SASŪ Enterprise GRC
About SAS Enterprise GRC
SAS Enterprise GRC is a Web-based application that automates the management of governance, risk, and compliance (GRC) data. Specifically, it facilitates the entry, collection, transfer, storage, tracking, and reporting of operational losses, gains, recoveries, and key risk indicators (KRIs) that are drawn from multiple locations across an organization.
SAS Enterprise GRC can also be used to do the following:
- conduct audits
- manage policies
- conduct risk and control assessments
- assess scenarios
- test controls
- investigate incidents
- create and track issues and develop action plans
Each of these activities can be tied to other activities in the system. Therefore, SAS Enterprise GRC provides an integrated and centralized framework for collecting, managing, and storing GRC information.
The most current release is SAS Enterprise GRC 5.1.
What's New in SAS Enterprise GRC 5.1
SAS Enterprise GRC 5.1 has a number of new features, which include, but are not limited to, the following:
- A redesigned user interface
The user interface has been redesigned. This includes replacement of tabs and subtabs with customizable menus, and improvements to navigation for mobile devices. In addition, the home page has been redesigned to allow for more customization, and the task list is now a table that can be filtered. In addition, the home page can now include SAS BI Dashboard elements.
- Support for Microsoft SQL Server 2008
SAS Enterprise GRC now supports the use of Microsoft SQL Server 2008 databases.
- Improved integration with SAS Workflow Studio
A number of new workflow templates have been added for this release, including the integration of incident management with SAS Workflow Studio. In addition, workflow templates have been created for managing risks, controls, and potential impacts.
- Enhancements to reporting
SAS Enterprise GRC 5.1 has improved out of the box integration with SAS BI Dashboard and SAS Information Map Studio for reporting.
- Support for Risk and Scenario Impacts
SAS Enterprise GRC now enables the cataloguing of potential future impacts. This enables users to predict and enter potential impacts for risks and scenarios before a loss event occurs.
- Support for Scenario Topics
A new business object called a scenario topic can now be created. Scenario topics enable you to identify areas or topics that should be covered for performing scenario analysis.
- Support for the independence of Issues and Action Plans
Action plans can be created independently of issues. This allows for more operational flexibility. For example, an action plan could be created to respond to incidents or KRIs without requiring issue creation.
