Thomson Reuters Expert To Speak At IIA All Star Conference


Providing insight into best practices for managing corporate governance, risk, and compliance

Governance, risk, and compliance expert from Paisley, a Thomson Reuters business, will provide insight into current practices for managing corporate GRC at an upcoming industry conference. The Institute of Internal Auditors’ 2009 All Star Conference will be held in Las Vegas, from Oct. 19 - 21.

Over the past decade, there has been plenty of evidence that corporate financial governance failures are persistent and pervasive. This has demonstrated the importance of taking an integrated approach to GRC. This, however, requires a major change in beliefs and professional attitudes; and the internal audit function is in a unique position to lead the way.

At the conference, Bruce McCuaig, vice president of risk and compliance at Paisley, will present GRC: Convergence Killers & the Role of Internal Audit. This session will explore the challenges facing organizations, discuss how an organization can begin a GRC convergence project, and address the central and strategic role internal audit can play in driving a more disciplined approach to risk management, control, and governance processes.

“Paisley has a proven track record of helping businesses converge risk, compliance, and audit programs to improve overall corporate performance,” said McCuaig. “I’m pleased to share our best practices in GRC convergence at this important event for internal audit professionals.”

The IIA All Star conference features sessions on critical issues facing the governance, risk, and compliance industry, including internal controls, information technology, ethics, compliance, and fraud.

Paisley will also showcase the industry-leading internal audit functionality of its Paisley GRC solutions at the conference exhibit forum. Demonstrations will include Paisley Enterprise GRC®, its flagship GRC solution for enterprise customers, as well as GRC on Demand®, a Software as a Service (SaaS) based GRC solution for small to mid-market organizations.

Recognized throughout the industry for its internal audit expertise, Paisley software has helped hundreds of organizations unite internal audit processes with other GRC disciplines—including financial controls management, operational risk management, enterprise risk management, and compliance.

With over 30 years experience in the field of risk and control management, McCuaig is responsible for directing an operational risk management program at Paisley as part of a company-wide effort to implement a top-down, risk-based approach to its own operations. He has been instrumental in positioning the company as a knowledge leader in enterprise governance and risk management solutions. McCuaig is an experienced speaker, presenter, and award-winning author. He regularly participates in international conferences and publishes articles in professional audit and financial journals.
