AUTOMATISEZ VOS PLANS DE CONTRÔLE POUR GAGNER EN EFFICACITÉ

 

  • Compliance

  • Mitigate risks over processes

 

Internal control has now a vast scope of responsibilities: compliance checks, the definition and proper application of segregation of duties (SoD) matrices, control plans’ implementation and the resulting KPIs, remediation processes’ implementation, etc.

For what purposes? The internal controller is no longer responsible for just controlling accounting and financial processes, but also for all other business processes. It is essential to account for significant risks to contribute to the management of daily activities, the proper use of resources, financial information’s reliability, and the organization’s regulatory compliance.

Business challenges

Dependance on IT

With the fragmentation and growth of data, including unstructured data, internal controllers depend on IT teams to collect the necessary data to carry out their control plans, remediation, and verification of SoD matrices’ application. But IT teams, overburdened by requests from all other departments, are often unable to provide data in a timely, comprehensive, and easy-to-use manner.

Solutions

Access informations continuously

Thanks to automated loading of all available data sources in the organization by the Brainwave Identity GRC solution, internal control can access the desired information.

In addition to relieving the IT team of some of its workload, the internal controller has access to a platform that can be used to run searches using natural language. He can also access information at any time.

Restreined visibility over access rights

Control plans management, remediation plans, and internal control measures are being undermined, particularly by a lack of constant visibility over user access rights, including granular rights within complex systems. Data fragmentation, increasing amounts of unstructured data, and a lack of resources are added to the problem, and the actions taken by internal control tend to spread ovetime. They are neither comprehensive nor effective enough due to a lack of reliable solutions.

A 360° and contextualized view

Thanks to automation and a natural language search engine, the Brainwave Identity GRC solution allows an internal controller to benefit from a global perspective and specify user access rights, including granular rights for all applications, shared directories, Active Directory, etc.

Through the collection and reconciliation of HR and organizational data with technical data, internal controllers have access to contextualized, updated information.

Complex SoD controls

Segregation of duties (SoD) matrices are now complex to define and apply because they are often difficult to properly model and test them to ensure their effectiveness.

Manage your SoD controls

Brainwave Identity GRC provides tools for testing SoD matrices prepared by your experts and applying them effectively. The solution enables this by automating inspections and defining workflows for reviewing inconsistencies and managing exceptions.

Brainwave Identity GRC also allows you to model your business processes from start to finish, in order to implement SoD controls across all applications.

Complicated control plans management

Factors such as a lack of visibility, sensitive business processes, complex internal collaboration, and working “by hand” often add up to undermine the proper implementation of control plans. It is indeed difficult to obtain an up-to-date, comprehensive view of the risks identified across all resources, along with the corrective actions that have been initiated.

Compliance, risk management, and business activities suffer from it.

Manage your control plans

The strategic step for effective control plans implementation is to integrate them into Brainwave Identity GRC. The solution ensures the automation of repetitive control tasks as well as manual reviews’management, the monitoring of exceptions, and the activities involved in correcting detected anomalies.

Internal controllers can then focus on high added-value tasks.

Problematic reporting possibilities

Without a history of control plans and implemented remediation measures, without an automated reporting tool, easy and quick publishing of complete and actionable reports is a daunting task for internal control in many organizations.

Editing personalized reports via Excel monopolizes time and resources. In addition, updating these reports is tedious.

Automate and customize your reports

Brainwave Identity GRC has a reporting engine that includes hundreds of customizable standard reports, tailored to your needs, whether for compliance reporting or the execution of control plans.

It is therefore possible to obtain the consolidation and distribution of control plans’ results that have been implemented. Thanks to the reporting engine, the results are concrete and workable.
