Describe and analyze risk scenarios in detail; describe different risk scenarios; and communicate risk treatment to third parties.|
|Decrease complexity||Integrate all regulatory demands into a single approach and Internal Control System (ICS). Create issues for identified problems and weaknesses in the internal control system so improvements can be initiated. Track action with two-stage issue workflow.|
|Improve monitoring and reporting||Monitor GRC processes with desktop or mobile dashboards. Reduce redundancy and ensure consistency in data and reports.|
|Improve efficiency||Standardize GRC processes using an integrated platform across all different risk and compliance areas. This central hub also provides a “single point of truth” for all compliance activities.|
|Simplify audits||Schedule audit related tasks and get efficient support for your time management and reporting. The platform also includes a “self-audit” capability and a seamless audit trail. Reduce audit fees and re-use process documentation.|
|Manage incidents efficiently||Use the system to easily document incidents and resulting loss or damage. Basel II and Solvency II requirements are covered. Publish corporate guidelines and get confirmation from the appropriate people that policies have been applied. Launch and document training.|
|Use real data in real-time||Monitor operational processes continuously and trigger test cases, risk assessments, incidents or issues automatically if necessary. Be proactive instead of reactive. Cover 100 percent of data instead of just samples.|
Distribute questionnaires with predefined scores:
Manage problems and weaknesses in the ICS and let people know about them for fast resolution. Action tracking helps ensure follow-up on every defined activity:
Use a comprehensive workflow for incident management:
Create and monitor controls after identifying compliance risks:
Map policies, stored in a central repository, to business context with clearly defined responsibilities, affected processes, entities and more. Policy owners gather stakeholder approvals and then publish official policies. Employees can attest they’ve received policies and sign a formal confirmation. A seamless audit trail makes reporting fast and easy:
|Regulatory change management||
Quickly and easily analyze business elements affected by regulatory changes:
Document losses resulting from incidents and classify them into different types:

Analyze process information, such as time and costs, using standard or customized analysis and queries:
Manage the process of process management:
|Monitoring & reporting||
Quickly create dashboards that give managers up-to-date information on GRC activities:
|Compliance management||Identify the necessary internal measures (controls) to ensure compliance, establish a regular schedule to assess effectiveness and report to the respective authorities about status and findings. Adapt faster to new laws and regulations and create synergies by overlapping regulatory requirements by creating one company-specific requirements catalog, avoiding overlaps and double work.|
|Risk management||Define the right controls to mitigate risks and install effective measures to reduce their consequences if they occur. Use heat maps and bow tie methodology to visualize and analyze risk status. Determine risk probabilities and damage distributions by simulating risk events along business-process chains.|
|Policy management||Improve corporate governance by understanding the full life cycle of a policy, from creation and release to the assessment of its effectiveness. Communicate important policies to employees.|
|Audit management||Analyze and assess quality as well as other performance areas. Usually this includes scheduling audit-related tasks, managing paperwork, organizing findings and reporting results. Our platform helps you reduce costs of temporary staff, such as auditors, and re-use best practices for different audits. Gain insight into upcoming tasks and preparation times.
