The webinar will be led by senior enterprise GRC experts Isabel Smith, Director of Internal Audit and eGRC Program at Johnson & Johnson and Shellye Archambeau, Chief Executive Officer at MetricStream.
About the webinar:
Organizations have to deal with an ever-changing variety of regulations ranging from FDA to HIPAA, and FCPA to SOX. This, coupled with organizational expansion into newer markets and geographies, calls for the implementation of an enterprise GRC program. Such programs have been proven to help organizations gain greater visibility into risks, monitor compliance more effectively, and streamline audits. They also integrate enterprise-wide GRC initiatives, cut down on duplicated efforts and redundancies, provide real-time GRC intelligence, and address GRC issues in a disciplined and unified manner.
However, there are important factors that organizations need to look into when embarking on an enterprise GRC journey. During the webinar, Ms. Smith and Ms. Archambeau will help participants gain valuable insights into:
Understanding the fundamental components for building an Enterprise GRC program
Overcoming challenges in laying the foundation for the program
Identifying the key factors when choosing a GRC technology framework
Integrating the various components of GRC technology
