Governance, Risk, and Compliance

Make sure your organization is meeting all requirements and minimizing risks

Fortis governance, risk, and compliance (GRC) services help your organization determine its current risk posture, navigate security and compliance requirements, as well as better align people, processes, and technology with overall business goals. Our experienced and highly certified consultants understand the challenges associated with maintaining a strong and secure environment that meets ever-changing regulatory standards. As a result, we offer an objective, data-driven perspective focused on identifying potential weaknesses and compliance gaps.


  • Create, track, store, and manage all digital assets across business units and departments through discovery and classification methodologies

Fortis recommends organizations take a streamlined and integrated approach to their governance, risk, and compliance initiatives. This reduces the “siloing” of systems that often create duplicate or contradictory processes by making things easier to manage and understand, while saving a significant amount of time, effort, and money. Our engagement methodology includes eight distinct focus areas intended to provide a comprehensive look at how your technology aligns with current GRC standards and organizational initiatives.
