The San Jose GRC Fundamentals, Strategy, & Technology bootcamp is underway with terrific interaction. The bootcamp is comprised of implementers of large down to medium sized organizations, professional service firms, and a few technology providers.
The top questions/issues that the attendees are trying to resolve over the course of three days are (coming directly from them):
- New SEC Disclosure requirements (coming to bear in February 2010) that require statements of board responsibility for risk oversight
- GRC is complicated – how do you make sense of all of it.
- What have others implemented, and what are the tasks and steps to start a GRC strategy
- How do align and optimize GRC to business processes and performance
- How do you make GRC relevant to the line of business
- Overview of the broad GRC environment within large corporations and how different roles work together
- Bringing OCEG content and training to Europe
- Global issues impacting GRC in large distributed organizations
- How large organizations strategize to approach GRC from the board down
- How do GRC solutions deliver value and how do you approach and define the GRC technology market
- Seeing more adoption of GRC and ERM – what are the differences
- What are the board responsibilities and communications related to GRC
- There is a disconnect within a specific organization on what to achieve – how do you overcome different factions and control issues within GRC strategies
- How do you know if your GRC strategy is effective and providing value to the organization
- A new organization implementing GRC wants to understand how do they accelerate maturity so that GRC success and value does not take years to realize
Great interaction and discussion so far. Sorry that most of you have to miss it – though please comment on your thoughts to the top GRC Questions & Issues.
The Atlanta and Chicago Bootcamps are coming up soon (Atlanta registration closes in a few days). We will be doing one in Europe this summer as well as more across the US.
