Governance, Risk, and Compliance (GRC) can offer businesses the security of running their business without crossing any regulatory lines.

Ensure compliance: GRC is often an overlooked element of business. But we must improve resilience and prepare for disruption to remain relevant and deliver value to your customers or clients.

Risk visibility: At The Missing Link, we focus our GRC efforts on a holistic risk viability model. This includes:

  • Strategic risk ownership and governance that affect business strategies.
  • Operational risk that might halt, alter, or affect operations of a company and its processes.
  • Cyber risks that might target applications, databases, infrastructures, and other connected devices.
  • Data risks where information is susceptible to theft or corruption.

Compliance/ Regulatory: The degree to which non-compliance can affect regulatory obligations.

Aligning business goals: Using GRC the correct way means you can align all GRC efforts with your business goals and use insights to strengthen and protect your business.

  • What types of data are subject to cyber security compliance?

    Your business could have a range of data that needs to be protected by compliance rules. Personally Identifiable Information (PII), Protected Health Information (PHI), and financial information must be protected. These data types are managed through various compliance requirements.

  • What are the major security risks?

    The biggest cyber risks to businesses include phishing, ransomware and crypto-jacking. Deep fakes is also an emerging and rapidly growing risk element. Businesses that do not have a well managed or up to date cyber security plan leave themselves very susceptible to cyber security risks.

  • What are the common cyber attacks?

    Malware attacks are the most common cyberattacks, but all cyber security risks must be taken seriously. It’s often all too easy for threats to be carried out and businesses to be vulnerable if they do not have full understanding and managed or cyber risk.

  • Where should I start with a cyber security program?

    Start by gathering all your existing cyber security documents and data, then engage an expert such as the team at The Missing Link to help you review, assess, improve, and manage a state-of-the-art cyber security plan.
