Safeway and the GRC ServiceNow (Governance, Risk, and Compliance)

By October 16, 2020 No Comments

[SAFEWAY] has extensive experience in GRC, certified and highly qualified professionals and the leading solution both from the Gartner magic quadrant and from Forrester Research, offering their customers the best option on the market: ServiceNow Governance, Risk, and Compliance.

The scope of the internet and the more intensive use of data, in addition to regulatory issues, have GRC (Governance, Risk and Compliance) an increasingly present concern for companies of all sizes.

This is because we are talking about:

  • Governance - set of rules, policies and procedures that establish the responsibilities of an organization, defining its guidelines and objectives to coordinate the efforts of people, processes and technologies.
  • Risk - effect of uncertainties on the company's strategic objectives. It can be measured by the relationship between the probability of an event occurring and the possible impacts of it.
  • Compliance - degree of adherence of an organization to standards, laws, procedures and / or best practices, whether recommended or mandatory.

Ideally, these issues should be dealt with centrally, but it is common to find companies that have different areas for this, duplicating information and controls that often become conflicting. That is why it is necessary to integrate corporate initiatives into a single work model, avoiding redundant controls, conflicts in decision making and facilitating alignment with strategic business objectives.

More than that, centralization will provide updated and standardized information, guaranteeing accuracy and agility in making strategic decisions. But how to do that?

The business and IT challenge

Managing risks and compliance with a manual, isolated and reactive model of work no longer meets the need to adopt new business models, establish effective relationships with partners, deploy new technologies and address the growing number of cyber threats and risks. Many companies have found that without an integrated view of risk, it is virtually impossible to quickly assess the impact on existing compliance obligations and the risk posture of these changes.
