Governance, Risk and Compliance (GRC) evaluates and communicates risk, and advises on “where the line is” as it pertains to compliance, standards, policy, and other requirements set by the university.

We provide university administration, faculty, and staff with an understanding of their posture to enable more informed decisions. Ultimately, final decisions as to risk and risk accepatance are up to authorized university leadership.

If you are unsure who can officially accept certain risks, what the applicable processes look like, who the data stewards for certain data types are, or who the risk holder might be for an existing gap, GRC can help.

If you are working with university data, one way to begin is to review the way that data is classified and to take a data classification survey
