September 15, 2010 | Palo Alto, California: MetricStream Inc., the market leader in enterprise-wide Governance, Risk and Compliance (GRC) management solutions, today announced its participation in the Information Security and Risk ManagementConference which will be held in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA on September 13-15, 2010.

The event is organized by the Information Systems Audit and Control Association (ISACA), a global provider of knowledge, certifications, community, advocacy and education on information systems assurance and security, enterprise governance and management of IT, IT-related risks and compliance. The three-day event will focus on various emerging topics in information security and risk management with the spotlight being on compliance, security and risk management for cloud computing and virtualized applications.

As businesses become more reliant on IT, they are forced to deal with a wide array of risks including hacking, cybercrime and cyber-espionage. Compounding the challenge is the fast-fading network perimeter which limits the control that organizations have over data security. In addition, they have to establish strategies, plans and controls for compliance with the growing number of IT security regulations. The ISACA conference will help IT professionals define these various challenges and risks, and highlight strategies to protect valuable assets.

MetricStream will participate in the three-day event and showcase its market-leading IT-GRC framework.
