GRC Day is a two-day educational event focused on governance, risk, and compliance in the cloud.

For publicly traded and pre-IPO companies, meeting Sarbanes-Oxley compliance requirements can present unique challenges.

Industry leading speakers from NetSuite and Fastpath, as well as NetSuite partners Deloitte, Protiviti, Grant Thornton and Armanino will provide their insights. Additionally, NetSuite customer GoPro will share real world experiences implementing and managing GRC in NetSuite.
