URMC & Rsam to Present Case Study on Getting From Zero to GRC in 90 Days at 2014 EDUCAUSE Annual Conference

SECAUCUS, NJ--(Marketwired - October 01, 2014) - Rsam, the industry-leading provider of Governance, Risk, and Compliance (GRC) platforms, will be presenting a case study with University of Rochester Medical Center (URMC) at the 2014 EDUCAUSE Annual Conference at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida. The session, titled "Governance, Risk, and Compliance: How to Go from Zero to GRC in 90 Days," will be held on Wednesday, October 1st at 8:00 a.m. ET in Meeting Room W307A/B. 

The EDUCAUSE Annual Conference is the premier gathering for higher education IT professionals, providing content and exploration of today's toughest technology issues facing campuses around the world. As higher education continues to face constantly evolving compliance requirements like HIPAA, FERPA, PCI, and others, non-compliance and security breaches can result in more than just financial penalties; they can also result in damaging the reputation of the institution.

The presentation will feature Mike Pinch, Chief Information Security Officer at URMC and Vivek Shivananda, CEO of Rsam, as they provide a case study on how The University of Rochester Medical Center was able to take advantage of automation to successfully implement a GRC program to helps them improve risk, compliance, and security posture. 

"In a higher education environment, institutions mounting compliance requirements across various departments and multiple campuses, a GRC initiative may seem overwhelming," said Vivek Shivananda, CEO of Rsam. "This case study offers a real-world example of how a major university was able to leverage the Rsam platform to get started quickly and show value within a short period of time."

Attend this session to learn best practices to:

  • identify the "low hanging fruit" of GRC and identify areas where you can demonstrate value quickly
  • combine policy, compliance, risk, vulnerabilities, remediation, data archiving, and reporting information all into one central tool
  • monitor critical systems above risk thresholds, provide meaningful reports of problem systems
  • consolidate data from silos across multiple business units
  • create meaningful reports for management and senior executives -- all in 90 days
