Shire Pharmaceuticals, OpenSky, and RSA Archer Partner for Award Winning GRC Solution

TOLLAND, CT--(Marketwired - June 05, 2013) - OpenSky Corporation announced OCEG award winning GRC solution with Shire Pharmaceuticals and RSA Archer. The award was presented at the 8th annual Compliance Week Conference in Washington D.C. Shire focuses on developing innovative specialty medicines to meet significant unmet patient needs. They provide treatments in Neuroscience, Rare Diseases, Gastrointestinal, Internal Medicine and Regenerative Medicine and are developing treatments for symptomatic conditions. OCEG Achievement Awards are based on GRC solutions that take an integrated approach to the governance, management and assessment of performance, risk and compliance across an entire business. Shire's award-winning solution was developed in collaboration with OpenSky Corporation and RSA Archer.

OpenSky congratulates Bob Litterer, Sr. Director Information Risk Management & Security, who spearheaded the project at Shire.

"Shire is honored to receive this award from OCEG," said Mr. Litterer. "The OCEG Redbook provided the solid framework for assessing our GRC programs. RSA's Archer was the tool we chose to manage our efforts, and OpenSky provided the experienced support."

"Together, we were able to create a solution that provides a holistic view of the compliance programs and allows depth, flexibility, and ongoing review," stated Peter Ridgley, OpenSky GRC National Practice Lead. With the RSA Archer platform, Shire can now more effectively assess and plan for improvements, prioritize future investment, and improve security awareness and compliance. The IT organization is also better aligned with business goals and can more easily adapt to meet changing business needs and compliance requirements.

"The work that Shire has undertaken to thoughtfully evaluate its capability to govern and manage its performance, risk and compliance and move forward with identified areas in need of maturation is exactly the type of process that the GRC Awards recognize," says Carole Switzer, OCEG Co-Founder and President.
