Leading players in the retail and consumer goods industry are recognizing the importance of an integrated Governance, Risk, and Compliance (GRC) program. Organizations within the industry face a growing number of complex operational risks, IT risks, and reputational risks, amongst others. Additionally, a multitude of regulatory and compliance requirements such as the Fair Packaging and Labeling Act (FPLA), Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA), and the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act (CPSIA) compound the efforts required to ensure compliance. Today, there is increasing interconnectivity and overlap between risks and regulations, which affects various departments across the organization. Increasing incidences of corruption throughout the supply chain is also a critical area that organizations must proactively address.

An effective approach to managing various risks and regulations is through an integrated approach. This eliminates the duplication of audits and other assessments, which consume resources such as time and money, in turn leading to potential financial losses and business risks. An integrated approach to GRC provides greater visibility and control across the supply chain.

Join Keri Dawson, Vice President of ComplianceOnline Advisory Services at MetricStream, and Sonal Sinha, Associate Vice President of Industry Solutions at MetricStream during this webinar. Topics to be explored include:

  • Defining and managing the scope and objectives of a GRC program
  • Designing integrated compliance, risk, and audit programs that address multiple organizational requirements
  • Enforcing policies, managing anti-corruption and due-diligence programs, and creating a culture of compliance across the enterprise and supply chain
  • Adopting a risk-based approach to regulatory and corporate compliance requirements
  • Effectively managing and monitoring audits across the enterprise and supply chain
  • Leveraging relevant program metrics, indicators, and analytics to support decision-making at the management and board level
