MetricStream to Host a Webinar on the ‘The Current Landscape

Featuring a Forrester Research analyst and MetricStream executive, the webinar will provide insights and best practices on building a sustainable GRC framework

MetricStream Inc., the market leader in Enterprise Governance, Risk and Compliance (GRC) solutions, announced today that Chris McClean – Analyst, Forrester Research, will join Gaurav Kapoor - CFO and General Manager, MetricStream, in a webinar on ‘The Current Landscape of GRC Platforms: Planning for 2011 and Beyond.’

About the webinar
Over the past few years, GRC management has emerged as a top business priority. Companies are investing significant time, costs and effort in developing strategies to proactively mitigate risks, comply with industrial regulations, improve audit management and enhance profitability.

Technology plays a key role in these endeavours. Not only does it improve the effectiveness of GRC management, it also enhances efficiency and collaboration, and reduces costs. In response, an increasing number of risk and compliance professionals are opting for GRC platforms.

However, each organization’s GRC needs are unique. How does one build a framework that is aligned with those needs? More importantly, how can that framework address future GRC concerns?

The webinar will provide insights into these questions and help companies understand the current landscape of GRC platforms. It will also identify those factors that need to be taken in to consideration when planning GRC strategies for the future.

The speakers will provide perspectives on:

* Designing information models to aggregate and correlate GRC data
* Deriving value from risk intelligence and regulatory content
* Using GRC analytics and BI to synthesize meaningful information
* Integrating GRC closely with IT infrastructure, applications and data
* Focusing on process improvement, loss mitigation and strategic decision-support
* Delivering value at the corporate board and executive levels
