September 19, 2013 | Palo Alto, California: MetricStream, the market leader in enterprise-wide Governance, Risk, and Compliance (GRC) solutions, will participate at the Ethics and Compliance Officer Association’s (ECOA) 21st Annual Ethics and Compliance Conference in Chicago, Illinois from September 25 - 27, 2013. Distinguished practitioners and experts will convene at this multi-industry gathering to address some of the most critical issues facing ethics and compliance practitioners today. MetricStream will also present its comprehensive legal and compliance management solutions during the three day event.

As organizations grow larger and more globalized, it becomes increasingly difficult to meet various geographical ethics and compliance standards, especially in the face of competitive pressures and rigorous business objectives. However, in light of increased regulatory scrutiny and recent corporate scandals, it is vital that organizations establish and drive forward a sound compliance and ethics program across their various business lines. An effective risk-based compliance and ethics program can foster an enterprise-wide culture of compliance, facilitate collaboration across multiple stakeholders, and provide the flexibility to adapt to local and global regulatory requirements. It also enhances an organization’s reputation in the eyes of key stakeholders, customers, and prospects.

MetricStream’s Ethics and Compliance solutions provide a holistic and proactive approach to identifying legal risks and implementing controls to mitigate such risks by facilitating adherence to various regulations such as Anti-money Laundering (AML) and the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA), as well as guidelines on consumer privacy, and company policies on ethics. Powerful tools such as risk heat maps, balanced scorecards and graphical dashboards provide organizations a unified, real-time view of ongoing legal and compliance efforts across departments, business units and geographies. By adopting an integrated approach to ethics and compliance management, the solutions enable organizations to share information more effectively, derive meaningful risk and compliance insights, and reduce redundancies and duplication of efforts.

At the three day meet, the attendees will exchange ideas and knowledge on:

  • Aligning communications and training with business priorities and compliance risks
  • Mentoring suppliers through an efficient ethics program
  • Leveraging technology to implement effective programs and foster an organizational culture of integrity and compliance
