GRC at its Inflection Point: How Risk, Compliance and Internal Audit Will Change Business in 2009

Those responsible for risk management, compliance and internal audit are being asked to take on greater leadership roles to help their companies weather deep economic challenges. As organizations consider new techniques to succeed in managing risks, compliance and controls, what role can integrated Governance, Risk and Compliance (GRC) play in meeting the evolving needs of global corporations and the rising expectations of investors, regulators and the board? How can companies adopt a more inclusive approach to audit, risk management and regulatory compliance that extends beyond the traditional focus on controls and guides corporate strategy and decision-making?

Join Forrester Research Analyst, Chris McClean, to discuss key imperatives that have brought GRC to its inflection point:

  • Creating a GRC program that focuses on business value
  • Linking GRC performance metrics to strategic goals
  • Managing increasing scrutiny and oversight of business practices
  • Supporting the role of internal audit
  • Reducing GRC cost and complexity
