New Protiviti Governance Portal 4.0 Makes It Easier for Businesses to Manage 
Compliance and Risk While Improving Business Performance 
Ability to Collaborate on GRC Effort Across Multiple Domains Enables Users to 
Experience "Your GRC" 
MENLO PARK, Calif., Dec. 13, 2012 /CNW/ - Protiviti (, a 
global consulting firm, has released the latest version of the Governance 
Portal designed to make it easier for organizations to solve the real-world 
governance, risk and compliance (GRC) challenges they face every day. 
Protiviti Governance Portal 4.0 is a major milestone in the development of GRC 
platforms, featuring a new user interface and new communication, collaboration 
and reporting capabilities that simplify GRC tasks and support business 
intelligence, data analysis and Big Data initiatives. The easy-to-deploy, 
easy-to-use online solution also supports extensive and flexible options, 
dubbed "Your GRC," that enable business users to work in their own functional 
areas — including enterprise performance and risk management, compliance, 
internal audit, IT governance and others — while still collaborating on a 
centralized, enterprise-wide GRC effort. The flexibility, simplicity and 
reporting capabilities of the Governance Portal make it easier for 
forward-thinking organizations to execute on GRC strategy while supporting 
improved business performance. 
"The latest version of the Governance Portal changes the way GRC platforms are 
used," said Scott Wisniewski, managing director, Risk Technologies, Protiviti. 
"To date, GRC systems have mostly been used as assurance tools. Effective GRC, 
though, is about proactively moving your business forward in an ethical 
manner. The Governance Portal 4.0 promotes communication and collaboration 
across the enterprise and enables individuals to rally around corporate 
strategies while fully understanding related strategies and tolerances. 
Recognizing the complexity of our customers' businesses, the new version of 
the Governance Portal allows stakeholder groups to tailor their individual 
approach while still aggregating up to a holistic corporate picture. We are 
pleased to present to our customers a tool that is more than a good assurance 
tool; it is a platform that will help our customers manage business 
Protiviti Governance Portal 4.0 features simplified functionality that makes 
it easier for customers in any industry to perform their GRC tasks and execute 
on their overall GRC strategy: 

    --  Your GRC – Protiviti Governance Portal 4.0 provides
        out-of-the-box templates for common GRC functional areas,
        allowing clients to implement the system and achieve results
        quickly. New configuration options also enable the system to
        accommodate different stakeholder requirements while still
        allowing for the aggregation of results into a single, holistic
        GRC view.
    --  Communication and Collaboration – Integration with
        Microsoft SharePoint enables seamless collaboration on
        documentation through a web-based interface that allows
        multiple individuals to work on documents at the same time. An
        advanced assessment engine helps customers more effectively
        communicate their strategies, objectives and policies via a
        user-friendly, wizard-driven method of obtaining business
        inputs, whether for risk assessment, policy awareness, impact
        analysis, action plan response management or any other GRC
    --  Management Information – Interactive dashboards, based on
        a published reporting model, allow clients to easily develop
        new reports without coding. The dashboards provide composite
        views of GRC information with the ability to drill-down into
        details. Ad hoc analysis can now be scheduled to allow lines of
        business to generate reports without impacting system

The Governance Portal is a flexible technology solution that provides the 
visibility and oversight organizations need to manage enterprise and 
operational risks, optimize internal audit processes, monitor compliance risk, 
reduce the cost of financial controls management and improve IT governance.
