About the webinar
With Governance, Risk and Compliance Management becoming a core element of business strategy, siloed risk, compliance and audit approaches are giving way to integrated GRC frameworks that provide much more value and benefits. An integrated GRC approach allows companies to streamline workflows, improve collaboration across the enterprise, confidently address a multitude of compliance requirements and wield greater control over risks. It also helps them reduce costs and focus on their core business rather than devote maximum time, energy and resources solely to GRC management.

Clearly, integrated GRC management bodes well for organizational profitability. However, implementing it, especially in large-scale global organizations, is extremely challenging. This webinar details some of the pitfalls to avoid and best practices to follow while building an integrated GRC program.

The speakers will provide perspectives on:

* Lessons learnt from successful GRC implementations

* Key people, process and technology issues with integrated GRC

* Proven approaches for measuring success and ROI of GRC

* Pitfalls to avoid when implementation integrated GRC

* Dealing with the convergence of business and IT risks
