The business world is using more advanced technologies and is expanding globally to stay competitive. While new technologies and growth bring many benefits, the complex landscape also creates challenging new rules and regulations. In this environment, a siloed approach to GRC is not enough. Instead, companies need to put in place a cross-company, cross-process GRC framework.
