wow

In the initial days of GRC, while we all realized “Compliance” was important, the list of benefits it resulted in, seemed rather intangible; it wasn’t the eye-catching, mind-blowing entries we had come to expect from everything. Being compliant gave your organization flexibility, agility, reduction in fines … and so on and so forth. However, the results of non-compliance loomed larger - other than the financial burden it imposed, non-compliance could affect the very reputation of your company.
