Taxes are certainly not fun, but there is something worse: an audit. Combine the two in a risk and compliance scenario and you have the onerous “audit tax,” a figurative term used to describe the expenses a company incurs when deploying resources and manpower to satisfy the burgeoning set of internal and external compliance and audit mandates. The good news is that there are ways to reduce the audit tax burden.
Managing IT risk is part of running any business these days. Regardless of what business you’re in, understanding IT risk can help you increase network security, reduce management costs and achieve greater compliance. Corporate leaders who fail to identify, assess and mitigate IT risk are setting themselves up for serious security breaches and financial losses down the road.

In many organizations the genesis of their GRC efforts can be traced back to a few isolated projects that were quick responses to external factors (e.g. scrambling to pass the first PCI audit, “What’s this HIPAA thing all about?”, etc.) To get these projects going people turned to their reliable “universal tool”, the spreadsheet. Suddenly spreadsheets became assessment tools, scoring programs, aggregated databases, report generators, etc. For these projects, spreadsheet-based GRC rose to the occasion and saved the day!
