TAMPA, FL – January 29, 2018 – Focal Point Data Risk, LLC (Focal Point) and Riskonnect Inc. (Riskonnect), two leaders in the competitive Integrated Risk Management (IRM) space, today announced a strategic partnership that aligns Riskonnect’s best-in-class IRM software solutions with Focal Point’s implementation and risk management consulting services.
Gartner predicts that by 2021, half of large enterprises will use an IRM solution to provide better decision-making capabilities.

Both companies are on the leading-edge of the IRM changes, and together they solve some of the most pressing concerns of today’s business leaders,” said Jannie Wentzel, Focal Point’s eGRC practice leader. “This combined offering, leveraging the best features of two great organizations, allows our clients to benefit from increased risk visibility, better decision making, and streamlined compliance.”
