In May 2013, the much anticipated update to the 1992 ICF was released and is already having far-reaching effects upon management teams, auditors, process & controls specialists, compliance teams as well as those with responsibilities related to internal controls over financial reporting (ICFR).

GRC, Governance, Risk, Control: ABC’s of GRC, the basics, the relationships, reporting, and the automation of GRC!
Learning Objectives:
Emerging software solutions provide integrated, automated and real-time GRC capabilities that enable better management of business risks. In today’s competitive business climate, it is more important than ever for companies implementing GRC solutions to start with a clear return on investment (ROI) objective and an appropriate plan to achieve this. Unfortunately, many organizations believe that GRC software purchases provide a “silver bullet” to immediate cost reductions, elimination of compliance issues and improved operational efficiencies.  Based upon experience in helping hundreds of clients through this implementation experience, Protiviti will discuss how to realize these benefits by selecting the right tool and implementation approach while aligning to corporate and strategic objectives.
Scott Wisniewski is a Managing Director within Protiviti’s Risk Technology group.  Scott has more than 10 years of experience helping clients select and implement GRC solutions, including Protiviti’s Governance Risk and Compliance Platform – The Protiviti Governance Portal.
