Quality Assurance plays a critical role in Managing Risk and Compliance – Why, What and How? – HIPPA, SOX, and Other Regulations

Risk Management and Quality Assurance are prerequisites for the execution of projects in any type of organization, but are especially important for those organizations whose projects also include legal or regulatory compliance activities such as HIPPA or Sarbanes-Oxley.   Developing an effective strategy to plan and execute compliance activities is crucial to project success for these types of organizations and to the success of the organizations overall.

Shrini Keskar will present a set of approaches and discuss a set of questions that executives, Quality Managers, Department Leaders and Project Managers can ask in order to properly assess the level of regulatory compliance within their organizations for their IT systems, as well as their project management, operational and financial activities.  Topics discussed will include:

· How and why IT systems play a significant role in regulatory compliance

· The risks of lack of compliance

· How to gauge compliance

· Program steps to ensure compliance

· Questions to ask regarding compliance

· How compliance can turn into a strategic asset and market differentiator

  • How quality assurance is a key driver in achieving organizational compliance success
