Relationship Visualization:  A powerful new view to risk and compliance data and relationships

Studies suggest that 90 percent of what we learn occurs visually. That’s not hard to believe when you realize how much more our attention is drawn to graphs and images rather than text and figures. “A picture is worth 1,000 words” could not be more true.83810


For risk and process owners, it isn’t just how much you can learn visually that’s critical – it’s also how much more quickly you can process GRC information in order to take necessary action.


You spend considerable time analyzing n-tier compliance reports trying to relate risks to assets and identify controls that require attention or assessment. The ability to more easily understand data objects and their relationships allows you to make greater sense of increasingly complex risk and compliance data. Most importantly, your time is valuable.  You need to identify and solve risk and compliance problems much more quickly.

We think you’ll be as excited as we are about Relationship Visualization, a powerful new feature in our latest release of the RSA Archer GRC Platform that can be used in all RSA Archer Solutions.


Relationship Visualization allows you to quickly understand relationships between risk and compliance data records by visually depicting the connections between these elements. You can quickly navigate relationships to get right to the key attributes and commonalities between data objects, and identify the business impact, risk and scope -- or “universe”-- that’s impacted by each object.


With just the click of your mouse, Relationship Visualization gives you a visual depiction of GRC data objects and relationships. This view can reveal patterns that could go unnoticed in a standard report and helps analysts identify and escalate high risk issues to assure they are addressed.
