Welcome to The GRC Sphere!
The GRC Sphere is a member-based community site which has been designed to serve all enterprise functions and roles that work with Governance Risk and Compliance (GRC) projects and programs. As a Professionals' Networked Community (PNC) platform, our site focuses on work collaboration and GRC support ecosystems, not the pleasantries of social networking per se. In essence, we serve the greater good for our community members by lowering the cost of GRC, building GRC support networks, and by helping to make the practices that drive GRC more sustainable.
Our 4 levels of member services include:
- GRC Connect Level 1 Basic Member Services
- GRC Connect Level 2 Standard Member Services
- GRC Connect Level 3 Premium Member Services
- GRC Collaborate Level 4 Community-based Member Services
We guide GRC convergence by providing GRC community support ecosystems and providing GRC education on proven strategies and processes. We also guide and assist our members as they evolve, enhance, and sustain the GRC content that they need in their role or which is needed by the organization that employs them. Here are just a few of the common roles that we serve:
- Finance and Accounting
- Internal / External Auditors
- Risk Management
- GRC Program Office personnel
- All Security-related practices
- Information Technology
- Other functions and roles that bear GRC responsibilities
The GRC Support Ecosystem
Another major industry challenge that The GRC Sphere is tackling is the critical need that is being expressed by companies for building their own "GRC support ecosystem". A GRC support ecosystem consists of specialized resources that exist across a company, as well as across independent partners that exist outside the four walls of the enterprise. Now, companies realize that they need to do a much better job in managing their GRC support ecosystem so that they can have broad coverage across many specialized areas in a cost-effective way no matter where they may want to conduct business globally and no matter how complex and challenging the GRC support requirements might be.
The GRC Sphere will be helping companies like yours to find specialized GRC services by matching service providers with requests for GRC mentoring (over-the-phone consulting), one-time / short-term consulting, and virtual internal audit and GRC specialist services on an as-needed basis as well as through "virtual employees" (internal auditors and GRC specialists that are retained on an annual basis) so that you have GRC support when a critical emergency arises.
