Compliance is worth nothing without governance

We have developed a GRC platform where you can combine your governance, risk management, and compliance efforts.

How are the three areas so connected?

You need to see governance as a series of activities and tasks that help you document that you are compliant with the specific requirement and demands. At the same time, the management ensures that you maintain and control your compliance efforts going forward.

In addition, you can integrate your risk management into the same solution and set up controls for all your risk management.

Thus, everyone involved only needs to know one system, and everything is documented identically across the different areas while, at the same time, efficiency increases.

Well-known challenges with the control work

As a department manager, you must perform many controls, and as you are probably aware of, errors occurring from lack of control can have massive consequences.

However, it can be challenging getting a full overview in order to avoid such errors. At the same time, it takes a high level of trust towards your coworkers when working with controls in Excel or Outlook. Doubt can quickly arise because you don't know how far the organization has come with your controls due to a lack of transparency.

In addition, you probably also know that using Excel to document your controls can be a challenge.

With RISMA's solution, you get system supported governance that systematizes and automates your controls, ensuring that you can minimize the risk of errors and feel safe that your control work is on track.

You always have a full overview and up to date with the status of controls within the organization.

The features of our governance solution

Here, you have an overview of many of the features in our governance solution. These help you incorporate your controls in an annual wheel so you can maintain your compliance efforts.

Be in control of the annual wheel


You can automate your controls by incorporating them in an annual wheel, assigning roles, and choosing a frequency for how often you need to complete them.


Customize your controls with the content you want to collect in order to match the different control areas.


Document the work performance of the individual controls on both the control owner level and on the company level

Clear ownership


Manage who has the different responsibilities connected to the control and the potential changes made to the different responsibilities.


Escalate a control from one level of responsibility to the next in order for it to be assessed and approved.


Create visibility and transparency of which tasks the individual employees and departments complete and how far they are in the automatic workflow.

Visualize effort


Tailor your targeted reports to how much content and data you want to gather on the different levels.


Get structured documentation and reporting through clear dashboards which makes it easier for you to get an overview and take stock of the conditions.


You get documentation of your on-going efforts that you can save, so it is easy to find and present to internal auditors or external supervision.

Go into details


By the help of the different user levels and access restrictions, you can keep controls separate and independent of each other.


With descriptions on the individual controls, you ensure that your colleagues have the necessary knowledge to handle the control.


Individual controls are always logged with the date and time of when last completed. This gives you proof of whether they have been in a timely manner.

Governance step by step - based on the PDCA management method

Plan - plan for improvement: In step one, we help you identify and place your many controls in the system. You only have to set up your controls the first time. Afterwards, they will automatically be sent to relevant employees who have to manage or approve them.
Do – complete your controls: In step two, relevant employees, and managers, oversee or approve the controls which they will be notified about through emails. This will happen automatically, ensuring that no task will fall through the cracks. In addition, you can make sure that if a very important task is not done on time, it can be forwarded to other employees.
Check - learn from the output and correct: As the controls are completed, it is possible to escalate them to the 2nd line control level where other colleagues approve them or take samples. In the 3rd line control level, either internal or external auditors check that the samples are in order.
Act - Set up improvements: In the final step of the process, you continuously adjust the individual controls. This will ensure systematic follow-up and streamline your governance work.

Here are some answers to questions we are often asked. If you are still missing answers to your questions, we are always happy to help.
Contact us

How many controls levels should we have?

How many control levels should we have?

  • Line control – the ones completion the controls
  • Random checks - those who take samples and check if the controls have been completed
  • Internal/external auditors - those who make sure that random checks have been made.

What will happen when key employees change their job?

Unfortunately, it happens that you have to say goodbye to one of your key employees. When that happens, RISMA will move all tasks to the new employee. The controls and its descriptions will help the new employee get started on the tasks

Can auditors access relevant parts of RISMA’s software?

Yes, they can. You only have to grant access to a specific task to the auditors'. Then they will be able to extract the documentation, they need.

Can I enter confidential information into RISMA’s software?

Differentiated user access ensures that you have full control of what content the individual users can see and manage. This allows you to set up the governance solution so that only a few employees have access to confidential information.
