March 24, 2010 | Palo Alto, California: MetricStream Inc., the market leader in enterprise-wide Governance, Risk, Compliance (GRC) solutions, today announced that it will be presenting at the IIA San Francisco & San Jose Chapters 2010 Spring Joint Conference on March 24, 2010.

The theme of the event is "2010: Ensuring Internal Audit Success in the New Decade" and internal audit executives for premier organizations such as Adobe, Union Bank and Silicon Valley Bank will discuss best practices and trends including IIA Internal Audit Standards, Effective Risk Assessment Techniques, Improvisational Leadership in Internal Audit, Audit Committee Communication and Relationships, Audit Analytics and Role of Internal Audit in Enterprise-wide Governance, Risk and Compliance (GRC).

MetricStream will address the auditors attending the conference on the topic "Upgrading Internal Audit Infrastructure" - a significant initiative being undertaking by audit groups at several corporations in response to the changing business environment, new risk scenarios, tighter regulatory regime and increasing demand for transparency by investors and board members. The internal audit function is moving beyond its traditional control-focused approach to a more progressive and forward looking one that delivers strategic business assurance and value to the organization. MetricStream's presentation will provide insights on how the shifting focus of internal audit towards corporate goals, business strategies and risk management processes can be effectively supported by an upgrade in the internal audit technology infrastructure.

Recognized throughout the industry for its Internal Audit Management solution, MetricStream has enabled several companies to migrate from their legacy systems, point applications and paper-based procedures to a web-based integrated audit and work paper management system that facilitates risk-based auditing. As a result, companies are able to streamline and strengthen the internal audit function enabling it to deliver more strategic value while lowering its costs of operation. In addition, MetricStream's Enterprise GRC Platform and solution suite allows customers to adopt an integrated GRC strategy for various disciplines such as policy management, regulatory compliance, risk management, financial controls and IT GRC.
