across 6 continents in 180+ countries and 3,600+ cities.
We created GRC to help every organization and every person achieve objectives, address uncertainty and act with integrity. This approach to business, and to life, is what we call Principled Performance.
For over 20 years, we've set the standards for GRC and the associated critical disciplines that comprise GRC.
Our philosophy and values stem from experience as Fortune 50 executives, auditors, lawyers, IT professionals, research analysts and startup entrepreneurs.
We use this diverse experience to shape what we do and how we do it.
Allow anyone to join and participate, for free. Make most of our resources openly available, for free. Allow other organizations to build on our resources, for free.
The community is strongest when it comprises many professions (auditors, compliance managers, lawyers, risk officers, business operators), industries, sizes, geographies and cultures.
At times, we must lead the community in our mutual journey. At other times, we must listen and be led by the community.
Our passion for Principled Performance, GRC and all of our themes is evident in the way that we take firm positions in the community.
Documenting current best practices ensures that companies can reach parity. Inventing and experimenting with new practices pushes us forward.
Perfect can be the enemy of the good. We err on the side of capturing real world feedback early and often.
20 years ago OCEG was just an idea on a literal "back of a napkin" that aimed to solve the $1 Trillion problem of organizational misconduct, mistakes and miscalculations.
