Turn Risk Management Into A Valuable Business Enabler
Built around the concept of visualization, integration and communication VirtueSpark GRC is designed to overcome the common weaknesses of risk management implementations. Each individual stakeholder is enabled to apply opportunity and risk management against objectives to their daily activities and to take decisions that are more valuable by better understanding the context across the company.
Enable boards and senior executives to get insights in real-time. They can easily drill down along the chain of risks that affect each other and get insights down to the low level root causes of their key risks. No need to await the next reporting cycle because everyone is on the same page. At any time.
Let the system support you in the identification of risks. We constantly enhance the artificial intelligence engine that analyzes data patterns and dependencies to highlight those risks that otherwise might not have been identified.
Make your risk assessment closer to reality. Because risk impact can have multiple dimensions, the risk management solution helps you to identify the multiple causes and consequences your risks can have and to visually determine the most likely scenarios.

The flexible definition of business impact assessments helps to determine risks and applicability of controls. In addition, the end-to-end dependency management functionality is a powerful tool to keep oversight and make sure the right set of controls is applied. Define requirements at one point and let the system help you to generate the control setup.
Avoid redundancies and unnecessary tests through control inheritance and mapping.

Make your procedures come alive.
Object mapping and relation management
The Power Of The Object Design Paradigm
Benefit from the flexibility of the object design paradigm to create a truly integrated environment.
The principle is easy.
Be it a unit, a supplier, a machine or a product, everything is an object. Some are more abstract than others, but all can be related to other objects, have GRC related attributes and can be subject to your risks. Define your own objects and the importance to your business and objectives. Use interfaces to frequently import updates from your existing asset and configuration management databases and make sure that changes in your data are updated automatically.
The principle is powerful.
Whether you want to see at a glance which of your suppliers is critical to your key processes or you want to know if the risk to a particular machine has an impact on your business objectives, knowing your environment and dependencies between objects helps to better identify the truly important assets. Therefore, you can focus your activities where they are really needed.
Apply your resources where they have the most impact.
