The GRC Academy

We provide the learning experiences that provide GRC professionals with the skills to assess the security and compliance of intelligent systems. This includes a Foundations in Auditing AI/ML certificate.

Strategy & Design

Companies are experiencing a profound transformation. We help companies navigate the complexities of disruptive technology by designing emergent technology aware GRC strategies and frameworks.

Risk & Explainability

We perform risk & explainability assessments of thinking systems by validating that the design, modeling, testing and monitoring stages of the systems result in accurate results and ensure the safety and security of users.

Audit & Compliance

We audit and assess the design, deployment, and operation of intelligent ecosystems to ensure compliance with cybersecurity and privacy frameworks, such as ISO 27001, SOC 2 Type 2, NIST, GDPR, CCPA, etc.

GRCTV

Coming to you live, GRCTV is a joint venture designed to deliver high-quality streaming experiences with industry experts and thought leaders discussing GRC and future technologies. Video, podcasts, and ClubHouse chats coming soon!

We make a difference

We understand the impact of
emergent tech on your business

The world is becoming a hyper instrumented interconnected mesh comprised of AI-powered digital assistants spanning across virtual worlds, biological and physical worlds. As these worlds collide, we will see an unprecedented number of “big bang disruptions ” that herald the dawn of the 4th industrial revolution.

Yet, with all advancements, there is risk. Attackers are better and faster than us at adapting to, leveraging and exploiting disruption. In a future where speed and agility are defining factors, they have the edge.

In the natural world, organisms with fast adaptable immune systems not only survive but thrive. Cybersecurity will need to evolve.

The GRC Center analyzes technology trends that will define the boundaries of potential futures and how attackers will leverage and exploit them.  We will provide a view into near term future cybersecurity concepts and discuss predicted cybersecurity technologies to protect against the threats of the future
