July 17, 2014 | Palo Alto, California: MetricStream, a market leader in Governance, Risk, and Compliance (GRC) solutions, will host the 2014 Industry Audit & Risk Roundtable, to be held in Singapore on July 24th, 2014. Gaurav Kapoor, Chief Operating Officer at MetricStream will deliver the keynote address on ‘The GRC Journey: Setting Achievable Goals’ at this event. In addition, notable audit practitioners and consultants from leading organizations in the region will speak at this event. 

The rapid growth of Singapore’s economy has paved the way for a multitude of domestic and international business requirements, operations, and opportunities. This swift progression of the economy has also exposed various industries to new risks stemming from both internal and external events within an organization. 

The scope and magnitude of the auditor’s role in gauging industry risk continuously evolves due to changing business needs, evolving regulations, social media challenges, compliance mandates, and IT risks. Executive management teams expect the internal audit team to provide an independent assurance, and bolster their support and focus on audit related activities. The audit team must increasingly leverage data analytics techniques in their audit processes to identify blind spots in the enterprise that do not fall under any control. This can help them gain a better idea of the potential risks and offer greater visibility into those that may impact business goals and performance.

At this one-day event, Mr. Kapoor will deliver the keynote address on ‘The GRC Journey: Setting Achievable Goals’ and share his views on the key concerns associated with audits, emerging and potential threats and the best approaches for risk mitigation. The event will also feature prominent speakers including:

  • James Loh, Director, Consulting KPMG, Singapore
  • Abdul Hamid Bin Abdullah, Audit Director, Audit-General’s office
  • Martin Davies, Risk Framework Architect, Causal Capital Pte. Ltd
  • Gordon Song, Head of ERM & Internal Audit, Tiger Air
  • Melisa Aw Hong, CIA, CCSA, CFE, CA (Singapore)
  • Chris Ong FCA (England & Wales), CA (Singapore), CIA, MBA

MetricStream’s comprehensive Audit Management and Risk Management solutions provide a flexible framework that simplifies a wide array of audit and risk management related activities, facilitates the timely detection of issues and drives risk-intelligent decision-making.
