There's a lot of hype about GRC in the market, but what kind of projects are really happening and where are companies concentrating their efforts today? Please join OpenPages and guest speaker John Hagerty of AMR Research for an informative webinar that will show a GRC project getting done today and the practical steps for a successful GRC project.

In this webinar, AMR Research will explain where companies are spending money and how they are focusing their attention for GRC. We'll then hear a real-world GRC case study that will show the vision and current efforts of their maturity path for GRC. And finally, we will discuss how the right technology solutions can actually bring it all together onto a single platform to support GRC initiatives.

You will learn:

--  A strategy for convergence and integration of risk management is a
    phrased approach
--  How to focus on one initial area that is most pressing and value-
    driven, and then follow with other key areas
--  How to solve the challenges of global implementation and cross-
    business coordination and convergence

    framework, taxonomy, and data model structure
