MetricStream to Host a Webinar on ‘Managing Risk and Audit at Federal Institutions and Government Departments’
About the webinar
The GRC landscape confronting federal agencies has significantly altered over the last decade. Today, it is characterized by an ever-growing number of compliance regulations, complex federal directives, increasing risks and data security threats. Agencies are under tremendous pressure to cope with these challenges through consistent risk monitoring and rigorous audits. However, the traditional, siloed approach to risk and audit management is no longer effective. Neither are legacy systems. As departments, units and operations become more interdependent, the need for integrated risk and audit management is growing. Enterprise-wide technology frameworks are fast proving to improve collaboration, reduce costs and enhance the effectiveness of GRC strategies.
The webinar will provide insights and best practices on how companies can build such collaborative, integrated frameworks for risk and audit management. Participants will gain a perspective on:
* Key challenges and issues in managing risk and audit in a federal agency
* Characteristics of an enterprise-wide risk and audit program and steps to reinforce it
* Core functionality of the next generation framework and technology
