Compliance 

«Your group’s reputation will be measured by tomorrow’s standards on what you are doing today»

 

Nowadays, together with new technologies, speed of communication as well as deep societal changes, the regulatory environment is becoming increasingly complex. Addressing this fast-evolving regulatory environment has become a priority for boardrooms, leading to one key question: how to protect efficiently the Corporation and its employees against the risk of noncompliance? What are the best industry standards to not only meet specific regulations but also societal expectations?
