About this Publication:

Compliance is currently far more than an operational need to comply with one or two laws. Compliance practice is the heart of an organisation’s success or failure and cannot be divorced from an organisation’s risk management and governance functions.

Using both South African and international trends, regulations and examples, The A – Z of GRC: Governance, Risk and Compliance Simplified offers GRC professionals and management a logical, integrated approach to organisation-wide governance, risk and compliance. The A – Z of GRC: Governance, Risk and Compliance Simplified clearly explains how to ensure that organisations act ethically and in accordance with their risk appetite, internal policies and external regulations to improve efficiency and effectiveness.

Section 1 of The A – Z of GRC: Governance, Risk and Compliance Simplified provides the reader with an easy to read introduction to understanding GRC. Section 2 explores managing risk and Section 3 covers compliance, which is the legal framework impacting GRC. Section 4 gives the reader a comprehensive and invaluable set of practical compliance tools to be used in an integrated GRC approach.

The A – Z of GRC: Governance, Risk and Compliance Simplified is a valuable addition to any GRC professional’s library. Not only will anyone new to the field find it an essential aid but the seasoned professional seeking to remain up-to-date with current requirements or looking for new ideas and perspectives will find them in this volume.
