LONDON, July 10, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- MetricStream, a market leader in Governance, Risk, and Compliance (GRC) Management solutions, will host the highly anticipated MetricStream GRC Summit Europe 2014, taking place on October 20 - 21, 2014 at the May Fair Hotel in London, UK. This GRC Summit follows on the heels of the successful MetricStream GRC Summit in Las Vegas, USA, which took place in April 2014, and convened MetricStream customers, partners, industry analysts, and more. The Europe GRC Summit will feature prominent speakers from various industries and regions, who will share their perspectives on the event theme "Navigating your GRC Journey."
"Continuing with our commitment to provide the premier platform for GRC thought leadership, collaboration, and innovation, I am pleased to announce that we are hosting the MetricStream GRC Summit Europe 2014 in London this October 20-21," said Shellye Archambeau, Chief Executive Officer, MetricStream. "MetricStream GRC Summits are a one-of-a-kind gathering of the best minds in the GRC field, representing diverse regions and industries. The London event will convene Europe's Policy Makers, CEOs, Board Directors, Analysts, GRC Executives, and Industry Thought Leaders to discuss and debate key GRC topics, and provide innovative insights on how organizations can get the most value from their GRC programs."
MetricStream GRC Summit Europe 2014 will feature a broad range of inspiring keynotes, informative industry panel discussions, engaging customer case studies, and analyst presentations. Based on the theme "Navigating your GRC Journey," the event will have presentations and conversations on how businesses can navigate and derive value from what MetricStream defines as the three phases of the GRC Journey – GRC Program Strategy, GRC Program Design, and GRC Program Implementation.
"Companies based in Europe, as well as European organizations based in other countries, are faced with an increasingly stringent and dynamic regulatory environment – as was most recently evident when a European financial services company was fined billions of dollars for violating US sanctions," said Piyush Pant Vice President of Strategic Markets at MetricStream. "Today, lawmakers and regulators across Europe are introducing newer and stricter business regulations in line with their global counterparts. They are scrutinizing companies more closely, and refusing to tolerate any instance of non-compliance. In this complex business environment, the MetricStream GRC Summit aims to bring together business leaders from across Europe to collectively discuss how they can build better governed, more compliant, and risk-intelligent organizations."
At the recently concluded GRC Summit in Las Vegas, MetricStream shared its vision for Pervasive GRC, which is about creating strong risk-aware cultures, good governance, and proactive compliance programs across the organization and extended enterprise. With support from MetricStream, leading organizations are able to achieve a more transparent, collaborative, and federated GRC program that supports decision-making, and drives business performance.
MetricStream is currently accepting speaking proposals for MetricStream GRC Summit Europe 2014. Selected speakers will have the opportunity to share their point of view, present their success stories, and articulate their vision for the future of GRC. The last date to submit speaking proposals for consideration is August 31, 2014. Please send your speaking proposals to firstname.lastname@example.org.
