Risk Management

Record, analyse and treat your organisations risks. Easily view and prioritise your risks, and development treatment plans.

Policy Management

Remove the burden of “Document Control” blocks and tracking policy reviews. Use xGRC® to manage your policy versions, changes, and reviews.

Information Asset Management

Knowing what you have is critical to ensuring effective risk management. Recording, classifying, and assigning controls to your assets simplifies the process of ensuring the protection of the asset.

Incident Management

No organisation wants to have an incident, but if an incident does occur, it is important to ensure that it is appropriately managed. xGRC® Ascend Incident Management allows you to easily keep track of incidents, run through incident response checklists, record evidence, and record lessons learned.

Agreements Management

As organisations increase their focus on risk management, it is common that requirements (e.g. cyber controls, data breach notifications,etc.) are included as part of agreements. Agreements Management ensures compliance of controls that are included in agreements and contracts to help maintain compliance.

Vulnerability Management

Track and prioritise your key vulnerabilities and their remediation status. Whether a new vulnerability has been published or a recent vulnerability scan or penetration test has highlighted a vulnerability in your organisation, the xGRC® Ascend vulnerability management module ensures you stay on top of it.
