September 03, 2013 | Palo Alto, California: MetricStream, the market leader in enterprise-wide Governance, Risk, and Compliance (GRC) solutions, will participate in the Institute of Internal Auditors' (IIA's) 2013 Annual Conference and Leadership Forum being held in Singapore from September 4 - 6, 2013. MetricStream will showcase its advanced capabilities in audit management and GRC at the event.

Globalization, market volatilities, the economic slowdown, sophisticated fraud events, and regulatory pressures have introduced new complexities to the risk landscape. Internal auditors can no longer be relegated to just financial audits. The scope of their role has to be broadened to meet the more pressing needs of risk management, regulatory compliance, and business process optimization. They have to be more accountable to ensure that risk management processes provide the right level of assurance.

Internal auditors can gain the capability and efficiency to detect and prevent fraud, test internal controls, and control and mitigate risks with MetricStream's audit management and GRC solutions. These solutions can further be leveraged to achieve compliance with organizational policies, governmental regulations, and industry standards. The solutions streamline the internal audit lifecycle and enable organizations to manage internal audit-related activities, data, and processes in a single, comprehensive framework. Sophisticated solution features such as built-in remediation workflows, time tracking, email-based notifications and alerts, risk assessment methodologies and offline functionalities for conducting audits at remote field sites further enable organizations to undertake effective audits.

This three day conference will bring together decision-makers within various functions of GRC including internal audit, and offer valuable insights on tackling internal audit challenges, and better aligning internal audit and risk management efforts with an organization's overall business goals.
