Join us for “Hacking the Speed of GRC: An hour of critical thinking of how we can improve the governance, risk, and compliance process”.

It’s happening on May 8th, 2020 at 10 AM Pacific/1 PM Eastern.


Since there are so many stakeholders involved and so many conflicting opinions, the debates around how to handle GRC will always be prevalent. On Defense in Depth, hosts Allan Alford and David Spark talked with security leaders about the role each part of GRC plays in building a business-first security program. Much of the debate was spent on determining which one of the three should lead the decision making. The ensuing conversation around GRC proved to be a ripe topic.

That’s why we’ve decided to hold a video chat on GRC, but focus on the operationalization of GRC. How can we simplify, speed up, eliminate, better integrate, or even automate elements of the process?

This live video chat will be led by CISO Series producer, David Spark (@dspark), along with Scott McCormick, CISO, Reciprocity and Mike Wilkes (@eclectiqus), CISO, ASCAP.

Special thanks to Reciprocity for sponsoring this video chat.

Start thinking about:

  • There are so many stakeholders, so much information that needs to be gathered and transmitted. What are the opportunities to simplify this seemingly laborious process?
  • Do efforts to determine governance, risk, and compliance actions get held up because of lack of information from another? If so, what is it and how can we deal with it better?

As always, we want lots of ideas, even the bad ones. We applaud bad ideas because they often lead to great ideas. Start thinking now because we will award the best bad idea that generates the most conversation.

The CISO Series Video Chats are an open discussion where all viewers and listeners are welcome to become participants.
