Today, business activities are dispersed throughout multiple geographies, breeding a whole host of new risks and compliance requirements. Global economic environments vary in their laws and regulations, making it integral for companies to stay on top of region-specific regulations. This is a challenge, especially for large organizations that have an abundance of internal policies and disparate systems that manage these policies. Organizations also have to take into consideration a number of other factors that can deter their compliance efforts, such as lack of internal accountability, limited enterprise-wide policy program visibility, and the inability to update policies while taking into consideration the various other changes in the internal and external environment.

Join experts Michael Rasmussen, Chief GRC Pundit at GRC 20/20 Research, LLC and Vinay Bapna, Senior Director of Product Marketing at MetricStream, as they discuss the process of implementing an effective policy management program. This webinar will also define the methodology used to identify the parameters for an effective policy governance program. Additional topics for discussion also include:

  • The ideal policy governance structure that organizations should work to achieve
  • The relationship between policies, standards, and procedures
  • Choosing between a centralized and decentralized policy management approach
  • Policy rationalization and how to arrive at an “optimum” number of policies
  • Best practices in policy writing, communication, and maintenance
