Governance, Risk Management and Compliance (GRC) have been largely stuck in the same way of doing things for decades. The rise of SRE and its methods and practices provides a unique opportunity for GRC functions to radically re-think their role and what would be better managed by SRE functions in keeping organisations secure, by leveraging new ways to think about operational risk, being able to answer "how much security?" and integrating analysis of trade-offs and constraints which SRE already figured out in the context of reliability. Security needs that too
