Create a profile class

GRC managers create profile classes representing the types of things that will be part of the dependency model. Reports can be filtered to define relationships between the different profile classes. A profile class defines what a profile actually is. It differs from a profile type (for example, Business Services and Critical Business Services), in that a profile can belong to many profile types but a profile can have only one profile class (for example, Business Service).
