The Art and Science of GRC, presented by Tim Carson & John Owens

Governance, Risk and Compliance (GRC) is both art and science as organizations try to balance compliance obligations, managing risks and achieving their business objectives.  Attend this session to learn the basics of GRC, understand the individual and related disciplines, obstacles organizations face, and how they are implementing this multi-disciplinary initiative.

Strengthening the Three Lines of Defense Through Better Risk Management, presented by Patrick Potter

Internal audit organizations, risk management teams and other second lines of defense perform some level of risk management, but these practices even within the same organization, aren’t always aligned or working toward common goals.    Attend this session to learn how these groups can align risk management practices more effectively and better utilize the three lines of defense model to achieve risk and control objectives.

Compliance... Made as easy as 1-2-3!, presented by Rick Hacker

Rick will share with you how he and his team developed the 1-2-3 Compliance Program in order to manage an unexpected tripling in SOX scope during this time.  As a result of implementing this program, their InfoSEC GRC Team was able to:

  • Eliminate 80-hour work weeks
  • Distribute sole ownership of SOX Requirements by the InfoSEC GRC team to appropriate business groups
  • Enforce accountability and ensure accurate tracking for quarterly reports, which increased from 20 to over 60 in just 5-months
