk, and Compliance (GRC) processes have facilitated financial organizations with the management of risks through organized and streamlined approaches and controls. However, an increasing number of incidents of compliance breaches and failures to ensure timely identification of risks across industries have questioned the effectiveness of the existing governance systems in enterprises.

Although conventional GRC programs take into account important parameters such as IT security, systems, processes, and controls, it often fails to focus on organizational psychology and human behavior. Linking existing GRC strategy with finance will widen the scope of GRC by including parameters such as conduct, capital, model, stress testing, and reputational risk management. Further, investing in advanced technologies such as social media monitoring, artificial intelligence, high-performance computing, and flexible data access will help organizations move beyond traditional GRC and establish a realistic methodology.
