June 10, 2014 | Palo Alto, California: MetricStream, a market leader in enterprise-wide Governance, Risk, and Compliance (GRC) solutions, will participate at the premier Security & Risk Management Summit hosted by Gartner. The conference will be held in National Harbor, MD from June 23-26, 2014. Gaurav Kapoor, Chief Operating Officer at MetricStream, will moderate a panel discussion on ‘GRC Journey: Converging Enterprise, IT and Security Risk’ featuring executives from Compassion International, Northern Trust, and Johnson & Johnson. Senior IT professionals from the Security, Risk and Business Continuity Management functions will convene at the event to exchange ideas on challenges and best practices to best manage and enhance core competencies. MetricStream will also showcase its IT GRC, Business Continuity Management (BCM) and Enterprise GRC Solutions at this event. 

As Information Technology (IT) resources become more closely integrated with every element of business operations, organizations also face intense scrutiny from regulatory bodies to curb risks associated with cyber security, cloud computing, data storage, security and customer information. Enterprises have to maintain strict adherence to existing as well as emerging compliance obligations. To guarantee sustainable and scalable business growth, and develop a stronger understanding of risk, CIO’s and IT security officers have to ensure that their existing IT GRC methodologies are in line with business goals, which are aligned with relevant regulations and compliance initiatives. Continuous risk monitoring, reporting, analysis of Key Risk Indicators (KRIs), and IT GRC performance across various departments in an organization are the key elements to determine where there are gaps, and to develop the appropriate remediation measures. 

During this four-day event, Mr. Kapoor will talk about successful GRC Journeys that have helped accelerate the convergence of enterprise, IT and Security risks, while improving business performance, by managing GRC as a program involving people, processes and technology. Mr. Kapoor will moderate a panel featuring insight from leading professionals including Rhett Saunders, Technology Governance at Compassion International, Isabel Smith, Director Corporate Internal Audit at Johnson & Johnson, and Kevin A. Novak, Senior Vice President, CISO and Technology Risk Manager - Corporate Risk Management at Northern Trust Bank. 

MetricStream’s holistic IT GRC suite enables businesses to embed a proactive threat-resilient framework within their organization. It also acts as a centralized repository to facilitate better communication, collaboration, and transparency which can result in stronger risk management and mitigation. MetricStream solutions, which won accolades as ‘Top ranked GRC offering - 2014,’ are designed to assist in the timely detection of risks, impact assessments, monitoring and reporting through robust dashboards, which help executives make decisions that drive business performance.
