Webinar Coverage
The number of IT controls is exploding to unmanageable levels to meet various regulations, standards and frameworks companies need to comply with. By standardizing on a common set of IT controls that map to all the regulations and policy mandates that a company needs to comply with, IT organizations can reduce the cost and manage the complexity of IT compliance.

Key issues that will be covered in the webinar include:

  • Rationalizing IT controls for easy implementation, testing and monitoring
  • Automating IT-GRC processes for IT policies, risks, compliance and audits
  • Streamlining IT compliance - SOX, FFIEC, PCI, GLBA, HIPAA, CMS, NERC and NIST
