Integrates risk management of internal digital tools associated with digital products and services — such as cloud, mobile, social and big data — and third-party technologies. Examples include artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML), operational technology (OT) and the Internet of Things (IoT).

Further increase team efficiency by connecting your existing software and unstructured data to the solution, and by adopting other cross-functional integrated risk management modules to help coordinate actions across departments in charge of other risks and avoid redundancies.

Increase team efficiency by up to 30% and get a real-time view of your IT Security risks.


  • A fragmented view of risks.
  • Obligations, risks, opportunities and an ever-increasing workload with teams and budgets growing relatively slower than obligations.
  • Manual and repetitive tasks are still very present.
  • Operational staff with little autonomy.
  • Frequent use of spreadsheets and specialized software operating in silos, unsuitable for consolidation constraints and information updates.


  • Risks are sometimes poorly identified and prioritized.
  • Teams are overworked.
  • Redundant actions.
  • Too much time spent on low value-added tasks, risks of errors and omissions in essential obligations.


The IT Security Risk module helps your Organization address digital risks by:

  • Coordinating local, national, international and extraterritorial legal obligations and normative standards with each other.
  • Empowering operational staff to allow IT Security teams to only manage exceptions and have more time for analysis, recommendations and follow-up.
  • Coordinating teams and information systems and making the most of existing and untapped information (structured and unstructured data).
  • Automating time-consuming manual processes.

To achieve this, in addition to the powerful features common to the entire Smart Global Governance solution

Governance.Training and awareness plan.
Framework Manager.Dashboards and reports.
Planning.Automated gap analysis.
Dynamic risk mapping.Documentation, Central Source of Evidence.
Reliable audit trail.Monitoring, messaging, alerts, notifications.
Continuous monitoring.Collaborative remediation (tasks, exceptions, insurance, …)
Policy management.Translations.
Integration of existing information and data into the solution.

Collaborative evaluation.

    • Forms
    • Questionnaires
    • Automated collection of structured internal data
    • Automated collection of unstructured internal data (optional)

In addition, you benefit from ready-to-use reference frameworks to address the specificities of this risk and of your Organization

You can start working from your existing frameworks and gradually add new ones. The Smart Global Governance solution identifies gaps between your existing compliance program and your new obligations to provide you with the incremental requirements you need to implement.
