Compliance costs are skyrocketing for credit unions, increasing strategic risk and reducing service quality for members. To offset these challenges, credit unions need a comprehensive solution for managing and monitoring their risk and compliance programs.
GRC — shorthand for governance, risk, and compliance — is a framework that encompasses the policies, processes, and capabilities that organizations develop to:
An effective GRC framework enables enterprise-wide coordination in the following areas:
Ensuring your credit union’s activities are aligned with strategic objectives; encompasses the processes, policies, and structures implemented to communicate, manage, and monitor organizational activities
Developing sustainable processes for:
1) addressing potential risks and threats,
2) developing and maintaining controls to mitigate those risks, and
3) providing reasonable assurance that significant risks are managed in accordance with relevant and documented policies; encompasses risk identification, measurement, assessment, mitigation, retention, monitoring, and reporting
Conforming with laws, rules, regulations, prescribed practices, internal policies and procedures, or ethical standards
