Enterprise Compliance Services

Stronger operations. Competitive advantage. Shareholder value.

Enterprise compliance is a centralized, coordinated approach to ethics and compliance program design and assessment that cuts across multiple business units within an organization. A programmatic approach, built from the top down, enterprise compliance focuses on the specific risks the organization faces.

How we can help

An organization’s overall enterprise compliance program can be based on a number of frameworks, such as the US Federal Sentencing Guidelines and Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission (COSO) and encompasses both operational compliance and legal/regulatory compliance risks. 

Corporate compliance programs can best be thought of as addressing four distinct “layers” of compliance:

  • Involuntary for everyone
  • Involuntary for a particular industry
  • Involuntary for a particular geographic footprint
  •  Voluntary for strategic or operational excellence

To design and implement an effective and efficient enterprise-wide ethics and compliance program, a company needs to create and maintain the people, processes, and technologies for each of the "layers." Deloitte Advisory's understanding of all these issues can help the chief compliance officer, and other compliance stakeholders, to bring greater value to the organization.
