Pete, Phil & Lynda's Takes On Strategy

Verterim thought leaders weigh in on the importance of a well-executed approach to GRC Programs
As a CISO I appreciated the quote "Vision without execution is just hallucination," by Thomas Edison. Start with a plan, focus on your prioritized elements, assemble and motivate the team, measure, analyze and report on your progress and celebrate your milestones! Plaster them all over your company in whatever way you are able to. People want to win, to be a part of a team and this can be infectious in the most positive way for a GRC program.

With my experience as a Manager of Product Marketing at Archer and as Director of Enterprise Risk Management and GRC at Dell, I have witnessed firsthand the key components that drive successful GRC programs. Moreover, I have also identified the factors that can lead to the failure of these programs. For those who are genuinely committed to their GRC program, it is essential to collaborate with a strategic advisor who can help steer clear of common pitfalls and unlock the program's full potential.

A strong GRC program relies on sound strategic planning, well-defined roadmaps, and selecting the right GRC tool. Strategy provides direction, aligning goals and risk management practices. Roadmaps outline clear steps and timelines for GRC implementation. Choosing the appropriate GRC tool ensures efficient workflows, automation, and accurate reporting. These elements enhance efficiency, mitigate risks, support informed decision-making, ensure compliance, and facilitate scalability. With a solid foundation in strategy, clients establish successful GRC programs.
