Over 30 GRC experts and industry luminaries, including GRC pundit and analyst, Michael Rasmussen, will be speaking at the event and sharing real-world GRC perspectives, industry trends, and actionable insights. For attendees, this is a unique opportunity to interact and network with thought leaders and industry professionals from leading organizations across the Middle East and Africa.

“Following the success of the MetricStream GRC Summit 2013 in Las Vegas, we are excited to announce our upcoming event in the Middle East,” said Shellye Archambeau, CEO of MetricStream. She continued, “Companies in the Middle East and Africa have witnessed rapid growth over the last few decades, particularly in industries such as Energy, Oil, and Manufacturing. Sustaining this growth amidst global market volatilities, as well as improving risk awareness, and strengthening compliance with local and global regulations are critical to success. We look forward to discussing, analyzing, debating, and finding solutions to the various challenges and opportunities at hand at our upcoming MetricStream GRC Summit Middle East 2013.”

Both private and government-owned entities in the Middle East and Africa are increasing their focus on ways to improve their GRC maturity and sustainability. There is a growing need to formalize risk and controls processes, automate and streamline GRC workflows, and ensure a consolidated and real-time view of risk across the enterprise. Companies are quickly realizing how measures like these can help them thrive in today’s global marketplace, and effectively balance their risks and opportunities.

Event Co-host and MetricStream partner in the Middle East, Zener IT Solutions & Systems’ Division Manager, Ramessh Aidaasanii says, “We are very excited about being a part of the first GRC Summit in the Middle East. Over the last few years, we have seen a lot of interest around GRC in the region. This event will bring together the GRC community and will allow attendees to share knowledge and best practices with subject experts from across industries. The MetricStream GRC Summit Middle East provides a collaborative platform to discuss trends, innovation, and end-user requirements, and it is my pleasure to call upon professionals working in this area to join us in making this event a success.”

Over the last few years, MetricStream has witnessed increased adoption of its GRC solutions in the Middle East and Africa. The company has a strong presence in the region, and customers across multiple industries including Oil and Gas, Energy, Manufacturing, Financial Services, and Hospitality.
