February 19, 2013 | Palo Alto, California: MetricStream, the market leader in enterprise-wide Governance, Risk, and Compliance (GRC) solutions, has recently announced its participation in the five-day RSA Conference 2013 which will be held in San Francisco from February 25 - March 1, 2013. MetricStream will showcase its market leading IT-GRC solution suite, including its applications for Risk Management, Compliance and Policy Management, Incident and Issue Management, Threat and Vulnerability Management, Vendor Governance, Audit Management, and Business Continuity Management (BCM).
The RSA Conference 2013 will convene leading experts from around the globe to discuss today's most critical challenges in information security. With emerging mobile and tablet infrastructure for accessing business information, there are new complex risks and threats to the business. The growing popularity of social media and cloud platforms invariably leads to a greater dependency on third party services, requiring more robust vendor risk management and information risk management programs and processes. Today, CISOs, CIOs, and IT executives have a sharpened focus on gathering and unifying real-time information security, IT, and compliance data from across the organization and utilizing advanced analytics to derive actionable risk intelligence.
At this year's RSA 2013 conference, MetricStream will showcase its unique and industry-recognized solution that integrates IT, Security, and Business data on a common GRC platform, which helps support and strengthen regulatory compliance and proactive risk management.
Additionally, MetricStream will exhibit its Business Continuity Management Solution which helps organizations manage business continuity and support seamless recovery from natural and man-made disasters. This solution provides an integrated and flexible framework for embedding Business Continuity Planning (BCP) in the risk management model, automating the BCP lifecycle from planning to implementation, management, and maintenance.
