March 05, 2015 | Palo Alto, California: MetricStream, the market leader in Governance, Risk, and Compliance (GRC) Apps, will organize and host a GRC Journey Roundtable in Chicago. The event will take place at the JW Marriott on March 19th, 2015 from 8:30am - 5:00pm. French Caldwell, Chief Evangelist - GRC at MetricStream will deliver the opening remarks on the topic ‘State of GRC’ at this event. Mr. Caldwell, a foremost thought leader in IT, has shaped the Governance, Risk, & Compliance (GRC) market. Mr. Caldwell is a trusted advisor to companies across industries on their approach, challenges, and solutions to governance, risk and compliance.

Businesses today face growing complexity across their operations, in large part due to new regulations and compliance mandates, new technologies, the mounting importance of corporate culture, and global parter and supply chain ecosystems. All of these factors require that organizations step up their GRC strategies.

To overcome the challenges of today and tomorrow, organizations around the world have embarked on a GRC journey. With a strong GRC foundation and the right GRC tools, technologies, and processes, organizations are able to expand their GRC programs across siloes, integrate multiple initiatives, eliminate redundancies, deliver risk intelligence, and ultimately, enhance business performance. Getting the GRC strategy right depends on the organization’s business objectives, long-term vision, and most importantly, its people who span key functions and roles across IT, audit, compliance, quality, risk management, and more.

This roundtable will feature a Customer Case Study presentation delivered by Tom Harper, Executive Vice President and General Auditor at Federal Home Loan Bank (FHLB) of Chicago. Mr. Harper will discuss the business challenges faced by FHLB Chicago, strategies to overcome these challenges, the enabling role of technology, best practices, and lessons learned.

During the event, participants will have the opportunity to attend a session “GRC Journey Overview” which will be led by GRC Journey Specialist, Yo Delmar, Vice President of GRC Solutions at MetricStream. Ms. Delmar has over 30 years of experience in Information Technology and Management, with a focus on helping customers embark on, and successfully carry forward in their Governance, Risk and Compliance journey.

In addition, this event will offer attendees several thought-provoking sessions on GRC Program Strategy, GRC Program Design, and GRC Program Roadmap.

Participants at this roundtable will have the unique opportunity to meet, interact, and share their experiences and insights on the latest trends and best practices in GRC with fellow MetricStream customers, colleagues, and their peers in the Industry.
