How to Select the Right GRC Solution for Your Organization

Governance, risk management and compliance (GRC) processes are extensive; they are how an organization is directed and managed to achieve goals, considering risks to achievement, and complying with applicable laws and regulations.

Issues around information have become central to organizational strategies and GRC software is needed in organizations, and investment in these areas has been increasing. The GRC software space is vast with over 400 GRC software providers that span multiple categories and sub-categories of GRC related software.

Implementing a solution can be a lengthy and costly exercise, so it is imperative to choose carefully from the large number of options in the market. The issue is sifting through all the vendors with their offerings to find the one that best fits your organization. Buyers should have a clear understanding of their organizations functionality requirements, and a strategy in place for selecting the right partner. Join this webcast, and learn how to choose the right GRC solution for your organization as our experts discuss:

- How to understand your organizations functionality needs.
- Guidance for selecting the right partner including examples of good RFP questions.
- How to sift through the different solutions and make weighted assessments against solution criteria.

  • Evolving an Enterprise Risk Management Program Nov 17 2016 6:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    TBC
    Organizations are suffering from volatility across all risk types, and senior management are being pressured to improve enterprise risk management capabilities. An organization’s enterprise risk management (ERM) program can be a powerful management tool for achieving strategic and operational objectives, but it can be difficult to maintain and grow over time. If an ERM program is not moving forward it will stagnate, so executives need to implement a program that evolves with the times. A key factor in consistent ERM program development is evolution in a planned but flexible manner, supported by a common understanding of objectives and defined steps for improving program capabilities.

    Implementation has its challenges, however, there are a range of responses that can be effective for each ERM program challenge. In this webinar our experts discuss these responses and address some of the ways to implement and evolving GRC program that gets boardroom backing.
  • IT Security & Privacy Governance in the Cloud Oct 18 2016 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Moderated by Rebecca Herold, The Privacy Professor; Jacqueline Cooney from Booz Allen Hamilton and Chris Griffith from HPE
    After multiple newsworthy data breaches in recent times, IT security and privacy governance has gained importance across the globe. Most organizations have established security and compliance policies and procedures to protect their intellectual property and corporate assets, especially in the IT space. As companies transition their applications and data to the cloud, it is critical for them to maintain, or preferably surpass, the level of security they had in their traditional IT environment. Leaders are also responsible for defining policies to address privacy concerns and raise awareness of data protection within their organization, and for ensuring that their cloud providers adhere to the defined privacy policies. Failure to ensure IT Security when using cloud services could ultimately result in higher costs and potential loss of business, thus eliminating any of the potential benefits of the cloud.

    While security and privacy are related, they are also distinct. IT security is primarily concerned with defending against attacks, not all of which are aimed at stealing data, while privacy is specifically related to personal data held by an organization, which may be endangered by negligence or software bugs, not necessarily by malevolent persons. On this webinar our panel of experts will address some of the key distinctions, and discuss some best practices for managing IT security and implementing privacy governance for the cloud.
  • Data-Centric Security: Staying Ahead of the Threat Curve Recorded: Sep 21 2016 60 mins
    Dr Branden Williams; Robert Shields, Informatica; Steve Durbin, VP of the ISF; Farshad Ghazi, HPE Security - Data Security
    Over recent years, several organizations have suffered damaging data breaches where sensitive data was stolen.Alarmingly, things seem to be getting worse, and the results can be devastating. With the expanding threat landscape and the rise of the data-centric enterprise, companies must have parallel development of their security architecture to protect their sensitive data. But in the time it’s taken for data security to catch up with the changing environment, organizations have found their compliance and data protection programs vulnerable.

    CISOs must take steps to protect data that is expanding in volume, variety and velocity, and adopt security perimeters around identity attributes and data-centric security. Sensitive data must be continuously monitored for situational awareness and risk management, and CISOs should follow policies that encompass all data silos if they are to avoid security chaos. Enterprises must have an understanding of where sensitive data resides, who has access to it, and how it is impacted by new types of threats and vulnerabilities. Armed with these capabilities, CISOs can enhance sensitive data security to stay ahead of the threats, maintain regulatory compliance, and improve operational efficiency.

    Attend this panel discussion as we discuss the key issues which CISOs should be addressing today.
  • The GRC Evolution of Digital Enterprises with Convergence of ERM & Cybersecurity Recorded: Aug 25 2016 62 mins
    Colin Whittaker, Informed Risk Decisions; Yo Delmar, MetricStream; Chris McClean, Forrester; Sanjay Agrawal, CIMCON Software
    Cybersecurity has jumped to the top of companies’ risk agenda after a number of high profile data breaches, and other hacks. In an increasingly digitized world, where data resides in the cloud, on mobiles and Internet of Things enabling multitude of connected devices, the threat vectors are multiplying, threatening the firms’ operations and future financial stability.

    Organizations with the ability to view cybersecurity breaches as a risk, with associated probabilities and impacts, can strike the right balance between resilience and protection. By bringing together leadership and capabilities across fraud, IT, cybersecurity and operational risk, organizations can connect the dots and manage their GRC program more effectively. Organizations need to employ a proactive approach to review their existing risk management processes, roles and responsibilities with respect to cybersecurity to re-align them into an overall ERM strategy with boardroom backing.

    Attend this panel webinar, as we discuss these issues and address ways to develop an evolving GRC program to cope with the growing threat landscape.
  • Delivering Data Security with Hadoop and the IoT Recorded: Aug 9 2016 62 mins
    Robert D. Schneider, Partner at WiseClouds LLC, Reiner Kappenberger, HPE Security - Data Security
    The Internet of Things (IoT) is here to stay, and Gartner predicts there will be over 26 billion connected devices by 2020. This is driving an explosion of data which offers tremendous opportunity for organizations to gain business value, and Hadoop has emerged as the key component to make sense of the data and realize the maximum value. On the flip side the surge of new devices has increased potential for hackers to wreak havoc, and Hadoop has been described as the biggest cybercrime bait ever created.

    Data security is a fundamental enabler of the IoT, and if it is not prioritised the business opportunity will be undermined, so protecting company data is more urgent than ever before. The risks are huge and Hadoop comes with few safeguards, leaving it to organizations to add an enterprise security layer. Securing multiple points of vulnerability is a major challenge, although when armed with good information and a few best practices, enterprise security leaders can ensure attackers will glean nothing from their attempts to breach Hadoop.

    In this webinar we will discuss some steps to identify what needs protecting and apply the right techniques to protect it before you put Hadoop into production.
  • Combating Targeted Attacks to Protect Payment Data and Identify Threats Recorded: Jun 22 2016 61 mins
    Moderator: Colin Whittaker, PCI Industry Alumni; George Rice, HPE Security; Mike Urban, Javelin, Miguel Gracia,CardConnect
    The face of the threat landscape is becoming increasingly sophisticated and highly targeted. Advanced threats are succeeding in their effort to gain access to payment data of target organizations. CISOs, CXOs, and other executives need to become knowledgeable about the potential impacts of targeted attacks and advanced persistent threats. They need to become actively engaged in developing and implementing effective protective strategies.

    During this webinar we will discuss recommendations and best practices to help organizations develop a sustainable security program designed to respond quickly to targeted attacks and minimize the consequences of any data breaches.
  • PCI DSS: Preventing Costly Cases of Non Compliance Recorded: May 24 2016 62 mins
    Mathieu Gorge, VigiTrust; Terence Spies, HPE Security – Data Security; Derek Brink, Aberdeen Group; Dan Fritsche, Coalfire
    There is a substantial cost associated with reaching and maintaining PCI DSS compliance requirements, but the cost of non-compliance is often much greater. While the initial cost of the technology, staff and other resources necessary to implement satisfactory controls has its price tag, it is vital that all organizations affected by the PCI standard consider both the short and long-term costs of non-compliance as well as the benefits to meeting the requirements.

    This is especially important as PCI DSS evolves and increase in complexity as the standard moves towards becoming a federal regulation. The costs of non-compliance can far exceed the cost of systems to bring a company into compliance, as demonstrated by so many high profile data breaches. Join this executive panel as we discuss ways to prevent costly cases of non compliance with PCI DSS.
  • How to Identify and Reduce the Risks of 3rd Party Vendors Recorded: Apr 12 2016 60 mins
    Rebecca Herold (The Privacy Professor); Duncan Jones, Forrester; Yo Delmar, MetricStream; Neil Hooper, Rsam
    In a landscape filled with new threats and regulations managing the risks of 3rd party vendors is vitally important. Most financial institutions have tens of thousands of supplier relationships, and many data breaches originate through IT Vendors within the supply chain. Compounding this dilemma, regulators including OIG, OCC, FFIEC and others are increasing their focus on potential 3rd party risks. They want to see organizations proactively identifying potential risks, verifying that business partners providers and their employees are compliant, monitoring for changes that might create new risks or compliance gaps, and managing the investigation and remediation of incidents.

    During this webcast our panel will specifically address the practical 'how to's' around identifying and reducing the risks of 3rd party vendors, and we will focus on:

    - Typical risks resulting from third party relationships
    - Common deficiencies of vendor management practices used during the on-boarding process, and the life of the relationship
    - Moving from a reactive to a proactive (preventative) vendor management process
    - Real world examples will be used to illustrate the key points and recommendations
  • Implementing a Risk Migration Plan for PCI DSS 3.1 Recorded: Mar 22 2016 61 mins
    Dr Branden Williams; Mason Karrer, RSA; Stuart Hince, HPE Data Security, Emma Sutcliffe, PCI SSC
    Under the rules of PCI DSS v3.1, SSL and early versions of the Transport Layer Security (TLS) protocol are no longer considered acceptable for payment data protection due to "inherent weaknesses" within the protocol. Organizations who process payments must migrate to TLS 1.1 encryption or higher by June 2018. Prior to this date, existing implementations using SSL and/or early TLS must have a formal risk mitigation and migration plan in place. Moreover, details have just been released on the upcoming PCI DSS 3.2.

    In a landscape filled with new threats and new regulations, risk management has never been more critical. On this webinar we will look at ways to address the SSL and TLS vulnerabilities by implementing a pragmatic risk migration plan. Join us to learn about innovative data-centric protection technologies that mitigate risk, enable compliance, and are all the more important – especially if potentially insecure transfer methods will continue to be used through mid-2018.
  • Threat and Vulnerability Management: A Key Enabler of Your IT GRC Program Recorded: Feb 24 2016 62 mins
    Eric Vanderburg, the "Sheriff of the Internet"; Yo Delmar, MetricStream, Vivek Shivananda, Rsam, and Joe Fantuzzi, RiskVision
    In every organization, there are a multitude of applications and devices and a universe of threats and vulnerabilities. Every process, function and system has certain risks and compliance requirements. It is no longer enough to have a handful of diligent security and compliance professionals managing the organization's risk strategies and controls. Their processes must embrace business and mission professionals’ knowledge of risk, who evaluate the causal impact of threats to their operational performance, and participate in decision-making to meet their risk posture goals.

    Organizational GRC context is achieved by correlating business criticality, threat reachability, IT controls and vulnerabilities to optimize business performance through prioritized remediation, resulting in the desired risk posture with compliance governance. CIOs and CROs need to holistically integrate threat and vulnerability management processes into the broader IT governance and risk management program. This approach will allow IT organizations to not only deal with cyber-threats effectively, but also manage IT risks and compliance mandates more proactively.

    Join this executive panel as we discuss ways to use threat and vulnerability management to enable your IT GRC program.

  • Managing Third-Party Risk to Strengthen IT Vendor Governance Recorded: Oct 29 2015 60 mins
    Drew Wilkinson,Booz Allen Hamilton; Yo Delmar, MetricStream; Vivek Shivananda, Rsam
    Managing third-party risk is a big undertaking. Most financial institutions have tens of thousands of supplier relationships, and many data breaches originate through IT Vendors within the supply chain. Not only are the risks associated with third-party vendors increasing, but regulators are turning their attention to the need for organizations to manage IT vendor risk more effectively.

    Organizations should start by compiling a comprehensive inventory of all partnering third-parties and their associated risks, which will enable management to segment IT vendor risk accordingly and focus efforts by priority. They should also designate a business owner for managing third-party relationships, and provide them with the right decision-making powers to establish a disciplined governance and escalation framework for dealing with incidents that occur.

    By implementing such best practice organizations can streamline, automate and integrate IT Vendor governance, risk management, compliance, and audit programs, to build a new, more effective paradigm of supply chain performance. Join this education session as we address these key concepts and challenges for managing third-party risk to strengthen IT vendor governance.

    Brandon Dunlap (Moderator); Renee Murphy, Forester; Mike Rost, MetricStream; Vivek Shivananda, Rsam.
    With the increased regulation and scrutiny of the past decade, it is important for organizations to implement best practices in order to maintain control and achieve compliance with evolving regulatory requirements.

    Compliance teams of the brave new world are set up to discuss risks with the key business leaders, and have sufficient resources to ensure company compliance programs are implemented effectively. Their software applications for managing enterprise governance, risk management, and compliance (eGRC) continue to mature with impressive features and functions, and they are making notable strategic advances by linking these three business functions for more informed decision-making, to reduce risk exposure, lower audit costs, and demonstrate compliance.

    To replicate similar success in your eGRC program, you will need to focus on selling GRC value, practicing good GRC project management, and embedding GRC into corporate culture. Join this educational panel webinar as our experts delve deeper into this, and identify the best practices for implementing an eGRC program in 2015.
  • Understanding EMV, End-to-end encryption, and Tokenization. Recorded: Mar 19 2015 60 mins
    Moderator: Branden Williams. Panel: Ralph Spencer Poore, PCI SSC; Terence Spies, HP Voltage; Scott Carcillo, Merchant Link
    Data breaches are a widespread problem with over 1.1 billion records compromised in the last 10 years. According to the Verizon 2014 Data Breach Investigations Report, the vast majority of breaches occurred against small to mid-sized companies.

    As a result many retailers are focused on bolstering payment security and reducing fraud by implementing solutions such us EMV, End-to-end encryption (E2EE), and Tokenization. These solutions can work in tandem to protect merchants, and enable them to exceed regulatory requirements by securing card data across all payment environments.

    In this session our experts will present and define the three technologies, address the drivers that are leading the United States to implement EMV, and explain the complementary role of Tokenization with respect to EMV and End-to-end encryption.
  • Preparing for PCI DSS 3.0 and VISA Mandates Recorded: Feb 19 2015 61 mins
    Moderated by Branden Williams. Emma Sutcliffe, PCI SSC; Terence Spies, Voltage Security; Matt Getzelman, Coalfire
    * On this webcast we're giving away a pass ($2,490 value) to our partner event: The 3rd Annual Stress Testing USA Congress being held in NYC on March 18-19, 2015. All attendees will be included in the draw.

    The clock is ticking for enterprises that have not yet upgraded their payment card processing systems to be compliant with Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) 3.0. Since Jan. 1, 2015 , there is increasing urgency to not only understand the most important changes in PCI DSS 3.0, but also to be ready for a rigorous QSA assessment against those changes. Since PCI 3.0 is bigger, harder and more expensive than the previous iteration, merchants have their work cut out for them.

    PCI DSS founding member, Visa Inc. recently changed its policy on compliance assessments for the PCI DSS. More specifically, Visa decided that merchants who meet a stringent set of criteria including processing 75% of transactions using "Chip and PIN" enabled terminals, may be able to apply for an exemption from PCI DSS assessment requirements. Unfortunately, not all merchants are aware of the change, and fewer understand what it means.

    In this special presentation, our expert panel will explain the changes and their implications, and offer a detailed review of PCI DSS 3.0 to help enterprises prepare for assessments and make PCI compliance a whole lot easier.
  • Top Guidelines for Hadoop Security and Governance in 2015 Recorded: Jan 21 2015 61 mins
    Brandon Dunlap, Brightfly; Vidya Phalke, MetricStream; Sudeep Venkatesh, Voltage; Rebecca Herold, The Privacy Professor
    In 2015 the size of the digital universe will be tenfold what it was in 2010. Large-scale data breaches are on the rise across all sectors, and enterprise data security initiatives must evolve to address new and growing threats. Consumer transactions, personally identifiable information, customer records, and the like, all flowing together into the Hadoop ‘data lake’, will enable critical business insights but also means Hadoop installations will be a rich target for cyber-crime.

    Organizations are now faced with more stringent and expanding regulations, and must implement better governance, more effective risk management policies, and smarter data management approaches to enable them to do a much better job of controlling their business through the information explosion. As companies look at GRC technology, they should assess the capability of these solutions to deliver continuous monitoring of controls, key risk and security indicators, policies, and ensure they are natively integrated with critical business systems.

    We invite you to attend this round-table webinar as our panel of experts will discuss top guidelines for Hadoop security and governance in 2015, and provide guidance for assessing new technology solutions to ensure they will achieve your objectives.
