October 09, 2013 | Palo Alto, California: MetricStream, the market leader in enterprise-wide Governance, Risk, and Compliance (GRC) solutions will participate at the Institute of Internal Auditors’ (IIA) 2013 All Star Conference in New Orleans, Louisiana from October 14-16, 2013. Distinguished professionals will convene at the event to discuss the increased focus and role of internal audit. Industry thought leaders will explore ways to achieve enterprise-wide cost efficiencies, improve business performance, increase focus on the risks that matter, and manage talent in order to thrive in today’s competitive, volatile, and risky business environment.

Corporate fraud incidences, poorly defined and understood risk appetites, ineffective enterprise risk management strategies, and the increasing complexity of regulations have fundamentally changed the role of the internal auditor. From strengthening organizational controls, to enhancing risk management, the role of internal auditors must continue to evolve to meet the expanding needs of the business. Internal auditors are playing a critical role in leading their organizations to adopt a more proactive, collaborative, transparent, and sustainable audit approach that is more closely aligned with the organization’s strategic objectives and mission.

This event will offer attendees in-depth and comprehensive sessions on a variety of topics, including:

  • Internal audit and corporate governance
  • Risk appetite and strategy for change
  • The internal auditor’s role in emerging technology
  • Fraud: An enterprise level perspective
