August 06, 2015 | Palo Alto, California: MetricStream, the market leader in Governance, Risk, and Compliance (GRC) Apps, participated at the Global Association of Risk Professionals (GARP) San Francisco Chapter event on July 23, 2015 at the University of San Francisco in San Francisco, California. The event convened risk management executives and banking and financial services professionals to discuss key trends and top-of-mind issues, as well as identify best practices for establishing an enterprise risk management framework that supports business objectives and better business performance.

Susan Palm, Vice President of GRC at MetricStream, served as the moderator for the event, which featured a panel on the topic ‘Emerging Issues in Risk Management: Big Data and Beyond’ with distinguished panelists including Rafael Garcia, Portfolio Manager at California Public Employees’ System (CalPERS); John Hallacy, Managing Director at Assured Guaranty, Ltd.; and Mary Colby, Managing Director and Head of the Municipal Fixed Income Research Group at Charles Schwab Investment Management Inc. The moderated panel discussion shed light on important areas, including macro-economic trends and their impacts on financial markets; increasingly stringent compliance requirements; how risks are impacting specific markets; the impact of a heightened risk environment on organizations; and predictions for the future of risk and compliance.

Enterprise risk management is a critical function, as organizations look to bolster their risk management framework and infrastructure to support more predictive and real-time risk management. In the face of emerging risks, evolving compliance requirements, mounting cyber-security threats, and macro-economic volatility, risk management executives are coming together as a community to share best practices on the risk management strategies and tools needed to optimize enterprise decision-making, performance and outcomes.
