Governance refers to the processes and structures that guide and manage an organization’s decision-making, accountability, and performance. It involves establishing policies, procedures, and standards to ensure that an organization operates in a responsible and ethical manner, meets legal and regulatory requirements, and achieves its objectives.


Risk management, on the other hand, involves identifying, assessing, and mitigating potential risks that could impact an organization’s ability to achieve its goals. This includes analyzing the internal and external factors that could lead to risks, evaluating the likelihood and impact of those risks, and implementing strategies to minimize or avoid them.


Compliance refers to the process of adhering to laws, regulations, standards, and ethical practices applicable to an organization’s operations. It involves implementing and monitoring effective policies, procedures, and controls to ensure organizational activities meet legal obligations and industry guidelines, thus mitigating risk and maintaining integrity.

Together, governance and risk management provide a framework for an organization to effectively manage its operations, minimize potential risks, and ensure compliance with legal and regulatory requirements. This helps organizations to build trust with stakeholders, protect their reputation, and ultimately achieve long-term success.
