March 18, 2014 | Abu Dhabi, UAE: MetricStream, a market leader in enterprise-wide Governance, Risk, and Compliance (GRC) solutions participated in the 15th Annual Regional Audit Conference held in Dubai World Trade Centre, UAE, from March 16-17, 2014.  Anurag Jain, Senior Director - Partner Group spoke on ‘The role of audit as the last line of defence for Risk Accountability.’

New and emerging risks pose a major threat to the world of business. Increasing regulatory measures and heightened anxiety following the 2008 financial crisis has driven several enterprises to embrace enhanced risk management solutions. Such solutions enable identification, analysis and mitigation of potential risk factors that impact the core aspect of a business. As risks may crop up at any stage of a product’s lifecycle, companies will be benefited if they adopt a risk management strategy that follows a holistic approach toward risk mitigation.

The UAE Internal Audit Association’s regional conference is one of the best training events in the Middle East that enabled participants gain insights into key issues and risks confounding internal auditing. The two-day event hosted several dedicated tracks on risk and strategy, innovation, fraud, technology, compliance and emerging issues and future industry trends.
