Ideagen is pleased to announce that it is supporting the 2015 Governance, Risk and Control (GRC) Conference, hosted by ISACA and The Institute of Internal Auditors (IIA) from August 17-19, in Phoenix, Arizona, USA.
As an IIA’s Industry Leader, Ideagen will exhibit at this conference, demonstrating that best practice is key to achieving organizational excellence. Having supported internal audit departments worldwide for over two decades, Ideagen realizes the importance of the latest trends and regulations in order to continuously meet the expectations of its clients, which include the likes of Heineken, BBVA and BDO.
Ken Ebbage, Ideagen’s Managing Director of Risk and Compliance Division, said: “We are honored to support the GRC Conference hosted by ISACA and The IIA and feel that this is an important opportunity to meet and talk with high level auditors and risk professionals. It will also be an excellent time to learn which emerging trends and concerns are top of the mind for these industry leaders.”
With ever-changing markets and the introduction of new controls, companies have fallen under the watchful eye of regulators to meet strict industry targets. Failure to meet these goals can be disastrous for organizations and can lead to damaged reputations.
Mr Ebbage added: “It has become evident that GRC for organizations operating in highly regulated industries require to be so much more than just compliant. Carrying out comprehensive internal audit and managing risks is now extremely important – if not mandatory.”
The GRC Conference is one of the most important events to attend this year. The event will feature more than 30 sessions on topics such as risk mitigation, anti-bribery and corruption, privacy, technology and audit effectiveness related to millennials and more. The sessions will be divided into four categories:
- IT Emerging Trends
- A Holistic Approach to GRC Processes & Implementation
- ERM: Impact on Strategic Solutions
- Regulatory & Compliance Issues:Best Practices
Attendees will also be treated to two pre-conference workshops entitled ‘Enabling IT Risk Management Using COBIT 5 For Risk’ and ‘Designing and Maintaining Effective Risk Appetite Frameworks’.
Participants working on professional credentials from The IIA and ISACA will gain new insights, deeper knowledge and greater understanding of internal auditing and IT, which will provide value, both at certification exam time and in their professional practice. Content covered will be especially helpful to candidates pursuing The IIA’s Certified Internal Auditor (CIA) and Certification in Risk Management Assurance (CRMA), as well as ISACA’s Certified Information Systems Auditor (CISA), Certified in the Governance of Enterprise IT (CGEIT), and Certified in Risk and Information Systems Control (CRISC) credentials.
