Integrated Assurance is poised to be the next level in terms of capability level for GRC.  Assurance is supposed to help see through the silos of an organisation, but what if internal Assurance providers are in silos and disjointed.

Integrated assurance helps drive a balanced focus across compliance + risk + quality (not just from the perspective of relationships between assurance providers).  In the speakers own experience, the issue most often seen is too strong an emphasis on Risk Management for example, on the assumption that Compliance will then just take care of itself if one is managing the risk controls effectively.

In the talk the audience is going to be looking at how getting everyone to align with an appropriate set of integrated controls will support compliance, risk and quality in a more balanced and pragmatic way.
