May 15, 2012 | Palo Alto, California: MetricStream, the market leader in enterprise-wide Governance, Risk and Compliance (GRC) solutions, today announced its participation in the Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) Innovation Forum 2012 which will be held on May 15-16, 2012 in Cambridge. With a confluence of senior technology executives, researchers from renowned institutions and the TCS Co-Innovation Network (COIN™), this event is an innovative platform for participants to hear from thought leaders about best practices in some of the emerging technologies and trends that will benefit businesses and organizations.

During the forum, Mr. Ludwig will provide insights on GRC, the security and privacy tools, compliance solutions and copyrighting techniques that organizations need to employ in today’s changing business dynamics.

There has been a dramatic rise in the demand for an effective and robust GRC platform in the last decade. Given that today’s emerging technologies provide quicker and easier access of data or information that are made available on open platforms, there is an impending challenge of how organizations can protect sensitive data and prevent security breaches. Organizations need to implement an integrated and robust GRC platform which provides comprehensive risk assessment, end-to-end risk monitoring across the enterprise, deliver reports, and adapts to emerging regulatory norms.

MetricStream's market-leading GRC platform is being used by many of the world's largest companies as well as several mid-sized organizations to streamline and automate end-to-end GRC workflows across business departments, units and geographies. It provides superior user experience through intuitive navigation tools, visualization of GRC data, and simplified information sharing and collaboration capabilities. The solutions also enable GRC to be integrated with IT- GRC initiatives for a federated, cohesive framework that seamlessly adapts to future GRC requirements. Powerful dashboards help monitor the status of GRC at every stage, and highlight issues that require attention. The solution comes with automated issue remediation workflows and is embedded with capabilities like linking of policies to risks and controls, data integration, reporting, analytics and regulatory content that enable organizations to improve risk-based decision-making, manage risks and regulatory challenges across the enterprise and enhance business performance.
