MetricStream has entered into a strategic partnership with The Institute of Internal Auditors (IIA) to support best practices in Internal auditing and government, risk, and compliance (GRC).

"The internal audit function is at the center of a company’s strategy for effective risk management and sustainable compliance with internal policies and regulatory requirements," said Gaurav Kapoor, CFO and GM at MetricStream. "Through this partnership we will support the practice of internal auditing by advocating an integrated and enterprise-wide approach for managing audit programs as the role of internal auditors today extends well beyond the traditional focus on controls and guides business planning, decision-making, and performance."
