MetricStream, Inc., the market leader in Enterprise Governance, Risk, Compliance (GRC) and Quality Management solutions, announced today that Connie Valencia - CIA, CCSA – Principal, Elevate Consulting will join Prashanth Shetty - Vice-President of GRC Solutions, MetricStream, in a webinar on Internal audit management.

About the webinar
The dramatic increase in the workload of internal audit related to SOX is typically not supported by a proportionate rise in resources. This results in critical activities like operational and system audits, fraud investigations and special audit work taking a back seat to the more pressing needs of regulatory compliance. This shift toward SOX and general compliance related duties demands rebalancing and a seamless integration of SOX and Operational Audits as meeting the requirements of the law is, obviously, important, but not to the detriment of other responsibilities of auditors.

This webinar will help attendees learn how to:

* Integrate SOX controls tests into operational audits
* Utilize expertise in business process analysis and risk management
* Leverage financial, compliance and IT controls for exploring business operations
* Ensure that your audit department provides true value addition instead of being a 'SOX Shop'
* Use techniques and tools for optimizing the role of internal audit in a compliance-centric era
