October 11, 2012 | Palo Alto, California: With 90 sessions and over 130 speakers, this year’s Annual Compliance and Ethics Institute aims to equip ethics and compliance professionals across the globe with strategies and best practices to improve their compliance program in their rapidly growing and evolving profession. The event will be organized by the Society of Corporate Compliance and Ethics (SCCE) and will be conducted on October 14-17, 2012 in Las Vegas, Nevada. Leading enterprise-wide Governance, Risk, and Compliance (GRC) solutions provider, MetricStream, will be showcasing its market-leading corporate governance solution at the event. MetricStream’s Corporate Governance Solution has helped compliance and ethics officers to systematize and automate end-to-end compliance workflows for all policies related to corporate compliance and business ethics.

With emerging ethics and compliance challenges affecting the performance and reputation of organizations, the role of Chief Ethics and Compliance Officers (CECOs) have been given a lot of emphasis. With the pressure mounting and the recent issues revolving around social media, third-party transactions, bribery and FCPA, and the Dodd-Frank Act that they are trying to tackle, CECOs are exploring practical applications, emerging trends, and state-of-the-art techniques to implement a sustainable and robust corporate ethics and compliance program.  During the four-day event, CECOs will learn from an impressive panel from the ethics and compliance community about best practices and strategies in developing a corporate compliance and ethics program that will address potential corporate regulatory challenges, conduct effective internal audits, and build an enterprise-wide culture centered on sound compliance and ethics practices.

Built on a centralized GRC platform, the MetricStream’s Corporate Governance Solution provides an integrated approach for managing the complete spectrum of regulatory mandates such as the Dodd-Frank Act, SOX and FCPA, as well as corporate requirements such as HR policies and procedures, privacy policies and IT security norms. The solution streamlines critical corporate governance principles on ethics, codes of conduct, compensation, and financial policies, implements ethical practices and improves communication within the organization.

Powerful tools such as balanced scorecards and risk heat maps monitor and document compliance through periodic audits, surveys, and self-assessments performance. The solution also enables organizations to continually audit their internal controls and communication processes and helps them identify risks, validate compliance with corporate business ethics policies, and remedy gaps and deficiencies in real-time.
