Leading with GRC

MetricStream is pleased to announce its 4th Annual GRC Summit 2016, the largest gathering of GRC leaders in the world, taking place at the Marriot Marquiss Hotel Washington DC from April 25th to 27th. We extend an invitation to the GRC Community at large, including our customers, partners, analysts, industry experts and executives to join us at the GRC Summit 2016 and contribute to our collective vision of "Leading with GRC."

What does it mean to lead with GRC?
  • *Preserve corporate integrity by building world-class GRC programs
  • *Protect reputations and brands of leading modern enterprises of today and tomorrow
  • *Perform by providing the regulatory and risk intelligence needed to drive decision-making and business performance



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.

Mark Boileau,
Manager, Global Trade Compliance,


Marriott Marquis, Washington DC
April 25-27, 2016
