A haphazard department and document centric approach for third party GRC compounds the problem and does not solve it. It is time for organizations to step back and mature their third party GRC approaches with a cross-functional and coordinated strategy and team to define and govern third party relationships. Organizations need to mature their third party governance with an integrated strategy, process, and architecture to manage the ecosystem of third party relationships with real-time information about third party performance, risk, and compliance, as well as how it impacts the organization.
GRC 20/20 has developed the Third Party GRC Maturity Model to articulate maturity in the Third Party GRC processes and provide organizations with a roadmap to support acceleration through their maturity journey.

Third-party GRC is aligned across several departments to provide consistent frameworks and processes. The organization addresses third party GRC through shared processes and information that achieve greater agility, efficiency and effectiveness. However, not all processes and information are completely integrated, and there is not an integrated view of third party performance.
Characteristics of the Integrated Maturity stage are:
Key elements that identify an organization is at the Integrated stage are:
Organizations in the Integrated Maturity stage answer many of the following questions affirmatively:
After reflecting on these points, it is time to next ask: is your organization at the Integrated stage of Third Party GRC Maturity?
