GRC, which stands for Governance, Risk, and Compliance is widespread in the cybersecurity space today. This is as a result of industry standards organizations and governments responding to data breach landscape. The new requirements of compliance are crucial in the creation of a risk management plan that is extremely effective. Another way to look at GRC is as an approach with structures to align Information Technology with business objectives at the same time manage risk and comply with the requirements. Governance: Ensures that all organization activities align to support the long-term business goals.
Companies have high hopes for transformational technologies, especially those that leverage the vast amount of data being collected. Approaches using methods such as artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning (ML) and deep learning are becoming increasingly accessible and gaining significant traction, as they allow for deep insights to be extracted from large and varied data sets. As noted in the 2019 IT Audit survey by Protiviti and ISACA, this transformation has the potential to fuel long-term growth. However, as Protiviti's recent global AI survey reveals, most companies are still at the starting gate when it comes to figuring out the answers to basic questions: What are the possible use cases for AI? Can we measure ROI? What data do we have and how usable is it?

While there has been much talk about business operations becoming Agile, we are now hearing talk of Agile happening in places you might not expect. Most of us don't normally think of the internal audit function of a large corporation as anything remotely agile or nimble. Instead the phrase "internal audit" is likely to conjure up images of bureaucrats with green eye-shades, who follow rules for rule's sake, with a fetish for finding tiny flaws, while consistently missing the forest for the trees. They are the defenders of the rule book, the fighters for compliance, the true believers in bureaucracy. They are precisely the kind of people who prevent large organizations from becoming nimble.
