    4 Topical Tracks:

    IT Risk Management & Data Security:
    Information security, privacy and protection are at the top of the agenda for all high-powered organizations of the 21st century. Linking your IS and IT risk management practices to an overarching GRC program can insure that IT is able to support the current and future needs of other business units. The IT GRC track will analyze the integration of IT into your GRC processes, metrics and measurements techniques and the compliance concerns that need to be addressed from an IT and IS standpoint.
    Risk Management:
    The ERM track will provide insight into the importance of a comprehensive framework for managing, mitigating and using risk to your advantage. Sessions within this track will address the creation of a risk management culture, as well as the analysis of specific events and circumstances that need to be addressed within corporate ERM. Topics of discussion include reporting risk to your board, analyzing risk appetite and establishing metrics and measurements for ERM.
    Audit Management:
    In the wake of large corporate performance disasters, the financial crisis and subsequent reforms, corporate boards of directors (BODs) have come under growing scrutiny and are being held accountable for their oversight responsibilities. BODs, in turn, are relying more heavily on internal audit departments to ensure that corporate systems are functioning to protect them from the types of scandal, fraud and misrepresentation that have damaged many companies over the past decade. As a result, these departments are undergoing a quick transformation from their traditional role as backward-looking investigators into a process-oriented, forward-looking group with international perspective that can provide education, assurance and insight beyond their traditional annual auditing plans. Topics of discussion addressed in the Audit Track include
    In the Compliance Track sessions, GRC Summit attendees will gather to discuss the challenges of corporate ethics & compliance, offering insights on more effective compliance programs and financial reporting-- including, lessons learned the hard way on how not to manage corporate compliance.

    Letter from the producer:

    Dear GRC Executive,

    Today, organizations are expected to manage a variety of risks that would have been unthinkable a decade ago. The GRC summit provides risk and governance audit, and compliance executives a platform to share ideas, learn from peers and improve upon existing methodologies that have been created to support the people, process and technologies of their organizations.

    In its 10th installment, the 2014 Governance, Risk Management and Compliance Summit will be looking at numerous GRC topics facing corporate professionals and leading companies. GRC Boston will provide you with implementable solutions and best practices.

    Over the course 3 three days, using specific examples and case studies, summit participants will discuss how to increase effectiveness of current GRC programs, fairly measure management performance, identify how COSO Enterprise Risk Management enables organizations of all types and sizes to understand and better manage their risk environments, and identify leading data security policies and strategies. Attendees will learn best practices in control frameworks, as well as practical information that will enable you to manage auditor expectations, meet regulatory requirements, and leverage your company’s investment in internal controls in support of business goals and objectives.

    Join us this March 4-6, 2014 for the 10th installment of the Governance, Risk Management and Compliance Summit. Hear from industry case studies and thought leaders across four informational session tracks. For more information please visit us at, or contact me directly at 888.409.4418.
