June 17, 2014 | Palo Alto, California: MetricStream, a market leader in Governance, Risk, and Compliance (GRC) Management solutions, participated and co-sponsored the Annual Auditors Society Regulatory Dinner organized by the Securities Industry and Financial Markets Association (SIFMA) in New York City on June 9, 2014. Several notable members from major regulatory bodies such as the CFTA, the SEC, FINRA and the Federal Reserve Bank of New York convened to share insights on their key priorities and key areas concern.

During the course of the dinner, regulators discussed the increased focus on ensuring the creation and execution of comprehensive risk governance frameworks and controls across company business and functional silos, spanning all types of risk. Regulators also emphasized the need to improve their validation and reliance on company internal audit results, given the increasingly strategic role internal audit functions play within companies

Financial institutions facing serious risks associated with liquidity, funding, regulatory changes, cybersecurity, customer data breaches, fluctuating markets, and volatile economic conditions. There is also increasing pressure from constantly changing regulations and updates to compliance mandates such as Basel III, Dodd-Frank Act, Solvency II, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) in addition to several other state and federal laws. In order to build an organization’s resilience towards existing and emerging risks, the internal audit team’s focus on risk management must take into account the need to be agile, responsive, and adaptable to change.
