MetricStream, the market leader in Enterprise-wide Governance, Risk, and Compliance (GRC) solutions, announced today that Michael Rasmussen, Risk and Compliance Advisor of Corporate Integrity, will join Gaurav Kapoor, Chief Operating Officer of MetricStream, to discuss the topic ‘Protecting Corporate Reputation: Legal Governance Strategies for the General Counsel’. This discussion will be hosted by MetricStream on Wednesday, July 25, 2012 at 9 am Pacific time.
With the increased level of risks that organizations encounter today, be they regulatory violations, unethical sales and marketing practices, and violations of HR practices, the role of the General Counsel calls for constant vigilance. They need to be able to steer their organization away from risks that could mar its reputation or even lead to paying hefty penalties. But with the changing risk and legal environment, general counsels need to take one step further and adopt a robust legal governance program. With the numerous mandates that need to be complied with, and the regulatory examinations and investigations that are conducted by the regulatory bodies, the legal governance program need to ensure that their organizations are aligned with the regulatory changes, risks are detected and mitigated in real-time and audits are performed regularly.
Gleaning from their decades of experience in risk and compliance, Mr. Rasmussen and Mr. Kapoor will share their perspectives on the significance of embedding governance, risk, and compliance management program for maintaining regulatory compliance and discuss:
- The challenges faced by organizations in the current business and risk environment
- The significant role played by the general counsel in protecting organizational reputation
- The fundamentals of a legal governance program
- The role of technology in enhancing the effectiveness of a legal governance program
