I have taken over the functional lead of the user group "Governance, Risk, Compliance in IT" at Softwareforen Leipzig. The user group offers a platform to discuss the different components of GRC was well as to share good practices and experiences which were made in companies. The user group is targeted at subject matter experts from companies which develop, customize and/or run software. The next meeting of the GRC user group will take place on November 26./27. in Leipzig, Germany. More information can be found at the user group's website.
