Modulo Presents Webinar on Hot Topic of Vendor Risk Management Featuring Industry Analyst Michael Rasmussen of GRC 20/20

ATLANTA--()--Modulo, a leading provider of Governance, Risk and Compliance (GRC) solutions, announced today it will present an August 15th webinar on Vendor Risk Management (VRM) - one of the most pressing issues in information security, risk and compliance. Titled “Beyond IT: How Secure is Your Extended Enterprise,” the presentation will feature Michael Rasmussen, Chief GRC Pundit, GRC 20/20 LLC.

What: In this 45-minute webinar Rasmussen will explore the concept of how Vendor Risk Management is moving above and beyond IT. Enterprises are required to manage hundreds to hundreds of thousands of vendors. Traditionally, these VRM programs and technology support IT initiatives to protect sensitive, personal, or proprietary customer and enterprise information. Today, forward-thinking technology-driven enterprises are stretching the definition and role of VRM to determine 3rd party risk criticality to the business, improve relationships and processes, and report security & compliance across the extended enterprise.

Rasmussen will share insights from his research into the risky nature of 3rd party relationships, how to evaluate if your program is defensible, essential elements of 3rd party risk management program, and benefits of technology-enabled 3rd party risk management.

Modulo will conclude with examples of today's best practices from innovative end-users and how they are paving the way for tomorrow, leveraging experience from 1,000+ global implementations across a broad range of industries.

When: Thursday, August 15, 2013 @ 11:00am-11:45am ET
