For senior team members, risk professionals, and board executives most risk management dashboards will offer a clear summary of the risk register, highlighting key focus areas and topics using graphs, pie charts, and data visualization tools. Many dashboards in GRC software are interactive and enable users to drill down into problem areas and conduct investigations and understand the financial impact of key risk areas across enterprise risk, operational risk, strategic risk, ESG risk and enterprise cyber risk.

Color-coding indicates the severity, likelihood, or impact of risks, and highlights control effectiveness, compliance status, and other key metrics.

Bow-tie visualizations

The dashboards in our GRC platform feature bow-tie visualizations – offering a structured framework for identifying, analyzing, and mitigating risks.
