2020 was certainly a year for the history books. While it has been a roller coaster that moves on into 2021 now, it certainly had a lot of impact on governance, risk management, and compliance (GRC) strategies, processes, and technology. The keywords for 2021 are integrity and resiliency. Organizations are seeking to increase organizational integrity that they live up to their ethics, values, commitments, and obligations in the midst of uncertainty. They are also looking to increase business and operational resiliency. I see both the terms business and operational resiliency used a lot, they are different but related. Business resiliency is the resiliency of the organization’s strategy, finance/treasury position, and operations. Operational Resiliency is that last piece in business resiliency: operations. Operational resiliency is looking at the risk and resiliency of the organization’s processes, functions, systems, and third party relationships.
