When Governance, Risk, and Compliance (GRC) issues are in the headlines, it’s usually a bad thing. It’s only when a major data breach happens, or a company runs afoul of some regulation, that these important responsibilities get their time in the limelight. GRC & Me is here to shine a light on those individuals tasked with safeguarding their employers’ information and integrity, day in and day out. Tune in each month as host Megan Phee, Director of International Sales at LogicGate, and her guests explore the issues and ideas that give shape to these interconnected functions. Just as GRC touches many parts of a business, so too will the podcast delve into a wide array of concerns—from current events and modern methodologies to cultural nuances and game-changing developments. Join us and learn why GRC is so critical to the future of any organization, where the industry has been—and where it’s going.
A Conversation on Risk Quantification
Dustin Owens’ extensive background in GRC began with an undergraduate degree in computer information systems.
When he realized programming wasn’t his professional calling, he transitioned to the security and cybersecurity space — now, he’s accrued 25 years of experience in the field.
After being introduced to risk quantification in 2003 as part of the National Security Agency’s INFOSEC Assessment Methodology, Dustin hasn’t looked back.
As LogicGate’s Principal GRC Architect, he focuses heavily on how risk quantification can help obtain consistent risk findings that are accurately defined in monetary terms.
In this episode of GRC & Me, Dustin breaks down why organizations have much to benefit from adopting risk quantification practices to better assess, manage and respond to risk. Plus, it helps organizations better prioritize the activities that require more attention and investments.
“It makes it very easy to compare risk mitigation activities and whether they do risk acceptance or transfer risk, based on the amount of impact that that risk has to the business,” explains Dustin,” which allows organizations to “see if it makes sense to go in one direction versus another.”
The Results Are In! 2021 Risk Manager Insights
LogicGate’s Chief Marketing Officer Gina Hortatsos joins the podcast to discuss the findings. One of the surprising results is that while the vast majority (91%) acknowledged the importance of GRC programs to their organization, but only 45% of survey respondents said their current programs are extremely effective.
Resilience Beyond Business Continuity Planning
How can you best articulate the value of your security program to non-security professionals in your organization? Or even to board members?
It starts with asking questions. Five of them, to be exact.
Emily Heath, DocuSign’s Chief Trust & Security Officer, covers five questions or pillars to ensure you’re able to confidently speak about your company’s security program.
In this episode of GRC & Me, Emily returns to the podcast to discuss her advice for organizations seeking to drive transparency and competence with both their board of directors and customers. Because the pandemic has changed the risk landscape, Emily believes that the world of GRC must become more resilient. By that, she means organizations should improve their ability to rebound with minimal impact to business.
A global pandemic has taught both organizations and people that risk is everywhere. And while Emily, who also serves on the board of directors for LogicGate and NortonLifeLock, is determined to help organizations prepare for risks, she also finds time for the small things, such as the cooking blog she began during the pandemic.
Why Artificial Intelligence is Relevant to Regulatory Compliance
Brian Clark has had a front-row seat to both sides of the regulatory compliance coin: He was a regulator during the post-financial crisis in 2008. Years later, he transitioned to being a chief compliance officer and general counsel.
With such varied experience, the president and founder knew exactly what he set out to solve when he founded Ascent in 2015: simplifying the knowledge work required to keep up with regulations and maintain compliance.
To help clients build and automate repeatable compliance programs, Ascent employs artificial intelligence (AI) to produce knowledge sets and streamline processes — for example, it can produce an output in two minutes for a task that could take humans thousands of hours (it’s true!)
In an episode of GRC & Me, Brian explains why AI is the right tool for the job because it allows “people to unlock their potential and their time to focus on different activities.”

Peter Berger and David Ngu both work for global consulting firm Protiviti in the Netherlands, helping clients figure out how to integrate governance, risk management, and compliance technology into their workplace.
