March 10, 2011 | Palo Alto, California: MetricStream Inc., the market leader in Enterprise Governance, Risk and Compliance (GRC) solutions, announced today that its Chief Operating Officer (COO), Gaurav Kapoor, has been invited to a webinar panel discussion on Enterprise Risk Management (ERM). Hosted by Operational Risk & Regulation in association with MetricStream, the webinar will be held on Thursday, 10 March, 2011. It will centre on the theme - ‘Thinking Holistically - The Benefits of Enterprise Risk Management.’

As part of its financial regulatory reform agenda, the US signed into law the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act in July 2010. It requires financial institutions to cope with several new regulatory requirements, not the least of which is assessing and monitoring risks across the enterprise. In response, financial institutions are striving to establish a successful Enterprise Risk Management program. However, the task becomes difficult when considering the plethora of risks and compliance regulations confronting financial institutions today. Making matters more challenging is the complexity of managing risks across global operations, units, departments and branches.

The webinar will help address some of the above challenges by examining best practices and pitfalls to avoid when establishing an Enterprise Risk Management program. The speakers at the webinar will provide perspectives on various concerns such as the drivers for ERM in financial institutions, the benefits versus the costs of ERM, and ERM failures and success stories.

Joining the panel of experts at the webinar is Gaurav Kapoor. As the COO of MetricStream, Gaurav has been instrumental in moulding the company into a global leader in GRC solutions. Today, MetricStream Solutions are used by some of the largest and most well-known global financial institutions including, FHLB Chicago, FHLBank Atlanta, Central Bank of Oman and Union Bank of Switzerland.
