The 6clicks Hub & Spoke model provides customers with a flexible way to run GRC programs across multi-entity organizations and use cases. It allows organizations to centralize their risk and compliance function while empowering and providing teams with the autonomy they need to succeed.
For a long time, many companies have used tools such as SharePoint or Excel in an attempt to manage GRC activities. Anyone who has experienced such programs knows exactly how challenging this is. 6clicks is built to do away with such cumbersome tools and processes, while 6clicks Hub & Spoke is designed to do this at scale!
We have helped hundreds of organizations digitize their process so they can log on to one portal and access all of their entities from one centralized Hub (the Hub in Hub and Spoke). This provides them with a single pane of glass to support, manage and track the entities (the Spokes in Hub and Spoke) they have oversight over.
Core risk and compliance members interacting and engaging with entities across the organization have role-based access controls. This means they can only see and access the teams they are working with directly. All this can be managed by the centralized Hub team.
But that's only the beginning. 6clicks Hub & Spoke allows you to determine of centralized or decentralized a risk and compliance operating model the organization wants to run. Standardized audit and assessment templates, control sets, projects and playbooks, and more can be defined and then pushed down to connected entity teams. Users within those teams can also create and use their own if need be. Teams can also leverage the 6clicks Content Library which is packed full of standards, laws, and regulations, as well as ready-to-go templates.
Take a company like Amazon, for example. A global presence and oodles of risk and compliance processes. How do they categorize and maintain data segregation to operate their risk and compliance structure? The mind boggles. But these days, mega conglomerates are now not the only ones needing to manage risk and compliance by business departments or some other weird and wonderful segregation type that makes sense to them.
Not to pick on healthcare, but it is a massive concern for risk and compliance and a huge target for cyber attackers. So it is an excellent case to illustrate how any industry can benefit.
How do healthcare systems currently manage their risk? Where do they begin? Well, in this day and age, most start with Excel. However, Excel has become an antiquated way of operating and managing a risk program.
With Hub & Spoke, a healthcare provider with multiple entities or divisions, either in various locations or all-in-one, can allocate a 'Super Administrator' with full view and access management. Essentially, each entity or division becomes a categorized 'Spoke' within the top view portfolio.
From there, headquarters can gain entry into each Spoke separately and then every single GRC activity within each Spoke.
The abilities to streamline, automate and closely (as well as easily) manage GRC activities from here are endless.
Anything from managing risks (threats and vulnerabilities included), mapping and demonstrating compliance, project management, assessing, auditing, controlling issues and incidents, managing assets, implementing and maintaining information security, and much more is within arm's reach.
Headquarters can go as granular as they want.
Onboarding is easy. Managing risk is manageable. Being able to have access to relevant content in our library is easy, and we house all that information in one consolidated, integrated, and fully automated platform.
Hub & Spoke is for every industry and won't break the bank or sit on the shelf - and now we're offering a further discount of 25% for not-for-profits.
For the simple reason that, across the board, it does not exist anywhere else. There is no other way to be able to have all the information you need to manage GRC on a team-by-team or entity-by-entity basis. We love it when organizations see 6clicks Hub & Spoke and say 'finally a GRC solution that gets us'.
So that's one of the reasons it's been so attractive for multi-entity organizations, simply because there wasn't any other tool on the market that could fit to meet their organizational design and hierarchy.
