Organizations today operate in a field of ethical, social, regulatory, and legal landmines. The daily headlines reveal an abundance of organizations that fail to comply with regulatory obligations. Corporate ethics is measured by what a corporation does and does not do when it thinks it can get away with something. Compliance and ethics management ultimately defines, manages, maintains, and monitors corporate integrity. The era of artificial intelligence is also introducing new compliance and ethics challenges as well as opportunities.
Compliance is not easy. Today’s organization is dynamic and constantly changing. The modern organization changes by the minute when new employees start, the business enters new markets, new facilities are opened, new contracts with agents are created, new products are introduced, new business partner relationships are established, new laws are put in place, regulations are changed, and the risk environment shifts impacting how business is conducted overall.
Yesterday’s compliance program no longer works. Boards desire a deeper understanding of how the organization addresses compliance, whether its activities are effective, and how they enhance shareholder value and provide assurance of the organization’s integrity. Oversight demands are rapidly changing the role of the compliance department to an active, independent program that can manage and monitor compliance from the top down. The breadth and depth of compliance bearing down on companies today requires a robust compliance program operating in the context of integrated processes and information. This includes compliance to new areas like artificial intelligence, but also how to leverage artificial intelligence to make compliance more efficient, effective, and agil.
To stay competitive, organizations need a cohesive, integrated strategy and processes for compliance supported by a structured information and technology architecture. This is compliance management by design.
This workshop aims to provide a blueprint for attendees on effective compliance management in a dynamic business, regulatory, and risk environment. Attendees will learn compliance management strategies and processes that can be applied across the organization at an enterprise or department level.
