Simply the tasks of your internal control teams
Automate your control processes with Brainwave GRC
Internal control now has a vast scope of responsibility: compliance checks, the definition and the proper application of matrices of segregation of duties (SoD), the implementation of control plans and the resulting performance indicators, implementing the remediation processes, etc.

It is therefore important to strengthen and empower these teams to complete their tasks. The Brainwave Identity GRC solution improves the working conditions of internal auditors and increases the effectiveness of internal control teams over time.
