Join GSMI on October 5th, 6th, and 7th in Hotel & Conference Center - Boston for the 2010 GRC Conference to learn strategies to join the movement from man- aging risk as a transaction or compliance activity to adding business value by improving operational decision making and strategic planning. Explore governance, risk and compliance challenges by industry, including technology, retail, banking, insurance, transportation/ logistics, pharmaceutical, telecommunications, public sector, and supply chain.

GRC is often positioned as a single business activity, when it actually includes multiple overlapping and related activities within an organization including internal audit, compliance programs like SOX, enterprise risk management (ERM), operational risk, and incident management among others. Within the GRC realm, if the first element –Governance--is not in place, the second two elements -Risk Management and Compliance- become irrelevant and cannot be meaningfully achieved. Likewise, if second element --Risk Management-- is not in place then achieving Compliance becomes irrelevant and generally cannot be meaningfully achieved.
It is necessary to improve each of the elements of your organization’s GRC initiative as well as increase overall performance by breaking down communication bar- riers between finance, IT (Information Technology) and Legal departments. Organizations must evaluate their financial activities to ensure the correct operation of all financial processes, as well as compliance with any finance-related mandates. Learn how to strike an appropriate balance between business reward and risk. Ensure that the IT organization supports the current and future needs of the business, and complies with all IT-related mandates. Finally, tie all three components together through your organization’s legal department and Chief Compliance Officer.
