September 05, 2013 | London, United Kingdom: MetricStream, the market leader in enterprise-wide Governance, Risk and Compliance (GRC) solutions, will host a roundtable on Risk and IT Security Management in Frankfurt on  September 10, 2013. Top professionals will convene to discuss the pressing need for companies to bring security, IT, operational and financial risk management on a common platform. They will also provide valuable insights on how companies can leverage analytics and metrics to deal with the evolving threat landscape.

Organizations are witnessing several developments over the past few years such as the rise of a digital universe, innovation and its resultant risk profiles, increasing adoption of cloud, and growing popularity of orchestrator model in the Information technology (IT) and operational technology (OT) fields. The latest technologies are giving rise to new risks, as a result of which the disconnect between IT, security, and the business is also fast growing. With regulatory complexity and pressures growing, it is imperative for organizations to improve their control over their material risks.

Compounding this need are customers and suppliers who demand proactive identification, management, and control of risks. It is hence imperative for organizations to develop a common language and discussion framework to understand risk appetites and scenarios, and make strategic decisions. Organizations also need to leverage security analytics and metrics to give the management the risk intelligence they need to improve business performance and operate efficiently in the extended risk landscape.

Noted speakers at the event include Piyush Pant, VP of Strategic Markets, MetricStream, Frank Innerhofer, Professor - University of Innsbruck, and Christophe Lesieur, Global Practice Lead - GRC, CSC.

The roundtable will comprise two panel sessions. The session on Integrated Approach to Risk Management will highlight the need for organizations to demonstrate control over material risks to safeguard vital assets, support strategic business objectives, and ensure smooth flow of critical processes. The second session on Information Security Risk Management will underscore the importance of security analytics and metrics to gain risk intelligence, which can drive business performance.
