Guests-at-a-Glance

Matt Kunkel

👨‍💻 What he does: CEO, LogicGate

💭 Key quote: According to LogicGate's 2020 research report, “88% of CEOs say that enterprise risk management is extremely important to their organization. However, less than half of them say they have an effective ERM program in place in their organization, which can help get ahead of the risks and the threats.”

Mark Tattersall

📦 What he does: VP of Product Management, LogicGate

💭 Key quote: “As the product team, [we] love when we hear from our customers about the smallest or biggest things. Often the best ideas come from our customers; the people who are using the platform every day.”

Kevin Jacobson

💰What he does: CFO, LogicGate

💭 Key quote: Because of LogicGate Risk Cloud™, “all of the business partners that are involved in [the vendor management] process are now spending less of their energy on all the things we spent on the left-hand side of this slide, and they're reinvesting that in more strategic areas for them to do their work.”

GRC Highlights

💻 Agility 2020 was LogicGate’s first-ever virtual user conference. If you missed it this year, don’t sweat it — these clips from LogicGate leadership presentations give you a peek at some of the awesome content. Hang tight; plans for a user conference in 2021 are already underway!

💻 GRC is at a crossroads, says Matt Kunkel, and the number of risks organizations face daily increases at a rapid pace. To thrive in this new paradigm and get ahead of risks and threats, organizational digital transformation strategies need to be executed with ERM today — not years from now.

💻 For Mark Tattersall and his team, their product development is nothing without customer feedback. “Nothing is too small. No request is too big. We love reading it. We read and discuss every single one ... so keep firing away,” said Mark while explaining how to share feedback through the platform.

💻 When Kevin Jacobson wanted to better structure LogicGate’s vendor management approach, the biggest factor — from a financial ROI perspective — was a strong system that could create a more efficient vendor management process and streamline their ability to plug in all the necessary key cross-functional stakeholders. That’s exactly what he got (and more!) with the risk cloud.
