Transferring products from A to B quickly and efficiently is the name of the game in the constantly moving world of transportation and logistics. Unfortunately, a myriad of variables means this process is rarely as easy as ABC at the best of times – and 2020 is proving more algebra than alphabet. Navigating a clear course within the sector has never been so challenging. Existing risks have been overshadowed – or in some cases accelerated – by an unprecedented global event that has brought the importance of organisational resilience into sharp focus: the COVID-19 pandemic.

Major banking institutions have been at pains to stress their determination to overhaul their ability to combat financial crime of late – following a string of high-profile corruption scandals. Unfortunately, these claims appear to be words without substance after a disturbing tale of leaked documents, dirty money, and international crime emerged – one that sounds more like something from a Netflix crime drama than the world of regulatory compliance.

The rapid spread of the COVID-19 pandemic has completely blindsided society in 2020, with devastating effect. But was this cataclysmic event a black swan? It appears not. According to the National Risk Register – an overview of the risks of major emergencies that could impact the UK in the next five years – the threat of a pandemic was firmly on the government’s radar: “experts agree that there is a high probability of another influenza pandemic occurring, but it is impossible to forecast its exact timing or the precise nature of its impact.” In fact, of all the high consequence risks outlined in the register – from severe weather to terrorist attacks – a pandemic was considered to have the highest potential impact.
This threat wasn’t classified information reserved for senior figures in Whitehall; it had filtered down to local government level. Take Camden Council, for example, which – like other local authorities – already had information about pandemic risk fed to them by Public Health England. Camden subsequently rated a ‘pandemic flu’ as a 4/5 likelihood and 5/5 for potential damage on its risk register – proof that more high-profile risks like terror and cyber-attacks weren’t their only focus when it came to organisational resilience.

What a difference a year can make. Cast your mind back to 2019: the global defence sector was on the offensive due to budget increases and military modernisation was the plan of attack, as growing security concerns forced governments to invest heavily in new equipment. So much so that international defence expenditure was forecast to grow between 3% and 4% in 2020 to reach an estimated US$1.9 trillion – driven by increased spending in the US, Russia, China and India.

Sustainable Software Development refers to a set of principles and practices which enables a team to maintain an optimal speed in development indefinitely for the sustainability of the development team and ergo, the company.
We don’t need to channel our inner historian to chart the Governance, Risk and Compliance (GRC) timeline. While organisations have been governed, and risk and compliance managed, for as long as we can remember, the GRC acronym is still a relatively modern-day approach – first entering the common vernacular in 2003. Fast-forward four years and the fledgling concept began shifting through the gears, when the first academic paper on the subject was written by OCEG founder Scott Mitchell and published in the International Journal of Disclosure and Governance – a ground-breaking moment that solidified the three elements and influenced an entire market of software and services.
Since then, the concept of GRC has matured into a vital strategy that helps businesses align activities to business goals, mitigate risk and manage compliance – all of which is set against the backdrop of an ever-changing regulatory landscape and an increasingly connected world. This has triggered a significant shift towards leveraging automated GRC strategies – so much so that the global GRC market is expected to expand to $64.61 billion by 2025.
Robust GRC platforms that facilitate vital GRC strategies require well planned and executed implementations. However, the process of implementing innovative GRC platforms in an integrated and synchronised manner is often mismanaged –leading to crippling pain points.
To say the GRC market is saturated is an understatement – a market in which one solution on the surface may look much the same as another. So, how can a business guarantee that its investment will pay off? By selecting and implementing a platform that’s right for them. Simply Googling a solution to see how an analyst – who has little or no knowledge of your specific requirements – rated its functionality simply isn’t enough. While functionality is important, it’s not the primary differentiator just because it’s easily comparable; there are three other key factors that you must consider:
