What is a Governance, Risk, and Compliance?

Governance, Risk and Compliance, or GRC, is the collective strategy and process for defining and managing an organization's governance, risk management, and regulatory compliance. While GRC activities are often part of an overall organizational strategy, they play important parts in IT and IT security strategy and planning.
Governance ensures IT management goals and objectives map into overall organizational or business strategy. For instance, do leaders have access to the right information in order to make the best decisions possible?
Risk management involves identifying areas that could impede or harm business objectives. These findings need to be well documented and understood to determine how they negatively (or positively) affect overall business strategy.
Compliance seeks to prove that IT systems and processes are being operated in ways that meet local laws and regulatory requirements.
