Platinum KPMG


A great interaction of companies and collaboration that goes beyond a user conference focused on solutions to an event aimed at educating and advancing GRC broadly.

Michael Rasmussen
Chief GRC Pundit,
GRC 20/20

Perhaps one of the best benefits of this conference is the sense of community and the sharing that takes place. We have learned so much from the MetricStream GRC community about the journey, best practices, and pitfalls. These lessons are invaluable as we proceed towards pervasive GRC.

Tim Mclallen
Business and Technology Director,

I applaud MetricStream for sharing this event with so many people who are not current MetricStream customers and being respectful of the intent to learn more about GRC in an agnostic way rather than leveraging the opportunity as a sales campaign.

Manager, Global Trade Compliance,
