June 7, 2010 | Palo Alto, California: MetricStream Inc., the market leader in Enterprise-wide Governance, Risk and Compliance (GRC) Solutions, today announced that it is participating in the Institute of Internal Auditors (IIA) International Conference 2010 being held at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta from June 6-9. The conference will feature Gaurav Kapoor, CFO and General Manager at MetricStream, and John Nolan from UBS Investment Bank Audit as presenters on the topic "Building a Risk-based Audit Inventory in a Global Financial Services Institution".

For global corporations, a key challenge today is defining and implementing a new generation audit inventory and risk assessmentplatform. This session will provide information on how UBS approached the task and implemented an audit inventory which is fully aligned with and indeed drives the risk based audit approach. The session also provides an overview of how UBS used the software upgrade to leverage the possibilities offered by an integrated audit system platform that supports each step in the audit process. Mr. Nolan and Mr Kapoor will address critical questions such as:

  • What does risk based audit approach actually mean?
  • How can an audit inventory help drive a risk based audit approach?
  • What are the key challenges when implementing a new IT platform for Internal Audit?

Other recognized speakers at the conference include The Economist's US Economics Editor Zanny Minton-Beddoes and The Home Depot's Chief Financial Officer and Executive Vice President of Corporate Services Carol B. Tomé. Guaranteed to be the year's largest gathering of internal auditing practitioners, the 2010 International Conference will focus on "Auditing Through Leadership (ATL)."
