New York City, NY, March 11, 2015 – Lynx Technology Partners (Lynx), today announced the company’s participation at INSIGHTS 2015 fi360 Conference. Lynx Chairman & CEO, Aric K. Perminter, a well-known expert on the topic of Governance, Risk, and Compliance (GRC) will present practical advice on how organizations can streamline their information security programs to achieve better risk management results. The session, “Turning Risk into Results: Enabling compliance and process optimization with GRC” will take place Thursday, March 19th at the Orlando World Center Marriott.
“The true power of GRC is realized when it becomes integrated into the strategic planning function of the business. Risks do not exist in a vacuum,” said Aric K Perminter, Chairman & CEO of Lynx Technology Partners. “Instead, risk should be tied to the objectives of the business. In this way risk becomes the enabler of a strong security posture while GRC process optimization helps lower total program costs.”
GRC is a discipline that aims to synchronize information and activity across governance, risk management, and compliance in order to create efficiency, enable more effective information sharing and reporting, and avoid wasteful overlaps. Although interpreted differently in various organizations, GRC typically encompasses activities such as corporate governance, enterprise risk management (ERM) and corporate compliance with applicable laws and regulations.
The session, “Turning Risk into Results: Enabling compliance and process optimization with GRC” will discuss the dichotomy of how most organizations have implemented a variety of operational and security controls to address today’s dynamic threats, but they lack the means to assimilate security data from multiple sources and continuously measure their security posture. Participants will learn how enterprise-wide visibility of IT risk posed by applications, devices, business processes, and users engaging with data is vital to ensuring continuous protection of critical business systems and information. Additionally, participants will learn about opportunities to enable their compliance and process optimization program through GRC process control to help:
– Lower the cost of compliance management and related audit activities through centralization and automation
– Expand and improve risk coverage through more strategic allocation of resources and better visibility into risks
– Increase effectiveness of business processes by implementing continuous monitoring techniques
