Sarbanes-Oxley, GLB, HIPAA and other regulations make it essential and imperative that organizations, large and small, regardless of size, select a Chief Compliance Officer (CCO) or a Chief Risk Officer (CRO) best suited to the position.
The Board, the CEO and other line and staff executives need to rely on one single source for meaningful information on the company's status on risk and compliance. The impact on company activities and profitability can be impacted by its compliance to regulatory mandates. Development and use of one authoritative entity to assess risk management and compliance strategies and spearhead and coordinate governance, risk management and compliance (GRC) programs on an 'enterprise-wide' basis is essential. To do so, the right person must fill that role.
Selecting an effective CCO/CRO with a broad vision and perspective and with the proper skill set to enable him/her to function in the current 'global' regulatory environment requires that you consider many key factors to ensure the success of the new function.
The skill set needed by this individual goes beyond training and certification and require that an individual have a strong internal compass and the willingness to outline what is required, even when facing financial challenges. The individual must have the ability to communicate the essence and structure behind a good compliance program. With the increase in whistleblowers, ensuring a corporate culture that supports compliance was never more essential.
This webinar with expert speaker Laura Hargraves will provide valuable knowledge on what you need to do to select an 'effective' Compliance Officer who will lead the organization to conceiving, developing and implementing successful GRC programs and providing top level coordinating leadership for governance, risk management and compliance issues across the enterprise.
