The enterprise governance, risk, and compliance market, also known as the eGRC market is anticipated to register a CAGR of 12.5% during the forecasted period of 2021 – 2026 – reveals a ResearchAndMarkets study.
In this digital era, enterprises operate in a complex as well as highly dynamic global ecosystem. Thus, managing the risk and compliance due to the impact of the alterations in the market is one of the major challenges that an organization faces.

This demands to be done in a way that supports the company’s goals. Some principal highlights from the study are –
