October 10, 2007 (PRLEAP.COM) Technology News
MetricStream, Inc., the market leader in enterprise-wide Governance, Risk, Compliance (GRC) and Quality Management solutions, today announced that it is sponsoring the ISACA and IIA 2007 Fall Conference on Information Systems Audit and Information Security. The company will be demonstrating its industry leading Enterprise Compliance Platform and its comprehensive suite of applications for effective risk and compliance management at the conference being jointly hosted by the Silicon Valley chapter of the Information Systems Audit and Control Association (ISACA) and The Institute of Internal Auditors (IIA).
The conference is being held on October 5, 2007 in Santa Clara , California . The conference will offer participants an array of tools and knowledge on critical IT-related issues including business continuity, disaster planning, risk assessment, audit planning and Sarbanes-Oxley compliance to help improve their organization's risk management and control processes.

Companies are managing increasingly complex IT systems and well-defined controls enable companies to identify and manage their IT related risks. Ability to manage and contain such risks is critical to ensuring business continuity as well as compliance with regulations and mandates such as Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOx), Gramm-Leach Bliley Act (GLBA), and Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA).

"The IT auditing and compliance process is inherently complex as it involves multiple internal and external stakeholders. Existing audit infrastructures have evolved from the bottom up and organizations lack a single system of record preventing top down visibility and control," said Gaurav Kapoor, General Manager Marketing and CFO of MetricStream. "MetricStream's audit solutions are helping companies with a federated way of handling operational, financial and IT audits through a single system."
