Why Outsource GRC (Governance Risk and Compliance) and How Bridgehead IT Can Help

The ever-changing regulatory landscape and the growing complexity of cyber threats make building and maintaining a robust GRC (Governance Risk and Compliance) program a challenge for many businesses. Therefore, considering outsourcing GRC can offer significant benefits. In this article, we’ll explore the challenges of in-house GRC and how Bridgehead IT can be your one-stop shop for effective risk and compliance management.

Challenges of In-House GRC:

  • Cost and Time: Hiring and retaining top GRC specialists can be expensive and time-consuming. You’ll shoulder salary, benefit, and training costs, while the recruitment process itself takes time and resources.
  • Lack of Expertise: Finding qualified professionals with deep knowledge of various compliance frameworks and industry regulations is difficult. This can leave your organization vulnerable to gaps in compliance. According to Hyperproof’s 2024 IT Risk and Compliance Benchmark Report, 49% of respondents struggle with identifying critical risks to prioritize remediations. This statistic highlights the need for specialized expertise.
  • Split Focus: Internal IT staff often get bogged down with complex and time-consuming GRC tasks. This takes away from core business initiatives. Therefore less time is spent on normal operating processes and less time spent on developing a comprehensive GRC program.
  • Staying Ahead of the Curve: Regulations and threats constantly evolve. Keeping your Governance Risk and Compliance program up-to-date requires ongoing research and adaptation.
