Maidenhead, UK, 8 April 2019 – Sword GRC, a supplier of specialist risk, compliance and governance solutions, has announced that it will be hosting a Policy Management by Design Workshop on Thursday 13th June 2019 at The Dorchester Hotel, London. The event is entitled; ‘A Workshop for an Effective, Efficient & Agile Policy Management Program’ and aims to provide a blueprint for effective policy management in dynamic, regulatory and risk business environments. Leading the workshop will be Michael Rasmussen, GRC Pundit at GRC 20/20 Research and an internationally recognized expert on governance, risk management and compliance.

The workshop will comprise lectures and interactive sessions on risk, compliance and policy management responsibilities. Attendees will learn approaches on how to:
- Define a process lifecycle for managing policies
- Establish policy ownership and accountability
- Provide policy consistency in style and language
- Communicate and track policies across extended business relationships
- Deliver effective training
- Monitor metrics to establish effectiveness
- Map policies to objectives, risks, controls, issues, and other GRC areas
Keith Ricketts, Vice President of Global Marketing at Sword GRC said; “The continual growth of regulatory requirements within complex business operations, along with global expansion, demand a well thought-out and implemented approach to policy management. The workshop will be highly interactive and provide a learning environment that will enable delegates to fully understand and embrace Policy Management processes and architectures within their organization.
“We are delighted to have Michael Rasmussen’s expertise on the topics of Policy Management strategy and process. His knowledge and experience of technology architectures and solutions will be invaluable to attendees during the workshop and when they come to apply their learning on critical processes across their organization.”
Michael Rasmussen of GR20/20 Research said; “Policy Management is an integral component of governance, risk management and compliance (GRC). Policies are critical to all components of GRC as they enable an organization to reliably achieve objectives, while addressing uncertainty, and act with integrity. Policy management provides a process to foster collaboration between functions, enabling the sharing of information to aid the organization in achieving objectives – and technology plays a critical role. This workshop is an ideal opportunity for attendees to explore how using technology can improve policy management processes and make them more efficient, effective and agile, which ultimately supports corporate GRC initiatives.”
