A comprehensive approach to risk
Governance, Risk, and Compliance (GRC) aligns capabilities, policies, assessments, metrics, and controls to reliably maintain data security, manage risk, and ensure compliance with industry security standards across every part of our business. Our approach includes:
We quickly respond to customer requests and inquiries for assurances and attestations regarding audits, certifications, or other security issues. By focusing on our customers, the GRC team can better address important security concerns related to our products and services.
Our third‑party security risk management program requires formal security risk assessments before initiating business relationships with partners, vendors, and others that require technical connections to our networks. All parties must strictly protect sensitive information, tightly control access, and follow privacy laws and regulations.
We engage and educate employees on evolving online and physical security risks—even simulating email phishing attacks that test knowledge and provide point-in-time learning—to increase diligence and improve understanding of their vital role in protecting against threats.
Our industry certifications
The GRC team works to achieve and maintain security certifications for various Nuance products and services with industry organizations, frameworks, and standards bodies—creating assurances and safeguards that support customer requirements. Our certifications include:
Where proactive meets preventative
Our Cyber Fusion Center (CFC) takes preventative and proactive measures to protect our networks, systems, and data from threats while adhering to security policies, standards, and controls across our infrastructure. All so you can trust the Nuance solutions you use every day. The CFC comprises:
Nuance products and services have security built in, not bolted on later. We analyze, test, and review products at any technology stack and every lifecycle stage—from inception through design, build, deployment, and decommissioning—while implementing risk‑based control objectives and applying industry best practices. SSE ensures we:
- Govern ourselves through policy, standards, training, compliance, and metrics.
- Develop products through secure design, architecture, code, threat modeling, and penetration testing; as well as secure deployment, maintenance, and support.
