Introducing anecdotes Playbooks

Detecting and responding to GRC events is a crucial aspect of the security team's work. The importance lies in detecting these events as they occur and promptly addressing and remediating them to minimize the exposure to potential risks. As organizations mature, they often encounter a growing number of Compliance and security events within their programs. Alerts concerning these gaps can be accidentally missed by the GRC teams due to their overwhelming workload and the sheer volume of events. This leads to a prolonged detection-to-remediation process, ultimately resulting in exposure to risk.
