Welcome to the International Governance & Compliance Association (IGCA), the fastest growing global community of GRC professionals.

IGCA is a place for knowledge-exchange, professional networking and idea incubation.

The Governance, Risk and Compliance (GRC) requirements are evolving at a pace that makes it challenging for professionals to follow and manage all aspects of this complex ecosystem.

Our vision is to connect the GRC community, enabling professionals and organisations to operate successfully and with integrity in a reliable and forward-looking way within a regulated environment. We envision a GRC sector that is more welcoming and appealing for new professionals.

Our values mark who we are as a global professional organisation. They define the way we collaborate and engage with our members, partners and civil society at large.

We are strong advocates of innovation. Sharing our knowledge and best practices whilst building on our experience and expertise, we are devoted to bringing together governance, risk and compliance with disruptive sectors such as cybersecurity, fintech, artificial intelligence (AI), big data and blockchain.

Our certification programs aim to raise the standards of ethics and integrity in the world of compliance, governance and risk, whilst boosting our industry’s knowledge and understanding of new technologies.

These programs cover a wide range of topics including  governance, risk management and compliance, all delivered by accredited training centres.

We also provide a platform where professionals can network and share ideas with fellow colleagues from all over the world. By exchanging ideas and know-how, we identify trends and seek solutions. Being part of our GRC community gives you the opportunity to interact with like-minded professionals who strive for innovation and forward-thinking ideas.

In a rapidly evolving international environment, we pride ourselves in our flexibility to meet the changing market requirements and trends. To this end, IGCA addresses the global community, uniting members from Europe, Africa, North and South America, Oceania and Asia.
