PORTLAND, Ore. — November 27, 2023 – NAVEX, the global leader in integrated risk and compliance management software, today announced its partnership with Risk Crew LTD, an elite, full-service cyber and information security risk, compliance, and penetration testing consultancy. This new collaboration benefits chief compliance officers (CCOs) and chief information security officers (CISOs) as they partner to build and mature a holistic, enterprise-wide governance, risk, and compliance (GRC) program.
CCOs are responsible for enforcing compliance with cybersecurity policies, breach response procedures, and disclosure requirements. These regulatory obligations cannot be achieved without fully and transparently understanding the data security and cybersecurity efforts being undertaken by the IT team. As a result, close collaboration between CCOs and CISOs is essential. Together, these leaders can craft cybersecurity best practices for their organizations and third parties, along with disclosure obligations.
To help CCOs and CISOs achieve these goals mutually, the NAVEX and Risk Crew LTD partnership brings together professional expertise in GRC program implementation, change management, and ongoing strategy development with a holistic GRC information system (GRC-IS). This gives crucial support for implementing and automating GRC policies and processes that address ongoing risk and compliance issues such as employee engagement, third parties, IT, and more.
“Most CCOs are not technology experts, just as CISOs are typically not regulatory compliance experts,” says John Hollett, Vice President, Partners at NAVEX. “For this reason and more, we advocate breaking down silos between functions that work on GRC by bringing together GRC information systems such as the ones offered by NAVEX and complementary information security services as offered by Risk Crew LTD. Together, these functions equip customers with the tools to navigate the cyber landscape whilst staying compliant.”
As the cyber threat landscape continues to grow, organizations face an array of cyber and information security risks — from security vulnerabilities and compliance gaps to data breaches. To mitigate these risks and protect critical information assets, Risk Crew LTD provides expert advice to help organizations protect their systems. This is further fortified through a GRC information system.
Richard Hollis, CEO at Risk Crew LTD, comments, “Our commitment is to help organizations cost-effectively implement and maintain the security controls required for compliance. This partnership with NAVEX enables us to combine our expertise to provide innovative solutions for information security programs.”
