HEISC Governance, Risk, and Compliance Working Group

The Governance, Risk, and Compliance (GRC) Working Group provides resources and thought leadership around information security topics pertaining to governance, risk, privacy, policies, legal issues, and compliance. Their purpose is to identify, develop, and promote resources to help higher education institutions incorporate information security into the enterprise governance processes, implement information security risk management processes, and understand the implications of existing and proposed laws and industry standards on institutional policies and compliance. GRC members meet on the third Thursday each month (3-4 pm ET). New volunteers are welcome!
