A LITTLE

BIT OF

BACK-

GROUND

GRC – Whether at large scale or small firms we view these functions independently but follow one common goal.

Cognitive – Our thinking is rooted in analyzing & processing knowledge to recognize and derive coherent, consequent, well-grounded and valid new strategies.

SINCE

2014

Cognitive GRC previously know as Cordium Asia Limited has been operating in Hong Kong since 2014.

Established by leading international consulting group operating since 1997.

OUR COGNITIVE MINDSET

Our Philosophy – “Cognition involves not only the things that go on inside our heads but also how these thoughts and mental processes influence our actions. Our attention to the world around us, memories of past events, understanding of language, judgments about how the world works, and abilities to solve problems all contribute to how we behave and interact with our surrounding environment.”

 

We are constantly learning and evolving. Our clients are constantly learning and evolving, and our team seeks to keep pace. As such our philosophy is to give our clients a commitment to provide evolving resources and a commitment to our staff to provide a challenging environment to continually enhance their skills.

Understanding of technical compliance requirements is important but knowing about the day to day operational challenges has always been the differentiating factor. Working with clients, service partners and consultants that can constructively challenge each other allows us to match quality clients with quality consultants and delivers the partnership we are trying to create.
