The recent financial breakdown and the growing demand for compliance and regulatory requirements necessitates that the executive management team gain a better understanding of how existing and emerging risks are being assessed and managed within the organization. Protecting the interests of investors and stakeholders, while ensuring sustained performance are absolutely essential to establishing sound corporate governance. Steering business through today’s complex maze of laws and regulations requires a forward-looking regulatory and corporate compliance management strategy. The need of the hour is a more sophisticated, thoughtfully-planned and well-executed corporate governance, risk management and compliance progam that can help identify, evaluate, monitor and manage risk. 

During the two-day event, Ms. Archambeau and Mr. Kapoor will discuss the significance of risk and compliance management in driving business performance, as well as articulate the linkages between risk, reputation, innovation, and performance. Participants will gain insights into the top regulatory and compliance issues in today’s global business environment, and will come away with key learnings and best approaches.

MetricStream solutions, which have won accolades as ‘Top ranked GRC offering - 2014,’ are designed to enhance control and visibility into risk and compliance, in order to help organizations reduce the cost of compliance, build their brand and reputation, and ultimately thrive on risk.
