September 26, 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) Canada National Conference in Winnipeg, Manitoba from September 29 - October 2, 2013. The world-class event will focus on enhancing internal audit skills, proactively combating cyber security threats, and adopting practical techniques for fraud management. The event will also highlight tactics that can be utilized for comprehensive internal assessments, using the internal audit capability model.

Over the last few years, compliance, audits, and risk management have become key business priorities. Management teams and boards of directors are increasingly expecting internal auditors and Chief Audit Executives (CAEs) to play a strategic role in strengthening organizational controls, and enhancing risk management. Meanwhile, organizations are expected to ensure due diligence across their employees, suppliers, and vendors to prevent costly misconduct and fraud incidences. However, in order for these anti-fraud programs to be effective, they need to proactively track business expansion, monitor employee expenses, and identify questionable investment opportunities.

Business survival in today’s economic climate is also dependent on cyber security, especially given several recent high-profile cyber attacks. Organizations can no longer put the responsibility of managing cyberthreats solely in the hands of the technology team. These threats are enterprise risk management issues that can have a devastating impact on an organization’s business objectives, and should be managed as such.

MetricStream’s best-in-class solutions for audit, risk, and compliance enable organizations to overcome business challenges effectively. The solutions provide an integrated and flexible framework to simplify the identification and analysis of risks across the enterprise, helping to streamline the entire fraud and audit management lifecycle. They also feature built-in advanced capabilities such as remediation workflows, time tracking, email-based notifications and alerts, risk assessment methodologies, offline functionalities for conducting internal audits at remote field sites, and powerful dashboards.
