40% of time spent compiling data for governance, risk and compliance reports. What works?

The global governance, risk and compliance report 2018 found over 40% of the GRC role was spent compiling data for governance, risk and compliance reports.

But how much of the data is actually actionable? What are the governance, risk and compliance metrics that truly drive improvement? And what templates, tools and techniques are available to help you make your business reports even better?

7 key data considerations

1. The best looking data visualizations are irrelevant if the data isn’t prepared properly

2. The future of any business rides on its ability to act on the vast amount of data being produced

3. The life-cycle of data needs to be managed, or you'll be inundated

4. Attacks are getting more sophisticated, more frequent and the line between cybercrime and cyberwar blurs

5. Businesses must consider infrastructure implications as they corral data, understand and translate data

6. Strategies are needed to sift through heaps of data accurately to formulate patterns and accurately make predictions

7. Data can tell a story, but only if you can see it clearly


To help you build strategic, actionable governance, risk and compliance reports, Kate Armitage, Head of Quality and Chris Owen, Services Director, shall be hosting a workshop later this month to share with you how to:

  • Choose your business reporting metrics and manage the life-cycle of your data 
  • Engage everyone from shop floor to top floor with your report actions (without leaving it all to you) 
  • Avoid data overload. Use best practice templates, tools and techniques for data management.
