CNA Insurance and Rsam to Present Case Study on Getting From GRC to ERM at 2014 Gartner Security and Risk Management Summit

SECAUCUS, NJ--(Marketwired - June 20, 2014) - Rsam, the industry-leading provider of Governance, Risk, and Compliance (GRC) platforms, will be presenting a case study with CNA Insurance at the 2014 Gartner Security and Risk Management Summit at the Gaylord Hotel in National Harbor, Maryland. The session, titled "The Journey from GRC to Enterprise Risk," will be held on Monday, June 23 at 5:45 p.m. ET in Theater B in Prince George's Hall C. 

The presentation, code TH11 on the Gartner agenda builder, will feature Greg Allen, Senior Security Architect at CNA Insurance and Vivek Shivananda, CEO of Rsam, as they provide a case study of how organizations can progress from a single GRC use-case to a holistic enterprise risk program that spans their entire organization. Rsam will be available in booth #625 to showcase the Rsam platform and demonstrate its new Objectives and Key Results (OKR) Metrics module.

For risk professionals, enterprise risk management (ERM) is the holy grail of effective risk management, yet getting from to ERM can be challenging for organizations that lack the right tools, common framework, organizational maturity and automation.

For many organizations, compliance requirements are very often the primary driver for GRC. "While compliance was our first priority, we quickly realized that we could be doing much more with the data we were collecting," said Allen. "We wanted to be prepared should a regulator walk in the door, and hand them a report showing that we are not just compliant, but that we are proactively evaluating risks, putting action plans into place and following up on those items to make enterprise-wide improvements."

Attend this session to learn best practices for:

  • adopting a common risk framework, taxonomy and scoring
  • consolidating data from silos across multiple business units
  • gaining the benefits of an object-based data model
