ERM vs GRC Software

If you are looking for a governance, risk, and compliance solution, you might be frustrated by the limitations and challenges of GRC software. GRC software can fail to provide a clear vision for your risk management and governance program, struggle to communicate the value and benefits of your program to your stakeholders, and rely on manual, outdated processes. 

That’s why we recommend Enterprise Risk Management as the better approach. Unlike GRC software, we take ERM seriously. LogicManager’s flexible and intuitive ERM software includes a comprehensive matrix of solutions that accelerate and amplify your risk management efforts to provide prioritization, business insights, and engagement with your stakeholders. Regardless of your role or responsibilities or how you structure your risk management and governance program, we have you covered.

Take a Risk-Based Approach to GRC

LogicManager ERM Software is not just another GRC tool, but a comprehensive and holistic approach that connects the dots between your GRC functions and your enterprise risk profile. ERM works because risk is the underlying link between GRC functions. If we recognize that each silo’s function – regardless of whether its labeled risk, compliance, or governance – is actually working to mitigate a subset of the organization’s enterprise risk, we suddenly begin to see commonalities and realize efficiency that results in bottom-line value. LogicManager helps you to create a risk-based culture that fosters collaboration, transparency, and accountability.

Frequently Asked Questions About GRC Software

GRC software is a technology solution that is meant to help organizations manage their governance, risk, and compliance processes. It typically integrates data and workflows from different sources and functions, such as internal audit, legal, IT, security, and regulatory affairs.

However, enterprise risk management software takes a more holistic and strategic approach to risk management, which makes it superior to GRC software solutions. ERM considers all types of risks that could affect an organization’s objectives, not just those related to governance and compliance. ERM also allows managers to shape the organization’s risk profile and appetite, rather than just following rules and regulations. ERM helps organizations create value and seize opportunities, while GRC can sometimes be seen as a cost center and a constraint. Therefore, depending on the organization’s needs and goals, ERM may be a more suitable and effective framework than GRC for managing risks and enhancing performance

To learn more about GRC vs. ERM, check out our guide.

GRC and ERM are both frameworks for managing risks and achieving organizational goals. However, they differ in their scope, approach, and focus. GRC is more narrow and prescriptive, focusing on specific governance, risk, and compliance functions and requirements. ERM is more holistic and principles-based, considering all types of risks and their impact on the organization’s objectives. ERM also allows more flexibility and innovation in shaping the organization’s risk profile and appetite, while GRC can be more rigid and rule-bound.

GRC is a structured way to manage risks and meet industry and government regulations. However, implementing GRC as a framework also has some downsides, such as:

  • It can be challenging to integrate risk management and compliance processes across different departments and business units, which may have their own data, technology, and objectives.
  • It can be costly and time-consuming to develop a comprehensive and flexible GRC framework that covers all the relevant regulations and policies, and to keep it updated as the business environment changes.
  • It can be difficult to measure the effectiveness and value of GRC activities, and to communicate them to senior management and stakeholders.
  • It can create a culture of over-compliance and risk aversion, which may stifle innovation and creativity.

Relying on GRC software is insufficient to handle today’s ever-changing risks and regulations. LogicManager recommends taking a risk-based approach that removes friction and fragmentation across the entire enterprise while placing risk at the heart of all business decisions.
