Key Risk Indicators (KRIs) are metrics used to measure Risk. Any piece of data that can perform this function may be considered a KRI.

KRIs are defined occurrences or trends that show whether a risk is more or less likely to occur over time.

Use the KRIs feature in TriLine GRC to periodically schedule and record measurements to monitor Key Risk Indicators. Action can then be taken if the indicator shows a deterioration in the trend or rating of a particular risk.
