Think of a critical component for achieving your organization's strategic objectives. Did Governance, Risk, and Compliance (GRC) programs come to mind? If not, they should have. GRC plays a key role in everything from meeting regulatory compliance and audit requirements to reducing risk and ensuring access granted aligns with the principle of least privilege.
GRC solutions offer a way to integrate OCEG best practices from the GRC Capability Model into your Enterprise Resource Planning suite of applications. Access to critical and sensitive resources should go through these multiple steps before being approved.
LEARN - Understanding the organizational context, culture, and key stakeholders better informs your objectives, and by extension, your strategy and actions.
ALIGN - When strategy is aligned with objectives, actions then align strategy. Effective and informed decision-making then addresses values, opportunities, threats, and requirements.
PERFORM - Desirable actions are promoted. Dangerous and risky actions are prevented and remediated. Early detection is crucial.
REVIEW - Regular periodic assessment of the strategy, actions, and objectives improve operating effectiveness and assure
A core feature of the GRC framework is the enforcement of Segregation of Duties (SoD) controls. This helps reduce fraud and abuse by breaking up mission-critical processes over multiple individuals. But productivity can't take a hit in today's fast-paced market.
Organizations moving at the speed of business can't slow down while SoDs are identified and remediated, yet business units are vital to the mitigation process. Often they are needed to review and apply compensating controls. This results in a reactive approach. Ongoing challenges in today's hybrid enterprise, and the continuing reﬁnement to Cybersecurity initiatives, demand a more proactive approach to prevent SoDs rather than fixing them after the fact.
Delivering notifications when a user's access request creates a potentially toxic combination allows the mitigation process to begin before a violation can occur. The usage can then be actively monitored, creating a reportable state of continuous compliance.
