September 26, 2013 | Palo Alto, California: MetricStream, the market leader in enterprise-wide Governance, Risk, and Compliance (GRC) solutions will exhibit its industry leading IT GRC and BCM solutions at the Information Systems Audit and Control Association (ISACA) Fall Conference in San Francisco from September 30th - October 2nd, 2013. Distinguished professionals from the information technology, audit, security, governance, risk, and compliance industry will convene to discuss ways to enhance their core competencies. The event will also shed light on professional techniques and strategies that organizations can adopt for efficient regulatory compliance.

Today, IT has become the backbone for business operations in organizations. The number and types of transactions that occur over IT systems are growing, exposing organizations to a wide array of risks. Stringent security processes, compliance with regulations, frequent audits, and sound risk management programs have become vital in analyzing and mitigating risks that threaten the function of critical IT assets. Another top priority is information privacy and business continuity management, which is important in upholding customer trust, reputation, and revenue.

 IT auditing, security, governance, risk, and compliance are inherently complex given the multiple of internal and external stakeholders involved in these activities. Most organizations struggle to gain complete visibility into their IT environment which makes the task of measuring and managing IT risk, maintaining a single system of audit record, ensuring regulatory compliance, and protecting critical IT assets extremely cumbersome. Moreover, these functions are usually siloed, leading  to duplicative efforts, and disparate IT risk, audit, and compliance processes.

MetricStream’s IT GRC solution, which includes audit, risk, and security solutions, helps organizations effectively manage IT risks and meet IT regulatory requirements by streamlining the entire GRC process. The solution enables organizations to establish a formal framework to proactively measure, monitor and mitigate IT risk, and reduce the cost of compliance with various regulations spanning data retention, privacy, confidential information, and financial accountability. MetricStream’s BCM solution also enables organizations to manage business continuity and support seamless recovery from natural and man-made disasters. The solution provides an integrated and flexible framework for embedding Business Continuity Planning (BCP) in the risk management model, automating the entire BCP lifecycle.
