Five questions on current trends in compliance risk management
When it comes to managing compliance risks, some companies take a decentralized, non-integrated approach. Because while nobody wants to run afoul of regulations, at the same time it can be difficult to understand the importance of enterprise-level consistency, much less centralized oversight, coordination and control. But that may be changing. Following a particularly robust decade of regulatory rulemaking and enforcement, many organizations are exposed to compliance risks in ways that are unfamiliar — and anxiety-inducing. Noncompliance can be costly, can expose the organization to reputational risks, or, worse, can jeopardize the future of an entire business unit or organization. An aligned, integrated approach to compliance can protect against these outcomes and can even contribute directly to shareholder value.
