[ClickPress, Mon Apr 02 2007] ControlPath Inc., a leading developer of automated compliance and risk management solutions, announced today a series of educational webinars about the critical issues facing organizations struggling to comply with today’s wide range of state and federal regulations.

The company also announced that it will be exhibiting and sponsoring two key shows in April: On April 17, the Information Systems Audit and Control Association (ISACA) Spring Conference in Los Angeles, which is Southern California’s leading conference for IT governance, control, security and assurance; and the North America Computer Audit, Control and Security (CACS) Conference, April 24-25, in Grapevine, Texas.

With businesses spending some $15.5 billion in compliance-related activities (according to AMR Research) the April and May webinars will address the compliance challenges that face IT organizations complying with regulations such as the Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOX), Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA), Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS), and Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA).

The first program will cover today’s top five compliance challenges, what the path to compliance looks like, and how automated compliance management can cut compliance costs out of what has been a manual and costly effort.

In addition to an overview of compliance, the ControlPath webinars will demonstrate how financial institutions can reduce vendor risk by implementing the BITS Shared Assessments SIG/AUP Standards. Deployment of the BITS standards gives organizations the power to better understand overall risks by leveraging risk data captured through standardized vendor assessments.

The webinar schedule:
• April 12, 4 pm ET – Compliance Challenges and Introduction to ControlPath
• April 26, 12 pm ET – Financial Institution Vendor Management- Implementing the BITS Shared Assessments SIG/AUP Standards to Reduce Vendor Risk
• May 10, 1 pm ET – Compliance Challenges and Introduction to ControlPath
• May 22, 2 pm ET – Financial Institution Vendor Management- Implementing the BITS Shared Assessments SIG/AUP Standards to Reduce Vendor Risk

“Education about compliance, automation, and ways to make the compliance process more efficient is crucial as organizations aggressively seek ways to cut their compliance costs,” said Chris Poelma, CEO, ControlPath. “The response to the initial slate of webinars, along with the response from prospective customers, validate ControlPath’s value in automating the compliance process. Attending and sponsoring the ISACA conferences in April will enable us to further communicate our thought leadership position within the industry.”
