MetricStream CEO Shellye Archambeau to Present a Session on Automating Information Security Risk and Compliance Processes at AGC's 7th Annual West Coast Emerging Growth Conference

MetricStream, Inc., the market leader in enterprise-wide Governance, Risk and Compliance (GRC) solutions, today announced that its CEO, Shellye Archambeau, has been invited to speak at the 7th Annual Information Security and West Coast Emerging Growth Conference. Organized by America's Growth Capital (AGC), the conference will be held on February 14, 2011 in San Francisco. Among the distinguished group of experts speaking at the event is Ms. Archambeau, who will be presenting a session on Automating Information Security Risk and Compliance Processes.

As the CEO of MetricStream, Ms. Archambeau has been instrumental in shaping the company's growth. Today, MetricStream is a global leader in the development of innovative and cutting-edge GRC solutions. Some of the largest and most well-known companies across industries, verticals and countries have chosen MetricStream to power their GRC programs.

Among the key features of MetricStream's solutions is their ability to automate crucial workflows in information security management. Over the last decade, information security has emerged as a key business priority. The increasing incidence of threats such as cyber-theft, hacking, viruses and fraud are leading more organizations to invest in building a secure, robust information security framework. However, challenges abound. Organizations have to constantly monitor risks and controls, provide reports and keep abreast of changing compliance regulations – all of which can be difficult to implement particularly in large-scale global operations.

Ms. Archambeau will provide insights into how such challenges can be overcome by automating risk and compliance workflows in information security management. Process automation not only minimizes risks, but it also helps organizations respond more efficiently to the full range of compliance requirements. More importantly, it enables organizations to proactively identity and manage vulnerabilities before they escalate into high-impact risks.

MetricStream IT-GRC Solution is designed to meet these very specifications. Equipped with innovative capabilities, the solution provides end-to-end automation for information security risk and compliance workflows. It also provides an accurate real-time view of risks across the enterprise through powerful executive dashboards that can be drilled down to analyze the information in greater detail.

Apart from managing risks more effectively, the solution's automated capabilities enable organizations to confidently coordinate all IT compliance requirements including PCI DSS, HIPAA, NERC and FISMA, and all compliance frameworks including COBIT, ITIL and ISO 27002. It eliminates the need for manual intervention or spreadsheets, and instead saves time, effort and resources.

MetricStream IT-GRC Solution is built on a central platform which integrates and streamlines the management of IT-GRC across departments, units and business locations. Advanced capabilities including built-in remediation workflows, embedded best practices and email based alerts help organizations stay ahead of information security requirements, thus minimizing revenue loss and maximizing business value.
