Infographic – The Road to GRC Implementation Success! Avoid These 8 Crippling Pain Points

Holly Butterworth | June 10, 2021

Whether you are looking to implement new GRC software or change an existing GRC platform to something more suited to your needs, there is lots to consider!

Without proper planning and scoping, you may end up with a solution that doesn’t meet the individual requirements of your business, has hidden customisation costs, or doesn’t get the uptake required due to lack of buy-in from leadership and poor staff training.

To make sure your next GRC implementation is a success (or work out where your last one went wrong), check out these 8 crippling pain points of GRC implementation, to make sure you avoid them.

Consolidated GRC: One Platform, Countless Benefits

Andrew Cutter | May 5, 2021

In the modern business world, where doing things holistically is a Board directive, adopting an enterprise-wide approach to managing governance, risk and compliance (GRC) is a no-brainer. Unlike other business philosophies that have come and gone, this is no fad; it is a forward-thinking way of working that has taken root across industries. Unfortunately, organizations often struggle to implement GRC in an integrated and synchronized manner, aligned with business processes and strategic objectives – and it is easy to see why.

The risk race: using integrated risk management to keep pace with the pharma industry

Andrew Cutter | April 15, 2021

A quick check of the global pharmaceutical (pharma) industry’s temperature shows that it is in good health: worth approximately $934.8 billion in 2017, it is estimated to reach over $1,170 billion this year. This encouraging prognosis has been aided by several factors – from rising incomes and enhanced medical infrastructures to rapid advancements in the treatment of chronic diseases and the prevalence of patented products.

Accountability in the financial services sector: time to toughen up!

Daniel Kandola | April 13, 2021

We hear a lot about the ‘risk landscape’: a turbulent place where change lurks around almost every corner and variables abound. This powerful metaphor brings to life the need for firms in the financial services sector to navigate through the risks and pitfalls between where they currently are as an enterprise, and where they should be. One event – the global financial crisis – reshaped the topography of the space by changing business conditions and regulatory requirements. Analysts now identify three distinct periods within the financial services risk landscape over the last two decades:

How organizations can #ChooseToChallenge to mitigate risks


“In times of adversity and change, we really diskover who we are and what we’re made of”.

Camms clients #ChooseToChallenge

Suzanne Degun & Alex Kerr-Grant | March 7, 2021

When you choose to challenge, you choose to create change. How will you challenge today, to change tomorrow?

Year on year, International Women’s Day has grown to illustrate the relevance and joy that comes with challenging the status quo, sharing experiences, and taking pivotal steps towards progress together. While this year’s 
International Women’s Day is bound to be quite different with the ongoing pandemic crisis, it remains a global day to celebrate the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women and raise awareness against gender bias. 

The cost of keeping risk and strategy separate is often success.

Daniel Kandola | February 11, 2021

It might sound extreme, but the cost of keeping risk management and corporate strategy separate can be the success of your organization.

All too often the senior team focus on setting the big picture strategy, with risk and compliance working at a purely operational level.

Here at Camms we have been working over the last 20 years to eradicate this diskonnect, and give organizations the right tools for success.

In our recent webinar, The Journey to Success Starts with Risk & Strategy Integration, which I co-hosted alongside our guest speaker Norman Marks, he shared his views about improving business outcomes and success by bringing risk and strategy together.

Creating a safety-conscious culture from the top-down and bottom-up

Adam Collins | February 1, 2021

Words without substance are often par for the course in the world of workplace health and safety (WHS). How often do we hear executives exclaim that they are planning to adopt a holistic approach to WHS that lays the foundation for a top-down and bottom-up culture, but fail to turn their good intentions into action? This commendable strategy might sound good in boardrooms and look good on paper, but all too often it lacks the structure required to do anything meaningful about it. So, how can businesses successfully ensure this common goal is converted from hollow buzzwords into a proactive WHS culture?

Your GRC Strategy in 2021: Setting a New Horizon

Andrew Cutter | January 21, 2021

When looking ahead through 2021, it’s understandable that business leaders around the globe will be feeling apprehensive about locking in their strategic plans. While most businesses traditionally look to set strategy and a roadmap at the beginning of the year, now is the time to consider a new perspective – a fresh take that supports the “new world” momentum of 2020 into 2021 and beyond.

Cultivating a Risk Aware Culture for Growth

Adam Collins | January 18, 2021

While 2021 might already be a couple of weeks old, the question remains: has your organization taken the time to look back on 2020 and re-evaluate how prepared it was to support its employees and customers, while continuing to deliver critical services and products during the turbulent times that the COVID-19 pandemic brought on? 

The 8 Crippling Pain Points of GRC Implementation: And How Best to Avoid Them

Holly Butterworth | January 13, 2021

We don’t need to channel our inner historian to chart the Governance, Risk and Compliance (GRC) timeline. While organizations 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.

Why reporting cyber risks is essential to combating cyber crime

Aaron Mullins | November 12, 2020

If you’ve been following the news in 2020, and let’s be fair, who hasn’t, you may have noticed – between the headlines of US election drama and burgeoning pandemic numbers – that cyber crime is well and truly on the rise.

From Australian Prime Minister, Scott Morrison’s alarming announcement in June, that a foreign government had been diskovered undertaking “malicious” cyber attacks against Australian government agencies; to the numerous hacking scandals plaguing the 2020 US election race.

But it’s not just the largest organizations who are at risk of cyber attacks – many organizations and businesses moving to work-from-home arrangements earlier this year fell victim to opportunistic cyber criminals, making the most of easy access to remote IT systems.

In September, global IT and tech news site ZDNet, reported that there had been a “sharp rise in sophisticated hands-on hacking campaigns” in 2020, with the first half of the year showing more incidents than all of 2019.

The findings came from a report from cyber security company Crowdstrike, and were based on “potential hands-on intrusions” identified by their research team.

“The first half of 2020 saw 41,000 intrusions, a higher figure than the 35,000 detected during all of 2019, according to the company,” Danny Palmer, author of the ZDNet article reported.

“Hands-on campaigns are based around hackers gaining access to the network – often via leaked or stolen credentials to an employee account or an exposed RDP server – then using the legitimate access those accounts or systems offer to move across the network, gradually securing the means to gain more and more access.”

Transport and Logistics: The tipping point of 2020 for organizational resilience

Daniel Kandola | October 1, 2020

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 organizational resilience into sharp focus: the COVID-19 pandemic.  

The FinCEN Files: Financial corruption and complicity highlights need for cultural change

Beau Murfitt | September 25, 2020

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.

Public Sector: The tipping point of 2020 for organizational resilience

Daniel Kandola | September 17, 2020

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 organizational resilience.

Defence Sector: The tipping point of 2020 for organizational resilience

Daniel Kandola | September 10, 2020

What a difference a year can make. Cast your mind back to 2019: the global defense 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 defense 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.
