Pervasive GRC is MetricStream’s vision for the future, enabling individuals, organizations, governments, and societies to:

  • Adapt to changing technology interaction paradigms such as mobility, social collaboration, and cloud services
  • Drive GRC adoption across the organization and extended enterprise with a focus on Generation-C users
  • Layer GRC within core business processes and functions, and push GRC to the point of action
  • Contextualize GRC to help support analysis and strategic decision-making
  • Leverage GRC intelligence to drive superior business performance

Commenting on the event, MetricStream Executive Chairman Gunjan Sinha said, “Business operations are increasingly global, interconnected, socially networked, mobile, and cloud-based. Along with bringing new efficiencies and value, this landscape also creates new risks that we are just beginning to understand. Balancing risk with opportunity requires organizations to establish a pervasive GRC culture at every level of the enterprise, in a way that supports decision-making processes. The MetricStream GRC Summit 2015 will address the top of mind GRC-related challenges and opportunities facing business leaders today. Through this event, individuals and organizations will benefit from world class GRC content and community in order to design a blueprint for their own journey towards Pervasive GRC, leveraging the best practices and strategies derived from the successful GRC journeys of other leading organizations and experts across the world.”
