Implementing an Efficient and Responsive Policy Maintenance Program

Best practices and strategies for establishing a policy maintenance framework that enables organizations to manage policies and drive efficiencies

Policies help shape a company’s corporate culture and provide guidelines for employees that support the overall organization and its objectives. Though organizations today have implemented policies to address a wide range of issues, many find it challenging to maintain and manage these policies. As a result, organizations have outdated policies or policies that need to be revised or re-aligned to reflect the current organizational goals. No matter the size of the organization, having a well-designed, fully integrated, and transparent policy maintenance program provides assurance that policies are understood and adhered to across the organization, while also allowing for continuous improvement of policies through monitoring, review, and audit processes.

The sixth installment of the Open Compliance and Ethics Group (OCEG) Policy Management webinar series will focus on “Policy Maintenance”, and will address key challenges that organizations face in maintaining and managing their policies. Vasant Balasubramanian, VP of Product Management at MetricStream will join other leading GRC thought leaders to share best practices and expertise on how organizations can effectively maintain policies and maximize the short and long-term benefits of implementing a well-defined system for policy maintenance. Other key points that will be discussed during this webinar include:

  • Establishing key steps in policy maintenance
  • Defining the pathways for receiving information
  • Determining meaningful metrics
  • Understanding the value of audit trails
