What is Integrated Risk Management (IRM)?

Gartner defines Integrated Risk Management (IRM) as a set of practices and processes supported by a risk-aware culture and enabling technologies, that improves decision making and performance through an integrated view of how well an organization manages its unique set of risks.  Integrated Risk Management binds the processes that support areas of governance, risk and compliance (GRC).

What we do

Templar Shield works hand in hand with organizations and our technology partners to leverage Integrated Risk platform technology enabling organizations to modernize and automate their risk and compliance processes in order to take a business driven approach to corporate governance, IT and operational risk management, compliance, third party risk, audit, and security operations.

We begin with  development of a clear strategy and process aligned to standards of good practice. With clearly constructed processes, we then define technical specifications from business and functional requirements, and contrast integrated risk platform functionality against the business needs with both short term and long term strategies in mind. This approach streamlines reporting, improves risk management strategies, and provides insight for better decision making.
