Today's organizations face a litany of operational challenges in the modern digital business world. Maintaining compliance requires a mixture of technology, effective and efficient processes and skilled, informed people.
In today's complex regulatory environment, government and industry bodies frequently make changes to laws, regulations and industry requirements. From both risk and regulatory compliance perspectives, organizations are compelled to establish processes for identifying regulatory changes and implementing measures to maintain compliance. With the magnitude and volume of regulatory requirements, many organizations are ill-equipped to confidently identify, prioritize and respond to issues that could impact the organization.
Departments, business owners or team leads often create their own unique ways to address policies and regulatory obligations required to run their organizations. The resulting proliferation of spreadsheets, emails and data repositories spread across the network contributes to a lack of coordination and accountability among the many different stakeholders.
Many times, different policies and regulations require business units to provide control attestations that are the same or similar across multiple compliance initiatives. As priorities change and resources stretch, staff begins to tune out and ignore these compliance requests, which further exposes the organization to increased risk of fines and penalties due to non-compliance.
These disconnected processes impact the organization’s productivity as team members spend time chasing down information to meet various organizational policy and reporting requirements. Ultimately, these inefficient processes steal valuable resources away from the strategic initiatives that are critical to growing and sustaining the business.
Your current approach to meeting regulatory and corporate compliance obligations is overwhelming internal resources, and there is no way to keep up the pace of regulatory change. How do you respond when executives ask for compliance updates? How difficult is it to provide them the visibility they require, and can it be provided quickly and consistently? By consolidating regulatory data into a centralized repository and establishing a sustainable and consistent process for managing regulatory change, you can quickly and accurately comply with your regulatory obligations. And because you’ve consolidated your compliance efforts, you can now provide the executive team with a complete picture of the state of compliance across the organization in real time.
