Great food for thought from Michael. "IT is not operating in a vacuum". The need to link processes, risk and compliance between departments such as sales, manufacturing, compliance, cloud, IoT, HR, etc. is a potential minefield. It really brings the "agility" buzzword into tangible context. 

Please let us know if you have any questions or comments, our speakers and support team are here to help navigate your GRC challenges or questions.
