What is GRC?

Governance, Risk and Compliance in one integrated tool. Most healthcare organizations use spreadsheets, documents and collaboration portals, as well as email threats and individual calendars to manage their GRC initiatives. This is inefficient, error prone, costly and a risk in itself. Streamline your compliance, risk, and policy management with Cyber Tygr’s GRC.

Healthcare organizations want to align their Privacy, Cybersecurity and IT activities to business goals, manage risk effectively and stay on top of compliance. GRC enables organizations to create and coordinate policies and controls and map them to regulatory and internal compliance requirements. This provides automation for many processes, which increases efficiency and reduces complexity.

GRC Suite is a S-a-a-S based integrated suite of solutions designed for small to medium sized healthcare organizations. Affordably and easily integrate Compliance, InfoSec, IT & Executive Leadership activities to protect patients, strengthen cybersecurity, improve compliance and reduce risk.

Improve Department Coordination

Because of HIPAA and other regulations, organizations have a developed a siloed view of privacy and cybersecurity. The Cyber Tygr GRC Suite is specifically designed to align the governance of privacy and cybersecurity controls, insuring the protection of patient’s personally identifiable information (PII) and compliance with complex regulations.


Governance provides an organization-wide framework for managing information and activities supporting the strategy, operations, regulatory, legal, risk and environmental requirements.

Because of HIPAA and other regulations, organizations have a siloed view of privacy and security. Privacy programs meet HIPAA compliance, but cybersecurity frameworks like the NIST CSF address risk relative to the administrative safeguards.

Information governance is an enterprise-wide program that considers all information an asset. Assets need to be protected and leveraged to support the daily activities of the business mission.


The GRC Suite is an economical solution allowing healthcare organizations to manage compliance including HIPAA’s requirement for Risk Analysis and Risk Management. The GRC Risk Module creates an accurate and thorough evaluation of the potential risks and likelihood vulnerabilities will be exploited, negatively impacting the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of Protected Health Information (PHI).

The central risk register, intuitive workflow and reporting are designed to assist in implementing security measures sufficient to reduce those risks and vulnerabilities to a reasonable and appropriate level.

HIPAA Risk Analysis

The Office for Civil Rights (OCR) issued guidance detailing the required elements of a Risk Analysis and defines them based on the NIST (SP) 800-30 framework. The GRC Risk Module’s foundation is also based on the NIST (SP) 800-30 framework, inherently documenting, auditing and managing these required elements: Scope, Threat, Vulnerability, Controls/Safeguards, Likelihood, Impact, Risk Level, etc. Risk Analysis Assessment Services

Vendor & Third Party Risk

Integrate the Vendor Risk Module into the GRC Suite to improve the control and security of Business Associate (BA) and Vendor access to sensitive data. Decrease cybersecurity risk exposure and increase compliance through automated workflow ensuring third parties have appropriate security practices to protect sensitive and confidential data.

Medical Device Inventory Integration

Integrate medical device detail from automated discovery tools for inclusion, supporting a more fully compliant Risk Analysis. Devices are automatically discovered on the network and grouped based on information gathered from network behavior and device communication traffic patterns allowing for increased security intelligence. This saves time and increases HIPAA compliance. Medical Device & IoT Inventory

Safeguard Management – Technical, Administrative and Physical

Link existing safeguards/controls from existing repositories to leverage ongoing risk reduction initiatives. Manage implementation of controls, inherent risk scores and treatment scores to determine your residual risk. Track control mitigation status, stay informed with task assignment completion and end user reminders. Technical Assessment Services


The GRC Compliance Module workflow satisfies the multiple regulations through normalization of compliance requirements. Pre-built templates and automated workflow leverage the most widely used regulations including HIPAA, PCI, NIST & GDPR.

Organizations can centralize the identification and inventory of existing controls and the requirements they are aligned against. Executive leadership can set the rules while allowing the related control activities to be developed and supported by stakeholders throughout the organization.

Gap Analysis – Policies Documented vs. Implemented

The GRC Compliance Module automates the management of requirements, controls and documented evidence. The administrative safeguard, Non-Technical Evaluation, requires healthcare organizations to review and document the level with which their security policies and procedures meet HIPAA Security Rule requirements. Gap Analysis Assessment Services

Key Concepts:
  • Manage Controls – How is the organization meeting requirements
  • Evidence Repository – Track tasks satisfied to support controls
  • Define Requirements – compliance objectives, audit findings, best practices
  • Manage Scope –related requirements, controls and evidence
  • Track Tasks – systematically monitor controls
  • Pre Built Templates – HIPAA, PCI, NIST, GDPR, etc.
