GRCP - GRC Professional Certification

What Is The GRC Auditor Certification?

The GRCA certifies that an individual has the core understanding and skills to assess, evaluate, and audit GRC capabilities.

This certification is perfect for any professional who wants to review and provide assurance to management and the board that the GRC capability, or some subset of capabilities are designed and operating effectively.

The GRCA builds on top of the GRCP Certification.
