Continuous monitoring is not a new concept, but historically, organizations have largely failed to realize its full potential because of a lack of collaboration across three-lines of defense, sufficient technology, access to data, or innovative thinking. How do these organizations overcome these roadblocks and start moving towards continuous monitoring? We recommend starting with the proven strategic approach of recalibrating the goals by identifying high impact areas, bridging the implementation gap with next gen advanced analytics and methods, and quantifying and socializing the benefits of continuous monitoring.
