GRC Strategy, Process, & Technology Seminar . . .
Join Corporate Integrity and OCEG in a two-day interactive training seminar that covers the GRC Capability Model and helps organizations address GRC Strategy, Process, and Technology in their environments. Attendees receive value in defining GRC processes and strategy that aligns to OCEG’s GRC Capability Model.
The objective of the seminar is to provide attendees with the knowledge necessary to efficiently design and enhance GRC activities across the business based on the GRC Capability Model. Attendees learn about defining a GRC strategy and associated processes through lectures and practical group interaction, discussions, and exercises.
At the heart of the seminar is the OCEG GRC Capability Model™. Although various standards and frameworks exist to address discrete portions of governance, risk management and compliance issues, the OCEG GRC Capability Model™ is the only open standard that provides comprehensive and detailed practices for an integrated GRC program.
Organizations can use the GRC Capability Model to address a broad GRC program across the organization or develop a structure within domains of GRC (e.g., compliance, risk management, audit). The goal is to make GRC processes more effective, efficient, and agile to the needs of the business.
