Managing Risk in Distributed & Dynamic Environments
Executive SummaryDistributed, dynamic, and disrupted business requires the organization to take a strategic approach to GRC strategy and process enabled with an integrated information and technology architecture. The organization needs complete situational awareness of GRC across operations, processes, relationships, systems, and information to see the big picture of risk and its impact on organization performance and strategy. GRC fails when risk issues are addressed as a system of parts that do not integrate and work as a collective whole. Optial is a GRC solution provider that GRC 20/20 has researched, evaluated, and reviewed with organizations that are using it in complex, distributed, and dynamic business environments. Optial delivers an agile and full GRC solution that is highly adaptable and configurable to a range of GRC challenges across departments and industries.
