May 25, 2010 – RSA, The Security Division of EMC (NYSE: EMC) and a market leader in security, risk and compliance management, has joined the Open Compliance and Ethics Group (OCEG), a nonprofit organization with a mission to help companies align their governance, risk and compliance (GRC) management activities to drive business performance and promote integrity.

WASHINGTON, D.C. – COMPLIANCE WEEK 2010, May 25, 2010 - 

RSA, The Security Division of EMC (NYSE: EMC) and a market leader in security, risk and compliance management, has joined the Open Compliance and Ethics Group (OCEG), a nonprofit organization with a mission to help companies align their governance, risk and compliance (GRC) management activities to drive business performance and promote integrity.

With the acquisition of Archer Technologies in January 2010, RSA demonstrated its strong commitment to strategic, efficient and sustainable enterprise GRC solutions that span IT, finance, operations and legal business domains. As an OCEG Charter Member, RSA will participate in the Leadership and Technology Councils and help guide the GRC Capability Model, bringing to bear the collective vision of the Archer eGRC Community, whose membership includes more than 3,800 GRC professionals.

"GRC leadership is about involvement and participation in the broad GRC community,” said Michael Rasmussen, OCEG fellow and president of Corporate Integrity LLC. “As an eGRC leader, Archer Technologies had a proven track record of excellence in client relationship and interaction; RSA continues on that path, participating in Compliance Week’s industry recognized GRC conference and contributing to the thought leadership of OCEG, which has the only publicly vetted and collaborated GRC process framework in the Red Book GRC Capability Model—what I refer to as the GRC Rosetta Stone."

According to David Walter, director of eGRC solutions at RSA, “OCEG is a recognized leader in providing GRC standards, guidelines and assessment procedures, and we look forward to offering those resources to our clients. We’re also excited to bring the voice of the Archer Community to the OCEG Technology Council. Our active membership of GRC clients, partners and product experts is helping to shape the vision for enterprise GRC technology innovation. We believe the influence of this Community will provide great value to OCEG.”

As a sponsor of the 2010 Compliance Week Conference this week in Washington, D.C., RSA will highlight its OCEG membership in a discussion led by Walter. Session details include:

Title: GRC Strategy Roadmap: Define Your Vision for a Best-in-Class Governance, Risk and Compliance Program

Time: Tuesday, May 25, 3:45–4:45 p.m. US Eastern
