Innovation in Automated Controls Architecture
[tabs style=”default”] [tab title=”Executive Summary”]
GRC teams need complete situational and holistic awareness of business performance, risk, and data to see the big picture of risk and its impact on performance and strategy to provide assurance to the organization and its stakeholders. Distributed, dynamic, and disrupted business requires the organization to take a strategic approach to data analytics. Achieving a 360° contextual awareness of performance and risk is about understanding interactions and relationships of cause and effect across strategy, process, transactions, information, and technology supporting the business and requires an agile approach to data analytics. ACL ScriptHub is a GRC solution that GRC 20/20 has researched, evaluated, and reviewed with organizations that are using it in dynamic business environments. GRC 20/20 has evaluated and verified the innovation found in ScriptHub, which uses pre-written data analysis scripts like Lego blocks to build tests. This delivers an automated controls architecture to continuously monitor or use on an as-needed basis to provide assurance of business processes and transactions. ScriptHub makes organizations more efficient, effective, and agile in their GRC processes. In this context, GRC 20/20 has recognized ACL ScriptHub with a 2015 GRC Innovation Award for technical innovation in Automated Controls Architecture.
