OpenPages and PricewaterhouseCoopers to Present at the 2009 Enterprise Risk Management (ERM) Symposium

WALTHAM, MA--(Marketwire - April 27, 2009) -


Who: John Kelly, Director of Product Marketing, OpenPages

What: The 2009 Enterprise Risk Management (ERM) Symposium

Where: Sheraton Chicago Hotel & Towers, Chicago, IL

When: May 1, 2009, 9:45-11:00 a.m., Concurrent Sessions 4, Room R14

OpenPages®, the leading provider of enterprise GRC solutions that optimize business performance, invites attendees to learn how to implement a comprehensive privacy program at the 2009 Enterprise Risk Management (ERM) Symposium. Data privacy is one of the most important elements of a regulatory compliance program. In today's increasingly global marketplace, sensitive customer and employee data is sent instantaneously across borders and often distributed to a complex network of partners, contractors and suppliers. Compounding the problem is the fact that privacy regulations vary across countries, regions and states.

Throughout the session, Kelly will describe considerations and best practices for implementing a comprehensive privacy and compliance program. The session will also discuss the successes, pitfalls and benefits that compliance officers face in implementing a comprehensive privacy and compliance program.

"In the past decade, we have seen relatively stable times, as well as extreme events that shook our industries to their core," said John Kelly, Director of Product Management, OpenPages. "This year's symposium will focus on the lessons learned from ERM and illustrate why a strong risk and compliance program is essential for senior management to create systematic value and competitive advantage through effective managing of risk and capital."
