Dynamic Risk Registers

Accurate Risk Scoring

Residual risk scores are based on controls being in place, if these controls are not working your assumptions are wrong and so are your risk registers.

To overcome this we created dynamic residual scoring, meaning you link your controls to the impact or likelihood reduction, test your controls via the systems risk control self assessment questionnaires and if any controls fail  your registers will dynamically adjust to reflect the new position.

Risk management News

More than half of CEOs think their enterprise risk management software (ERM) program is not as effective as it should be.

The Need for enterprise risk management Software
With companies experiencing an increase in risks, it’s no surprise the report uncovered that 88% of CEOs think ERM is very or extremely important. However, while most companies have an ERM program in place, there seems to be little agreement as to what a successful program should really looks like in practice, beyond the obvious.
Fortunately, CEOs are beginning to understand the need for their involvement in their company’s ERM program with 66% wanting more involvement.
“It’s not a matter of if your company will face risk, it’s a matter of when, and which risks. Every business faces risks, and without a strategy in place, you are setting your company up for failure, for CEOs to become more involved with ERM, they must integrate ERM in their business decision-making process and create a culture of risk. The responsibility of ERM does not fall only on the IT or compliance departments, it involves every employee and every department.”
The CEOs surveyed echo this sentiment, asserting a clear desire for increased visibility into risks and a quantifiable methodology for tracking and evaluating them.
Several CEOs lamented the “labor-intensive” process in their organizations and voiced a need for a “better understanding of what it’s costing us to mitigate risk.” They also recognize a need for “regimented” and “streamlined” methods of factoring risk into their overall business strategies.

Governance, risk management, and compliance (GRC) is the capability to reliably achieve objectives [GOVERNANCE] while addressing uncertainty [RISK MANAGEMENT] and act with integrity [COMPLIANCE]. The components of GRC provide the three legs of the stool that offer support and stability to the business and its operations. You take one leg away and the stool is no longer stable. It takes all three elements of governance, risk management and compliance working together to provide stability and balance for the organization.

Risk Assessments

In a risk assessment, one tool you can use is a risk universe. A risk universe is a list of the potential risks that your organisation, or a similar one in your line of business, might face. The risks are organised into categories such as financial, operational, people, and strategic. Under the people category, you might find sufficient people, sufficient competence, colleague engagement, and colleague safety, for example. When you are performing a risk assessment, the universe provides a checklist. But it doesn’t mean you won’t have missed something important.
• Brainstorming the functional objectives
• Building a picture of the risks
• Consider threats and opportunities
• Building the details of the controls
• Planning the assignment
• Determining the types of test and techniques to use
• Determining the threats to success
The Converging Roles of the Assurance Providers
• The increasing emphasis on governance, assurance and control
• How should the various assurance providers rise to the risk challenge?
• Synchronizing regulatory compliance with internal audit and the risk management functions
• The need to coordinate the assurance providers
• Assurance mapping
• Linking external auditors into the process

Every organization is doing GRC, no matter what they call it. The question is, how mature is the organization’s GRC capability? Is it a reactive and disconnected process with departments going in many directions with much redundancy? Or is it mature, integrated and coordinated across the organization that aims to deliver on agility, efficiency and effectiveness of GRC-related processes in the context of organizational strategy, performance and objectives?
Organizations need a mature GRC capability that is supported by strong information and technology architecture that provides an integrated view of objectives, risks, compliance, controls, events and more. However, what confuses organizations is that they think GRC is about technology. That is putting the cart before the horse. GRC is about a capability delivered through a coordinated strategy and processes across the organization. Technology enables these processes to work together and function, but it does not define them. Too many organizations think GRC is something they purchase. GRC is not something you buy; it is something you do: GRC is the actions and activities of governance, risk management, and compliance.
There is technology for GRC and we often call this integrated or enterprise GRC platforms. However, these solutions are not GRC in themselves. Nor is there any single technology solution that does everything GRC. There can and should be a central core GRC platform that connects the fabric of governance, risk management and compliance processes, information and other technologies together across the organization. This architecture is the hub of GRC management and requires that it be able to integrate and connect with a variety of different systems and enterprise applications to deliver on GRC
