Cybersecurity Governance, Risk, and Compliance (GRC) is an overarching approach to managing an organization's cybersecurity policies, processes, and controls. It ensures that cybersecurity practices align with business objectives, adhere to relevant regulations, and effectively mitigate potential risks. GRC encompasses three key components:

  • Governance: Establishing a strategic framework and policies for cybersecurity, along with oversight, roles, and responsibilities to ensure proper decision-making and accountability.

  • Risk management: Identifying, assessing, and prioritizing cybersecurity risks, followed by implementing appropriate controls to mitigate those risks and minimize their impact on the organization.

  • Compliance: Ensuring adherence to relevant laws, regulations, and industry standards related to cybersecurity, as well as implementing internal controls and monitoring to maintain ongoing compliance.

By adopting a comprehensive cybersecurity GRC approach, organizations can effectively protect their digital assets, maintain regulatory compliance, and minimize potential risks, ultimately supporting their overall business objectives.

There are many Cybersecurity frameworks and standards that can be leveraged to help guide your business through all the best practices and recommended controls that should be implemented and followed as part of GRC.

Here is a list of some of the top Frameworks and Standards:

  1. NIST (Cybersecurity Framework, 800-53, etc.)

  2. ISO 27001/27002

  3. CIS Critical Security Controls

  4. PCI-DSS

  5. OWASP

  6. FFIEC


  8. HIPAA

  9. FedRAMP
