February 21, 2011 | Palo Alto, California: MetricStream Inc., the market leader in enterprise-wide Governance, Risk and Compliance (GRC) solutions, today announced its participation at the Asia-Pacific Computer Audit, Control and Security (CACS) conference, organized by the Information Systems Audit and Control Association (ISACA). The event will be held on 21-22 February, 2011 in Dubai, and will provide an opportunity for IT-GRC professionals to network with experts and gain important insights on GRC issues such as governance concerns for ERP, wireless network security and the relevance of IT audits.

At the event, MetricStream will be conducting a workshop to discuss common GRC and IT-GRC challenges, as well as strategies and tools to overcome these challenges. Professionals involved in IT audits and information security risk and compliance processes will learn how to build a robust and resilient IT-GRC framework that improves profitability and brand value. The workshop will be held at 6.30 pm on Monday, 21 February, 2011.

As information technology evolves at a tremendous rate, the associated risks are also increasing. Trends such as cloud computing and virtualization have given rise to new security concerns that directly impact business profitability. Organizations have to closely track and mitigate risks such as cyber-theft, hacking, virus attacks and IT fraud - particularly in the face of a fast fading network perimeter and increasing global expansion of businesses. At the same time, they have to ensure compliance with a host of complex compliance regulations and frameworks ranging from FISMA, to NIST, to COBIT to ISO 27002.

To help organizations manage the demands and challenges of GRC more effectively, ISACA’s Asia-Pacific CACS conference will provide practical GRC insights, resources and tools. Participating in the event, as an exhibitor and workshop host, is MetricStream. The company will be showcasing its market-leading IT-GRC solutions that have helped leading organizations across industries and countries to safeguard information security and manage GRC challenges with ease and confidence.
