So how can solution providers go about building GRC practices within their businesses?<br /><a href="http://ad.doubleclick.net/jump/itp_net_en/rss-feed;sz=120x60;tile=1;ord=1256562199?" target="_blank"><img src="http://ad.doubleclick.net/ad/itp_net_en/rss-feed;sz=120x60;tile=1;ord=1256562199?" width="120" height="60" border="0" alt=""></a>Wed, 03 Feb 2016 11:29:00 +0000http://www.itp.net/606174-building-a-grc-practiceA changeable futureIn spite of the uncertainty about the regional economic outlook and the geo-political situation in Egypt, Yemen, Libya, Iraq and Levant, the Middle East channel stakeholders are optimistic about what the next 12 months will bring to their business.
