A compliance program has never been more crucial to a company’s success and management of risk. Compliance programs are comprised of internal policies and procedures created in order to meet standards set by laws and regulations and to assure that a company is following the rules. Once thought to be somewhat of a “low priority” aspect of business (Priority #1: making money, of course).
However, with increased regulations in various industries leading to greater exposure to lawsuits and government investigations, today it is imperative that a company have an appropriate compliance program in place. That program must be legally effective, properly implemented, and consistently enforced internally.
