Every day we hear more and more about new regulatory requirements, or changes to current regulatory requirements.
The need for data to meet these requirements is becoming more and more unmanageable.
So how do we plan to meet these requirements? And achieve the challenging due dates for compliance?
Only having 30 minutes available to share some approaches will be a big challenge, but I think I will be able to provide you with a succinct summary of how you need to establish and maintain a governance process in your organization to address changing regulatory requirements.
Doing simple things such as having 1 spokesperson to speak on a company’s behalf, as well as having a robust sounding board team who become the experts of the regulation, are 2 of the starting points I will discuss.
At the end of the presentation, you may have some new ideas to look at how you comply within your own organization.
