What Everyone Should Know About Compliance:

Every scandal, fine, and incarceration that dominates the daily news cycle makes the business case for compliance.  Compliance brings a necessary perspective to the C-suite and boardroom that protects the organization, its stakeholders and society.  While best practices and the government may require a compliance program, an organization’s survival could depend on one.
