September 12, 2014 | Palo Alto, California: MetricStream, the market leader in Governance, Risk, and Compliance (GRC) Management solutions, hosted a GRC Roundtable titled ‘Navigating your GRC Journey’ in Doha, Qatar on September 10, 2014. The event convened over 50 industry experts, chief executives and practitioners who attended illuminating event sessions, participated in exclusive networking opportunities, and shared valuable insights with their peers on the latest GRC trends, challenges and opportunities that are impacting organizations across industries throughout the Middle East, as they continue forward in their GRC journey. 

At the event, Dr. R Seetharaman, Group CEO of Doha Bank, delivered a keynote address, providing the audience with both global and regional insight into the criticality of proper governance and risk management measures, as well as the need for more visible GRC Programs. Citing examples of how weak practices have brought down major global organizations, he urged organizations to adopt GRC programs which are more collaborative and transparent, right from the board level down to every business function and employee. 

The roundtable also featured notable speakers from leading organizations in the Middle East. The CXO panel discussion addressed topics including the Boards’ expectations of GRC programs, how organizations can create a risk-aware culture, and how to define risk appetite. The second panel discussion focused on how organizations can empower internal GRC champions by gathering cross-functional support and gaining buy-in from GRC program skeptics. Participants gained an in-depth knowledge on topics spanning audit, risk, and compliance programs, best practices in planning their GRC journey, and how to overcome hurdles when implementing a GRC program.

The MetricStream GRC Roundtable in Doha is part of a series of roundtables hosted by MetricStream across the globe, and is the leading forum for risk, compliance, audit and governance professionals to network, and share challenges, learnings, and best practices.
