RIO DE JANEIRO, Brazil, Aug 14, 2008 -- The picturesque city of Angra dos Reis (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) will host from August 14-17 one of the main events in the world on Governance, Risk and Compliance. Organized by Modulo, market leader for IT GRC, the sixth edition of the GRC Meeting will attract Chief Security Officers, experts involved in governance, audit and compliance, as well as many other professionals interested in debating the future of GRC.
Through workshops and presentations, attendees will learn how the three letters should be part of any company's core strategy. On the second day of the event, Modulo Risk Manager™ ( www.modulo.com
) users will be able to join the discussion at the Users Group meeting. In it, they will share experiences, suggest new possibilities of improvement for the product and get to know the new features included in the latest version of the software.
"Governance, Risk and Compliance are already present in most firms, but are often dealt with very fragmentally. The need of complying with various regulations has turned the integration of these three strategic points into an emerging discussion," said Ronald Radclif, Modulo's VP of Sales.
