Governance Risk and Compliance (GRC) advisory services

Protect your business and adapt to ongoing changes in regulations with governance, risk and compliance strategies developed by expert industry consultants.


What is GRC?

Develop a comprehensive governance, risk and compliance strategy.

Within enterprises, different departments are responsible for managing cyber risks, business goals and adhering to laws and regulations regarding data and information security. Without a Governance, risk, and compliance (GRC) strategy, all these different responsibilities will exist in silos.

Governance, risk, and compliance is a combined approach, that enables companies to stay abreast of business dynamics, technologies and regulation changes. Developing and deploying a GRC strategy comes with a list of benefits: reduction of silos, improved decision-making and optimised IT investments.

BT’s GRC advisory services are designed to help you adapt to changes in national and international data protection regulations and implement effective security frameworks. Our expertise covers:

  • Risk assessment and risk management - document your agreed risk appetite and develop a comprehensive risk management process
  • Security risk assessment – identifying and fixing gaps in existing compliance frameworks
  • Compliance testing and compliance audit – identifying gaps in existing compliance regimes, interpreting regulatory requirements and implementing appropriate frameworks.
