March 14, 2016 | New York, NY: MetricStream, the market leader in Governance, Risk, and Compliance (GRC) Apps, will participate at the 18th Annual OpRisk North America conference taking place on March 14-16, 2016 in New York. Brenda Boultwood, Senior Vice President of Industry Solutions at MetricStream, will moderate a panel discussion on March 15, 2016 titled, “New Operational Risk Practices in the Current Regulatory Environment.”

The 18th annual OpRisk North America 2016 Conference, hosted by Operational Risk magazine, is the industry's leading conference gathering over 350 senior operational risk directors and regulators from across the globe. Event sessions will address topics spanning the latest regulatory updates, guidance and practical applications; operational risk management frameworks and self-assessments; cyber risk and prevention; coordination of ORM, IT Risk and data governance; and KRIs.

Today’s current risk and regulatory landscape has forced banking and financial institutions to reexamine their existing strategies in order to successfully mitigate and manage risk. Operational Risk (OpRisk) has become an integral part of business processes, products, and systems, and banking and financial institutions must ensure they have a robust risk management program in place to monitor and mitigate operational risks stemming from both the internal as well as the external environment.

Participants at this conference will gain a comprehensive understanding of the most top of mind issues facing the financial services industry. During the event, MetricStream will also demonstrate its Operational Risk Management (ORM) App, which helps organizations adopt a more simple, streamlined, and systematic approach to document and assess operational risks, define controls, manage audits, and implement recommendations and remediation plans. Equipped with graphical charts that provide real-time information globally, MetricStream’s OpRisk Management App helps track process ownership, assessment plans, and remediation status.

Brenda Boultwood, Senior Vice President of Industry Solutions, will represent MetricStream at the conference and moderate a panel discussion titled, “New Operational Risk Practices in the Current Regulatory Environment.” Boultwood’s responsibilities at MetricStream include managing a portfolio of key industry verticals, including Energy and Utilities, Federal Agencies, and strategic Banking and Financial Services customers. She also currently serves on the Board of the Committee of Chief Risk Officers (CCRO).

Other notable speakers at this event include Mark D'Arcy, SVP and Global Head of Operational Risk, Enterprise Risk Management at StateStreet Corporation; Sean Egan, Founding Partner and Managing Director at Eagan Jones; Deborah Hrvatin, ‎Managing Director and Head of Operational Risk Management Americas at Deutsche Bank; Beth Rudofker, Head of Enterprise and Operational Risk at GE Capital and Steve Stone, Managing Director and Head of Wholesale Banking Operational Risk at Wells Fargo.
