Sword GRC’s Risk Management by Design workshop will be held in The Westbury, Dublin on October 22, and its Policy Management by Design workshop is set for the One World Trade Center, New York on October 24. Both events comprise of lectures and workshop tasks on risk, compliance and policy management responsibilities.

The Risk Management workshop will include risk management strategy, processes, information architecture and technology architecture.

Delegates will also learn how to map policies to an organization’s objectives, risks, controls, issues, and other GRC areas.

The workshops will be hosted by Michael Rasmussen, GRC Pundit at GRC 20/20 Research and an internationally recognized expert on governance, risk management and compliance. Rasmussen, known as the “Father of GRC” was the first to define and model the GRC market in 2002, while at Forrester Research, Inc.

“We are delighted to be again running our highly popular workshops with Michael Rasmussen’s expertise on the topics of GRC strategy and process,” Sword GRC global marketing vice president Keith Ricketts said. “We are expecting the same high level of interest as our workshops in London – the fact that they were over-subscribed demonstrates how important it is for companies to have a well thought-out and implemented approach to risk and policy management today.

“The workshops are a blueprint for effective management, designed to be highly interactive and provide a learning environment for delegates to fully understand and embrace GRC processes and architectures to apply in their own organizations,” he noted.

“The workshops have been designed to help attendees define a framework for risk and policy management,” Rasmussen added. “The agendas also include sessions on how technology can play a critical role in supporting operations to manage and provide the required information and metrics for GRC related issues across the enterprise.”
