Did you know IDC reported that companies with active GRC programs resolve their security breaches 63% faster and are 33% more efficient at assessing their risks? Would you like to hear directly from leading companies achieving those kinds of GRC successes? This year RSA Charge is rolling through the Big-D...Dallas, TX!! In the land of "go big or go home," the world's largest gathering of GRC professionals is shaping up to be bigger and better than ever! Registration for the October 17-19 event is filling up fast. Don't miss out!

 

Consider the following: According to a PWC study, 62% of companies expect cyber risk to cause disruption in the next 3 years. EY also released research showing that 86% of respondents did not believe their cybersecurity functions fully meet the organization’s needs. And the cost of data breaches is projected to exceed $2T globally by 2019 according to Juniper Research. What do these stats have in common? They all describe some aspect of business risk associated with the use of technology. That's why one of the RSA Charge tracks I'm most excited about this year is called "Managing Technology Risk in Your Business". This track will focus on those unique challenges that emerge where the business and technology risk environments intersect (and occasionally collide).

 

The customer submissions for this year's sessions are once again truly outstanding! Customer presenters from all over the globe will be onsite to speak on a variety of topics such as assessing risk on specific technology assets, normalizing risk and compliance reporting, addressing the human element of technology risk, and much more. It's so incredible how many inspiring stories and ideas our customer community has to share. Whether you're a seasoned pro or just beginning your GRC journey and looking for the basics, you won't be disappointed. RSA Charge has something for everyone, from executive roundtables to operational hands-on labs and demos. Plus, nearly every session is customer-led! What a truly awesome community!!!

 

Did you know that companies with mature risk management programs are measurably more profitable? RSA Charge being the largest GRC gathering on the planet is a great place to start learning how! If you haven't registered already, I highly encourage you to get on it before it's too late! The full schedule can be viewed here, and the registration page here. Several resources have also been uploaded on the RSA Charge website to assist with trip planning, etc. Need help justifying the cost? No problem! Several resources are available including an ROI calculator and more. Look forward to seein ya'll in Dallas real soon!
