Program Description

Through lectures and practical group interaction, discussions, and exercises, you will learn about:

  • Defining a GRC strategy
  • Integrating and improving corporate performance, risk and compliance programs
  • Strengthening core business processes
  • Improving use of technology to support the integrated governance, management, and assurance of performance, risk, and compliance
  • Successfully pass the GRC Professional certification exam

There simply is no other training program that provides you with the skills, resources, and practical examples you need to help your organization improve its GRC capability by implementing the publicly vetted open source standards set out in OCEG’s GRC Capability Model.

At the heart of the seminar is the OCEG GRC Capability Model. Although various standards and frameworks exist to address discrete portions of governance, risk management and compliance issues, the OCEG GRC Capability Model is the only open standard that provides comprehensive and detailed practices for an integrated GRC capability.

Organizations can use the GRC Capability Model to address a broad GRC program across the organization or develop a structure within domains of GRC (e.g., legal, compliance, risk management, audit). The goal is to make GRC processes more effective, efficient, and agile to the needs of the business.
