IT GRC Overview
Managing IT Risk can be extremely challenging without the ability to correlate data across different security products and environments.
Identifying, prioritizing, managing, and communicating key IT risk and security metrics to Senior Management and line-of-business executives in a consistent and straightforward manner is even more difficult without a single view into your complex environment.
To ease the burden of compliance, Lynx Risk Manager provides real-time and continuous measurement of your security posture and compliance across the organization.
IT Risk Profiling
Ensure Comprehensive Visibility of IT Risk Exposure
Create a catalog of key information and processes unique to your business that need to be protected from IT risk. Business interests are mapped to assets and risk scenarios to provide a business risk context for IT resources.
Define asset groups with attribute-based criteria. Membership in a group is determined dynamically based on whether an asset’s risk profile matches the group’s criteria.
Award Winning Risk Intelligence Engine analyzes each asset’s risk profile to automatically identify the risks the asset is exposed to, required compliance mandates, and controls that must be implemented to satisfy both compliance and mitigate risk.
IT Controls Framework
Comprehensive Controls Framework
Risk and security cover more than just the technical controls you assess. LRM’s comprehensive controls model ensures end-to-end visibility of all technical, procedural, and physical control activities to ensure protection of information.
Support Multiple Compliance Mandates
Automatically harmonizes IT control frameworks with industry regulation requirements to ensure that controls are reasonable and sufficient to satisfy multiple compliance mandates using Network Frontiers’ industry-vetted, harmonized mapping of unique controls to compliance regulations which was developed and maintained in collaboration with industry experts, legal advisors, and standards-setting bodies across global regulations.
Assess Once, Comply with Many
Common controls (e.g. “Strong Passwords”) are normalized into a single control, which is cross-referenced to all standards and regulations that call for the requirement to eliminate overlapping control requirements that result from multiple standards and regulatory requirements.
Prove Compliance with Internal Policies
Demonstrates compliance with internal policies through a common assessment process by importing internal compliance and security policies and cross-referencing them to the harmonized controls framework.
Optimize Workflows using LRM's Library
Immediately understand the controls required to implement on Subjects and avoid time spent performing custom cross-walks across multiple requirements documents with access to over 400 Regulations and Standards documents that include full cross-references to supporting IT controls.
Quickly Mitigate IT Risk
Controls are automatically linked to the risk scenarios they help prevent, detect, or correct to demonstrates how IT controls can mitigate actual business IT risk.

COMPREHENSIVE COMPLIANCE REPORTING
Provides detailed compliance reports to satisfy internal and external auditors by demonstrating section-by-section status of your compliance with industry regulations, compliance mandates, and your own security policy.
MEASURE IT RISK TO BUSINESS IMPACT
IT Risk reports catalog security gaps and how they could affect key business interests to enables the communication of security gaps in a way that is easily understood by non-technical business stakeholders.
DELIVER METRICS FOR RAPID SECURITY ENFORCEMENT
Operational security reports provide detailed security gap information for departments within IT operations to support the communication of security gaps to IT operations teams and set specific expectations on remediation.
IMPROVE INTERNAL COMMUNICATION REGARDING IT RISK AND COMPLIANCE
Distill mountains of security gap analysis information into risk and compliance index scores that provide simple metrics to communicate your overall security, risk, and compliance posture.
QUICKLY DETERMINE TRENDS
Metrics on compliance, IT risk, and operational security are trended on a daily basis to demonstrate trends of security, risk, and compliance program improvement over time.
FOCUS ON METRICS VITAL TO YOUR BUSINESS
Track Key Performance Indicators with aggregate scores for user-defined subsets of controls and subjects against a target value. This enables you to keep a watchful eye on specific areas of interest with a simplified report card view of your security posture.
CUSTOMIZABLE DASHBOARDS HIGHLIGHT METRICS YOU NEED TO SEE
Combine existing dashboard widgets into a personalized custom view to allow individual users, such as executives, business owners, system owners, external auditors, and security professionals to easily view the key metrics that are important to them.
ENSURE RAPID REMEDIATION FOR HIGH PRIORITIES
Employ the heuristics engine to effectively analyze control scores to discover patterns, such as a certain group of subjects that contribute disproportionately to a poor compliance score, or a certain type of control that fails across a broad array of subjects. This allows you to quickly spot patterns in scoring information so that you can identify high-value remediation efforts.
REMEDIATION TRACKING TO IMPROVE SECURITY CONTROL DEFICIENCIES
Provide assignment and status tracking of remediation projects. Projects can be tracked according to ownership and deadlines. Upon completion of a project, scores can be automatically updated.
HIGHLIGHT IMPROVEMENTS IN SECURITY POSTURE
Enables you to prioritize resources to pursue remediation activities that will have the greatest impact to the business and reflect improvement in your security and IT risk metrics.
IMPROVE OPERATIONAL EFFICIENCIES USING MODELING AND FORECASTING
Create “what-if” project scenarios to optimize IT resources to see how that project or remediation will improve your risk and compliance metrics. This enables the prioritization of IT resources and remediation efforts based on the impact to metrics and compare remediation projects by cost and time estimates across all controls.
IMPROVE VISIBILITY ON CHANGES WITH AUTOMATED NOTIFICATIONS
Alerts are configurable to specific users/groups and provide notifications of key conditions and state changes within your security posture. This ensures that users are aware of security policy changes and that security administrators are notified of security posture changes, such as a server that is failing a critical control or an application that is overdue on an assessment.
