3. Governance, Risk, Management
GRC system is a management strategy for an organization’s overall GRC, and regulatory compliance. GRC is an integrated set of abilities that enables an enterprise to maintain cyber security while also protecting its data. Information availability, Integrity, and Confidentiality are provided by the GRC system.
“Confidentiality is a set of regulations that restricts who has access to certain types of information; Integrity is a promise for the reliable and correct information, and availability is the assurance that authorized people will have reliable information access”.
“There are two roles in your company: one is to hire the employees and the other is paying them a salary. Assuming that hiring and paying wages to the same worker is a risk and that any worker in the organization has these roles, this can lead to fraud. However, via GRC, we could identify risks, mitigate them, and manage them so that they do not impact the company.”
4. The Essential Factors of Success Employee Centralization and GRC Controlled Access Integration
“Customers in SAP Success Factors Employee Central HCM were unable to handle access requests, provision Success Factors users, establish systems that permit them to recognize and minimize risk while guaranteeing compliance (This necessitates an examination of how you control and how you carry out your duties), and analyze risks of critical access and SOD for users.”
“Customers may utilize Access Control for monitoring access requests, evaluate Access Risks with Critical Permissions, Critical Action, SOD, provision SuccessFactors users, and Critical Roles due to this integration.”
“Customers may better handle compliance and risk, improve cybersecurity, identify and prohibit fraud, and optimize the controls as a result of this.”
“From a risk management standpoint, It makes a lot of sense to integrate SAP GRC and SAP HCM. Within the HR process itself, there is a variety of SOD and risks of sensitive access that must be carefully handled – just like any other risk of access.”

Methodology for Handling Risks
Violations or risks could be solved by either fixing the risks or mitigating them through control assignment.
The Best Approach to Risk Remediation
Before attempting to mitigate risk, the user should always seek to fix it. The approach for eliminating risks in roles is determined during the risk remediation phase. The remediation phase’s goal is to figure out what other options there are for resolving problems. Remediation is the process of removing risks from a system without relying on mitigation controls.
Instead of implementing mitigation controls, users should always look for a solution to remedy a risk, as mitigation might lead to unethical activities.
If the user is unable to eliminate the risk, he or she should consider mitigation. We assign the mitigation to lessen the risk’s impact. The user must create a risk mitigation control. Approver and Monitor should be included in the mitigation control as well.
