Last year, BWise met with many IT and risk management executives and we spoke about the importance of the integration of security, IT GRC and risk initiatives at the enterprise. Throughout the year, BWise has continued to hear this recurring theme of collaboration between business units, Risk Management and IT, reinforcing the themes BWise is based upon. Since BWise is now a NASDAQ OMX company, we anticipate even more IT security, business continuity, IT GRC and risk related conversations with executives and analysts at the summit and how BWise can assist organizations with these risk management and IT GRC imperatives.”
