Robust and up-to-date content is a crucial first step in any budding GRC program. This is very true when organizations are navigating the complexities of achieving and maintaining compliance with a number of regulators and authorities. They often find themselves inundated with regulatory compliance requirements and because of that, they have many, many content needs.
Which comes in various forms, posing challenges for organizations. Some of the challenges that they find themselves facing while dealing with regulatory content are:
- Content Management - oftentimes, organizations find themselves with content spread throughout management systems, like Google Drive, SharePoint, or even in their mailboxes. One file may be here. The other may be there. This really creates chaos when the auditor comes knocking.
- Maintaining versions of authority documents - outdated regulations lead to outdated risks, policies, and other required internal content materials, which can equate to non-compliance with these legislations.
- Feeling intimidated by the requirements – organizations that are just getting started on their GRC or information security journey can feel incredibly overwhelmed by regulatory content build-out requirements. And there are many factors to consider and the sheer amount of content required to develop a robust program can be really intimidating.
- The constant onslaught of regulatory changes - really challenging, particularly when organisations have to comply with multiple legislations. Moreover, the pandemic has impacted the GRC space. Businesses are starting to prioritize compliance and risk management processes while truly formalizing and standardizing.
