The panel discussion will be followed by a case study presentation by Brenda Boultwood and Gaurav Kapoor, on ‘Using GRC to Gain Competitive Advantage’.

Talking about the GRC Roundtable, MetricStream COO, Gaurav Kapoor says, “Compliance and risk initiatives are often planned and managed in silos in energy companies. There is a need to redefine approaches in handling ERM, FERC, NERC and cyber security requirements. Companies need to leverage risk intelligence to move to the next stage of risk and compliance management which is better integrated with the overall business strategy. The MetricStream GRC Roundtable brings together the industry’s foremost risk and compliance leaders who will analyze the core issues and provide pragmatic insights and techniques for companies to adopt”.
