October 14, 2011 | Palo Alto, California: MetricStream Inc., the market leader in enterprise-wide Governance, Risk and Compliance (GRC) solutions, today announced that the Vice President of its ComplianceOnline Advisory Services, Keri Dawson, had been invited to speak as a panelist at the 2011 Enterprise Risk Management Conference, organized by The Conference Board, a global, not-for-profit, independent business membership and research association working in the public interest. The conference was held on October 12th-13th, 2011 in Chicago, Illinois.
In light of recent global events, business leaders have directed their focus on how to better understand and control the internal and external risks that confront their organizations. The challenge lies in integrating risk processes across organizational silos, and gaining timely risk data to support strategic decision making. Without a centralized and integrated view of enterprise risks, organizations will find it difficult to mitigate these risks proactively, or transform them into opportunities.
To help organizations learn how to effectively manage risks, the Enterprise Risk Management conference will provide best practices, tools and strategies from leading industry experts. Risk executives and Enterprise Risk Management (ERM) professionals will gain insights on driving value from ERM, articulating their risk appetite, assessing, monitoring and reporting risk practices, and other topical ERM concerns.
MetricStream’s Keri Dawson will be speaking in a panel discussion on ‘Leveraging Technology to add ERM Value.’ As Vice President of ComplianceOnline Advisory Services at MetricStream, Keri Dawson is responsible for leading the integration and continued growth of MetricStream’s cloud-based content and consulting services, with a focus on driving MetricStream’s next generation content and service portfolios across the ComplianceOnline business unit. Prior to joining MetricStream in early 2011, Ms. Dawson was a Director with KPMG and has over fifteen years of consulting experience in audit, risk, controls, and compliance.
Along with Ms. Dawson, MetricStream is proud to be part of this important forum, and hopes to play a critical role in collaboratively shaping the ERM space with other thought leaders at the conference.
