To ensure we are compliant with state and federal laws and regulations, the ServiceHub GRC module will automate many processes. Audit-related activities, information and artifacts will now be saved in a single repository. This module is also used to process and manage all security policy exception requests and to manage the Colorado Information Security Policies (CISPs) throughout the entire life cycle.
Note: The documents on this page are only available to those logged in to their state Google account.
Why is GRC important to me? The ServiceHub GRC module:
All audit-related activities (audit inquiries, findings, remediations).
All secure configuration exception requests.
All information security policy reviews and approvals.
All evidence requests (initiation, remediation and, if needed, security policy exception request).
All control attestations (providing information and evidence on whether the requirements of a particular control (i.e., safeguard from the Colorado Information Security Policies [CISP]) have been implemented.
All security risk assessments.
Who will see changes?
Those employees and contractors who have GRC-related permissions in ServiceHub can view additional items in the ServiceHub navigator. (e.g., Policy and Compliance, Evidence Request, My Policy Reviews, etc.). These components of the GRC tool and workflows will remain empty unless or until you are assigned any GRC-related task. Any OIT/agency employee or contractor assigned a GRC-related task should follow ServiceHub GRC-defined processes.
