The 2013 GRC Technology Innovator awards was filled with competition. The number of submissions more than doubled over 2012. With 57 submissions there were only twelve slots for winners. GRC 20/20 looked through all of the submissions, asked for clarification where needed, and selected the 12 recipients to receive this honor.
Number 3 is Integrc’s "Engaging Risk” which showed technology innovation for engaging Risk: providing a social GRC architecture.
Integrc’s "Engaging Risk” is a combination of integrated GRC knowledge solutions that helps organizations achieve greater understanding and interaction. The common aspiration for organizations is to change how they interact, adopt, perceive and embed GRC technologies and initiatives and Engaging Risk achieves this through a portfolio of user facing technologies that include dashboards, apps, adobe forms, and internal tools for GRC. Engaging Risk promotes "social GRC” (gamification) and helps organizations improve participation in risk management. Historical GRC solutions are designed primarily with the risk community in mind; Engaging Risk takes a broader approach by recognizing that successful GRC initiatives engage the users and other stakeholders, encouraging participation, explaining benefits and embedding into standard processes. Engaging Risk does not replace the core GRC engine but focuses on delivery of the GRC benefits through the wider user community. Engaging Risk increases the participation in the processes and the perception of GRC processes by breaking down the silos and making GRC relevant to the wider community. The core goals are applied; to hunt down the pain for GRC users, to encourage adoption by lowering the participation barriers and embed GRC in the DNA of the business.
