PASS GRC supports processes of IT governance, especially risk management, audits and KPI-based controlling.
The modern, user-configurable application environment includes notification and reminder management and ensures audit compliance. This results in an improvement for companies in terms of quality and productivity of collaboration, especially in risk management and internal and external audits.
The Governance Model of an IT Organization
Based on laws, standards and its own strategy, the IT organization of an enterprise has to define objectives and establish and implement necessary activities or measures (controls) as well as directives/guidelines. Risks associated with inadequate achievement of objectives must be regularly monitored and addressed (risk management). The adherence to the controls must always be checked within the scope of internal or external audits (compliance). Management requires KPIs (key performance indicators) for the timely monitoring of compliance with target values (controlling).
Flexible control preferences/system settings
Control requirements can be flexibly defined and adapted to, e.g. legal/regulatory requirements, management system standards. The use of existing rules and regulations enables rapid system availability.
Central management of documents
Guidelines, respectively directives are available at a central location through the GRC tool. This ensures that all responsible persons are automatically reminded of necessary reviews and approvals.
Interactions and transparency in audits
Auditors can interact with asset owners in the risk module. The configurable workflow facilitates collaboration between auditors. The auditor has access to all results and findings of completed audits.
Configurable risk management process
All parameters of the risk management process can be defined according to the specific requirements of the company. Those involved in the process are automatically reminded of pending or overdue activities.
Unchangeable snapshots are saved after data changes. These can be compared with each other, so that the change and the user who made it, along with the date and time of the revision, can be identified.
Automated KPI-based controlling
With the help of configurable adapters, KPIs can be updated periodically by accessing external systems, e.g. ticketing systems. A central dashboard shows the status of all KPIs and enables detailed views.
PASS GRC offers the user a uniform interface and user guidance across all modules, which can be customized. For example, users can save their own column settings and filters for each mask and call them up again at any time.
Notification and reminder management
Immediately after logging on, each user is shown in his or her personal dashboard which processing steps are pending or overdue due to his or her assignment.
Status values can be defined independently for all modules. It can be defined which status values are relevant for the notification and reminder management.
The configurable roles/rights system allows a fine-grained definition of function-related rights for internal and external users. The visibility of risks, checks and measures can be reliably restricted by assigning freely definable scopes for each user.
Flexible adaptation to company-specific requirements
To customize the risk module, numerous options, intervals, lead times for displaying due processing steps in the dashboard, etc. can be customized to meet the specific needs of the company.
An optionally integrated report generator enables the creation of standard reports and their provision for retrieval by defined user groups.
