MetricStream’s GRC solutions have enabled organizations across industries to streamline multiple GRC processes, identify and mitigate risks across the enterprise, and improve compliance

October 12, 2012 | Palo Alto, California: The 2012 Gartner Symposium IT XPO that will be held in October 21- 25, 2012 in Florida is said to be one of the world’s most important gathering of Chief Information Officers and senior IT executives. Based on the theme, “Focus,Connect,Lead”, this learning and interactive platform aims to deepen the understanding of key emerging IT concepts, practical strategies to derive value from it, and the governance practices to address the new age IT risks and threats. MetricStream, the market leader in enterprise-wide Governance, Risk, and Compliance (GRC) Solutions will be among the best-of-breed security and compliance solution providers who will be showcasing its GRC solutions at the event.

The upsurge in the use of mobiles, social media, and cloud both within and outside the enterprise, has had a transformational impact on the IT ecosystem. The large amounts of information accessed and utilized while being beneficial for organizations have also ushered in risks and threats that have proved serious for many organizations.  And with newer security loopholes created with the advancement of technology, IT executives are revamping their IT security infrastructure to protect their organizations from security breaches, leakage of intellectual property, and thus prevent brand damage. What IT decision-makers need to look at is how they can leverage the capabilities of technology, establish best practices that are capable of mitigating unforeseen risk scenarios while at the same time take full advantage of technology in achieving business objectives.
