Piyush Pant, Vice President of Strategic Markets and MetricStream Labs at MetricStream discussed the significance of integrating Information Security with the Enterprise GRC program
March 28, 2014 London, United Kingdom: MetricStream, a market leader in Enterprise Governance, Risk, and Compliance (GRC) solutions hosted a workshop for CXOs based across Europe on integrating Information Security with the Enterprise GRC Program at the CXO 10 Dialogue held on March 25, 2014, in Oxford, UK. The two-day event attracted CXOs from all major industries who shared insights into key areas of concern and best practices to be adopted in Information Security and Risk Management. Piyush Pant shared his thoughts on the value derived from a well-integrated GRC program and strategies organizations need to adopt to mitigate IT risks.
Addressing the gathering on new challenges confronting business, Mr. Pant said, “The rise of a digital universe that is global, social, mobile and interconnected; the flight of business to the Cloud; and IT/OT transforming into the orchestrator model demonstrate the growing disconnect among IT, security and business. Frequently, senior management is beset by irate stakeholders seeking explanation on risk management and control. In the midst of increased threats and regulatory complexity, it is a challenge to demonstrate control over material risks. In this context, we are pleased to meet with the CXOs and business leaders from major enterprises across Europe and exchange thoughts, ideas and perspectives on how a holistic view into GRC can help in managing and addressing these challenges.”
