Governance, Risk, and Compliance (GRC) is a framework that helps organizations manage three key areas:

Governance: This refers to the policies, procedures, and leadership structures that an organization puts in place to achieve its goals. In cybersecurity, this translates to how decisions are made about IT security, who is responsible for different aspects of security, and how well these policies are communicated and enforced.

Risk: This refers to the potential for harm that can be caused by a cyberattack. A GRC program helps organizations identify and assess these risks, such as data breaches, malware infections, or system outages.

Compliance: This refers to the organization's adherence to relevant laws and regulations. Many regulations require organizations to protect sensitive data, and a GRC program helps ensure the organization meets these compliance requirements.
