October 30, 2013 | Palo Alto, California: MetricStream, the market leader in Enterprise Governance, Risk, and Compliance (GRC) solutions will showcase its sophisticated  risk management, internal audit, compliance, and IT GRC solutions at The Institute of Internal Auditor’s (IIA) 2013 Midwestern Regional Conference from November 3-6, 2013 in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Distinguished Governance, Risk, Compliance, and Audit executives will convene at the conference to exchange ideas and discuss top trends, emerging issues, and best practices. The conference will also provide attendees with exclusive insight on topics such as leadership, fraud, regulation, and the role of technology in overcoming some of today’s toughest challenges.

Across industries and geographies, organizations are focusing their attention on the key role of internal audit amidst today’s increasing economic uncertainty and complex risk landscape. With the growing footprint of the business, and the increasing scope of business operations around the world, internal auditors are being called upon to manage and mitigate risk, eliminate complexities and redundancies, monitor regulatory compliance, avoid fraud, and increase stakeholder value. To meet rising expectations, internal auditors must move beyond the more traditional checklist and controls-based approach to a more strategic, risk-based audit approach.

MetricStream’s solutions for risk management, internal audit, compliance, and IT GRC enable companies to implement a formal framework to rigorously measure, mitigate, and monitor risks, and adopt a more integrated and collaborative approach to manage compliance requirements. Organizations can also leverage this framework to document and assess risks, define controls, manage audits, identify issues, and implement remediation plans. The solutions also come with advanced tools such as risk heat maps, risk calculators, extensive dashboards, a centralized data repository, an efficient issue management system for capturing and tracking IT issues, advanced data analytics tools, embedded reports, and capabilities around email notifications and reminders.

Throughout the four day event, attendees will have the opportunity to network and interact with MetricStream executives to learn more about how leading organizations are using technology to successfully address today’s risk and compliance challenges, and align these critical efforts with broader business strategies in order to drive world class business performance.
