With our services in the area of Governance, Risk and Compliance, we help our customers to meet the constantly growing compliance requirements from information security, data protection and risk management with suitable concepts, processes, services and technical solutions.
Companies have, of course, always been run according to rules, laws and procedures, and consciously weighed risks against opportunities. In that sense, GRC is nothing new. What is changing, however, is the speed with which companies must adapt to new circumstances.
This relates to legal requirements as well as demands that employees, customers and partners have on the company. And last but not least, the company also has expectations of itself, compliance with which can no longer be ensured by just a few decision-makers due to the networking and globalization of business. Here, an integrated view of risks and regulatory requirements, aligned with business objectives and stakeholder interests, helps to create a real competitive advantage.
We support our clients with an integrated, holistic approach to ensure organization-wide governance, risk and compliance, contributing to better corporate governance. By creating transparency wherever more insight helps to illuminate business operations, assess risks and help make better business decisions.
An implementation plan specifies which internal and external regulations have which effect on the company's success, which test and rule frequencies result from this, and how the evidence is provided. In addition, the plan includes the sources of risk from partnerships and who has what responsibilities and tasks within the framework of GRC.
Automated or manual mapping of a measure to multiple regulations saves high effort and excessive audit costs. Cross-mapping of measures across multiple regulations (e.g. SOX, HIPAA, DSGVO, ISO27k, PCI) saves effort and time in audits, testing and evidence gathering activities by "test once, comply many".
The automation of GRC processes and secure distribution to those responsible ensures consistent quality. Regularity and practice ensure efficient processing of the assigned tasks.
Business Impact Analyses and Risk Assessments capture the real risks of the organization. The measures defined on this basis save time and minimize the risk.
Lifecycle management of risks identifies risks as well as their impact and probability of occurrence. This ensures business focus and ensures awareness of the impact of ineffective measures. It also facilitates prioritization for action testing and necessary improvements.
Starting small, the GRC roadmap expands GRC functions step by step between audit cycles. Business disruptions are minimized and employees stay motivated through rapid success.
Automated continuous monitoring identifies ineffective and inappropriate actions and risks as they occur. Early detection of issues reduces overall risk and decreases the effort required to remain in compliance.
The implementation of "low-hanging fruits" within the very large and dense field of application of GRC provides the basis and ensures successful projects. Be it the elimination of administrative effort through automation, reduction of risks, transparency of GRC information in real time and from operational life, or all of the above.
Lifecycle management of measures ensures that business objectives are supported in the best possible way and that risks are kept as low as possible. It checks whether there are better, simpler and more effective measures that should replace existing measures.
We support you in various GRC topics - both technical and in business consulting. Here you will find a selection:
Automated orchestration of security requirements and extensive integration of data sources and linkage to your processes increase the quality of your SecOps team's work through improved security incident response and vulnerability response.
In Business Continuity Management, we support you in effectively and efficiently restoring your business in the event of a disaster.
For example, we identify critical business services as part of the business impact analysis and determine the maximum recovery time after an outage (RTO) as well as the tolerable data loss (RPO). With plan development and exercises, we ensure that your organization is prepared for the occurrence of the event.
In risk management, transparency of current risks and their impact is crucial to enable rapid action. With our services, we support you in creating an overview for the qualitative or quantitative assessment of risks and ensure clarity in the impact on your business.
We help you to simplify compliance processes in your company.
For example, by supporting you in setting up or preparing a service portal or dashboards, in setting up policy lifecycle management through a preconfigured detailed lifecycle with review and approval processes, or in automating effectiveness checks.
In audit management, we support you with risk-based audit plans and ensure the automation of cross-functional audits. The resulting audit process supports planning and scoping, ensures smooth execution through directly assignable tasks, and simplifies the reporting of results.
Governance Risk and Compliance Management with IRM and Security Operations from ServiceNow® offers not only holistic process support according to best practice models, but also the highest possible transparency for all parties involved and thus a rapid and timely response option.

Checked and released policies are made available as knowledgebase articles for the validity period. Timely before the expiry of the validity, the responsible persons are informed about the necessary check. For executable policies, confirmation of applicability is provided by the employees concerned.
Real environmental conditions are integrated into risk management via event messages from employees and customers. In addition, sensory indicators ensure automated consideration when threshold values are exceeded.
Dynamic templates support the planning process for audits. Workflow supported, the audit tasks are carried out in a verifiable and documented manner and the handling of findings is ensured. Incidents within the period to be audited are automatically taken into account. Reporting provides an overview and documentation.
