SAN JOSE, Calif., June 3, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- MetricStream, the global market leader in Governance, Risk, and Compliance (GRC) and Integrated Risk Management solutions, launches the GRC Summit 2021, on Monday, June 7. During this three-day virtual event, global leaders in GRC will gather to discuss how to turn risk into a strategic advantage during streamed keynote speakers, expert round tables, customer case studies, peer-to-peer roundtables, product showcases, and in-depth discussions centered around the theme of "Thrive on Risk."
Today, risk is everyone's business. In an environment where risk has permeated all levels of the organization, it is time to move beyond just creating resilience and looking at risk as an opportunity to drive change and create a competitive advantage. Organizations are challenged with the rapid velocity of risks, increased regulatory pressures, and added threats because of the digital transformation. Additionally, the changing workforce and the drive towards digitization has compelled organizations to engage all lines of the business in creating a culture of risk awareness and responsibility to ensure compliance.
"We are seeing an unprecedented time with the rapid digital transformation as a result of the pandemic, increased cyber threats, and emerging regulatory pressures," said Gaurav Kapoor, Chief Operating Officer, Co-Founder, MetricStream. "The GRC Summit brings together some of the brightest minds in the world of Governance, Risk Management and Compliance and will bring clarity to organizations that need to turn chaos into order now and into the future."
