GRC and the CISO

GRC is touching just about everyone these days. A lot has been written about the CFO, CRO, CCO and CIO and their roles in deploying GRC technologies. Mike Rothman at the Daily Incite writes here about the CISO’s role in deploying GRC solutions and makes the point that CISO’s should be focused not on implementing specific controls but on the program (my emphasis added). We could not agree more. A security program identifies the key areas of focus and prioritizes activities accordingly. A bottom-up approach doesn’t necessarily allocate resources to the high risk areas, and, given that most companies are operating with increasingly scare financial resources, a risk-based approach is the best way to allocate resources.
