August 2, 2010 | Palo Alto, California: MetricStream Inc., the market leader in Enterprise Governance, Risk and Compliance (GRC) solutions, announced today that Michael Rasmussen - Risk and Compliance Advisor, Corporate Integrity, will join Gaurav Kapoor - CFO and General Manager, MetricStream, for a webinar on the topic “Unlocking the Elusive Potential of a Unified GRC Program".

About the webinar
In the past, risk and compliance were managed in silos. But this approach no longer holds good in a globalized, interconnected and heavily regulated business environment. A risk and compliance program that is managed in silos only leads to redundancies, complexities and inefficiencies. Besides, it does not align effectively with overall business strategy.

Today, risk and compliance managers need to collaborate not only with each other but with heads of departments and business functions across processes and locations. Realizing this, many companies are opting for a collaborative framework that integrates GRC information and processes across the enterprise. Such a framework enables all policies, risks, controls, events, requirements and objectives to align and support each other as well as the broader business strategy. It also improves the agility, efficiency and effectiveness of risk and compliance programs.

This webinar will provide a high-level overview on:

  • How a unified framework can provide an integrated view of GRC information and processes across the enterprise
  • The benefits of a unified GRC program
  • The specific roles of GRC applications
  • Leveraging technology to establish an integrated GRC program
  • MetricStream’s market leading enterprise GRC platform that is currently being adopted by leading Fortune 500 organizations for managing GRC programs globally.
