March 26, 2012 | Palo Alto, California: MetricStream, the market leader in enterprise-wide Governance, Risk and Compliance (GRC) solutions, today announced that Susan Palm, VP - Industry Solutions and Tom Harper, SVP and General Auditor at FHLB-Chicago have been invited to speak at the Annual Seminar of the Institute of Internal Auditors (IIA), Chicago. The seminar will be held on March 26, 2012 in Rosemont, Illinois.

With ever increasing regulatory mandates, compliance officers are struggling to find effective ways to manage compliance, and monitor regulatory changes. A lack of collaboration and information sharing between compliance, legal, IT and business groups within the enterprise only add to these complexities. During the IIA Chicago seminar, Ms. Palm and Mr. Harper will focus on how to best resolve these issues in their talk - “Regulatory Intelligence: How Compliance Officers can Deal with the Barrage of Compliance Requirements.” They will share practical strategies for building a collaborative, efficient and effective compliance program to mitigate risks and achieve business goals.

MetricStream’s Compliance Management solution is built on a centralized GRC platform that provides an integrated approach for managing the complete spectrum of regulatory mandates, as well as corporate requirements such as HR policies and procedures, privacy policies and IT security norms. The solution streamlines and automates end-to-end compliance workflows - right from policy creation and management, to control design and assessments, to survey management, periodic audits, issue investigation and remediation, and communication.

Using the solution, companies can accelerate the creation, development and communication of compliance policies and procedures, efficiently map them to regulatory requirements, and closely track policy gaps and exceptions. Powerful dashboards and reports provide real-time insights into control management processes and metrics, enabling managers to make quick, proactive and informed strategic decisions.
