February 28, 2012 | Palo Alto, California: MetricStream, the market leader in Enterprise Governance, Risk and Compliance (GRC) solutions, announced today that internal audit veteran, Dan Swanson, will join Supradeep Appikonda, Director of GRC Solutions, MetricStream, in a webinar titled 'Auditor's Role in Adding Organizational Value' to discuss how internal auditors can step up to challenges and implement the most appropriate audit management processes in their organizations.

About this webinar: 

Heightened nature of economic disasters caused by regulatory lapses in organizations has compelled organizations to re-evaluate their internal audit functions and systems. Global organizations are looking at implementing a well-structured and transparent audit management program to help them gain visibility into their risk and compliance status in order to appropriately mitigate the risks. Internal auditors now have wider responsibilities in helping organizations prioritize their risks and manage them effectively while also providing critical advice to the management to alleviate risks.

The webinar will help internal auditors to:

  • Understand and manage audit challenges confronted by different business units of their organizations
  • Develop an audit plan for the organization that focuses on key organizational risks
  • Become a trusted strategic advisor to top management
  • Increase the strategic value of internal audits by leveraging technology
