May 20, 2013 | Palo Alto, California: MetricStream, the market leader in enterprise-wide Governance, Risk, and Compliance (GRC) solutions announced today that its Chief Operating Officer (COO), Gaurav Kapoor led a discussion on integrated GRC at the Internal Auditors’ Peer Group event held on May 15 and 16, 2013 in Palo Alto, California. In his discussion, Mr. Kapoor examined the various GRC tools and practices being used by different organizations, highlighting the benefits of an integrated and collaborative approach.

Organizations across industries and verticals are facing an increasing volume and complexity of risks across their people, processes and technologies. As business operations become more global and complex, organization-wide audit, governance, risk, and compliance processes and solutions need to both address the challenges posed by today’s rapidly changing business environment, as well as adapt to an evolving regulatory paradigm.

During this event, Gaurav Kapoor led a discussion entitled ‘Bringing Down the Walls’ which highlighted several important topics and questions that organizations need to ask themselves, such as:

  • The role that technology plays in enterprise wide governance, risk, and compliance (GRC) initiatives
  • How to leverage data analytics and business intelligence
  • The importance of continuous control monitoring
