The Compliance Journey - Making Compliance Sustainable 

KPMG's first paper in this series, The Compliance Journey: Balancing Risk and Controls with Performance Improvement, considered how organizations are transforming their controls so that they are embedded in the business and how compliance can enable performance improvement. This document continues that discussion with a focus on ongoing compliance. It describes how organizations' efforts to sustain compliance can progress along four states of compliance to ultimately reduce both risk and cost.
