Agiliance and Forrester Research Team Up to Host Webinar on Enterprise Risk Management for Government Entities

During the Web Event, 'Managing IT Risk in the Era of Government 2.0,' Industry Experts Will Address Issues Affecting Government Organizations Including Risk, Compliance and IT Security Prioritization

SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwire - January 19, 2010) - Agiliance Inc., the leading independent provider of integrated Governance, Risk and Compliance (GRC) solutions, today announced that it will host a live Webinar with Forrester Research titled "Managing IT Risk in the Era of Government 2.0" on January 21, 2010 at 2:00 PM EST. The event will feature industry experts from Forrester Research and Agiliance who will leverage their insight to educate government entities on the nature of enterprise risk and also outline strategies for creating a sustainable program to measure, manage and monitor enterprise risk and compliance.

For government organizations, understanding the nature of risk is a critical component to their business processes. Continuity in measuring and managing risk is often difficult, however, given the subjective nature of risk, particularly for government organizations where risk levels vary greatly within the enterprise. The virtual Webinar will eliminate this confusion and provide a clear cut approach to risk management as well as compliance and IT security prioritization.

The interactive session will feature Khalid Kark, Vice President and Principal Analyst on GRC initiatives at Forrester Research and Mike Saintcross, Agiliance Federal Solutions Director. They will focus the discussion on the following industry topics:

--  IT Security Priorities and Risk Management
--  The Processes of Risk Management
--  ERM Program Management in the era of Government 2.0
--  Customize the Risk Management Process
--  Government Compliance and Risk Case Studies

"Without utilizing a central risk management process, government establishments will find it exceptionally difficult to monitor all of the moving parts within an enterprise and effectively identify and analyze all risks affecting their organization," said Ed King, Agiliance VP of Product Management. "This Webinar will explore the nature of risk and provide an overview of how IT-GRC technology can be utilized to increase efficiencies and reduce redundancies and translating risk reduction into true business value for all government organizations."
