Agiliance and KuppingerCole to Host Webinar on Operational Risk Management

Security Experts From European-Based Analyst Firm KuppingerCole and Agiliance to Discuss New Trends in Operational Risk Management

SUNNYVALE, CA--(Marketwire - Nov 29, 2011) - Agiliance® Inc., the leading independent provider of Security and Operational Risk Management solutions for Governance, Risk, and Compliance (GRC) programs, today announced that it will host a webinar with leading European-based analyst firm KuppingerCole titled "Risk: The New Compliance." The webinar is scheduled for Thursday, December 1, 2011, 7:00 a.m. PT / 10:00 a.m. ET / 4:00 p.m. CET.

For many years, complying with government standards and industry regulations has been seen as a check box in the lengthy list of IT security tasks. However, most recent changes in the ecosystem (e.g., increased cyber security threats) have led to a reevaluation of this approach. More and more organizations realize that, instead of looking at GRC from a centralized perspective, it is more efficient to let business operations drive these efforts as that's where the organization's risk knowledge resides.

In the KuppingerCole / Agiliance-hosted webinar, KuppingerCole's co-founder and principle analyst Martin Kuppinger and Dr. Torsten George from Security and Operational Risk Management pioneer Agiliance will talk about the need for risk management, the benefits of taking a risk-driven approach, and how to use risk scores and controls as the standard approach for driving an organization's IT security efforts.
