GRC/ERM for Government

The public service governance model is centred on serving the public interest rather than being driven by profit or “the bottom line”, and increasingly governments are receiving increasing public pressure to “do better with less”. To continue to serve the public in a timely, effective and efficient manner, the public sector is increasingly pursuing digital transformation, but risks accompany the benefits of innovation.

To accommodate the demands for fiscal restraint and service value, the public sector can build a risk-based approach into their organizational decision making.

A risk-based approach promotes:

Transparency & Accountability: a transparent, auditable process for weighing the benefits against the risks of each opportunity.

Collaboration: shared language and harmonized metrics break down risk management siloes to ensure that every decision considers the costs and benefits to every operational function that may be affected.

A strategic, proactive process: the proactive management of cyber, operational and business risks are the basis of all organizational decision making.
