The GRTC is an industry-led centre of excellence for innovation and research in semantic technologies for GRC in financial services. Our mission is to research and develop industry-ready GRC solutions for the financial services industry to help industry stakeholders commercialise related GRC semantic technologies. The goal of the GRCTC is to build a portfolio of innovative, applied research projects that collectively address the significant challenges facing the financial industry in terms of Governance, Risk and Compliance. To achieve this we are in the process of developing a suite of GRC ontology and process models, domainspecific GRC maturity models, risk assessment tools, and a repository that contains the semantics captured by researchers undertaking research in these areas. These semantic knowledge bases and process models will provide the foundation for GRC solutions to be developed by software enterprises, financial services organisations, technology and services vendors, content providers, and regulators – nationally and internationally.
