Lessons from the Trenches: Developing a Compliance Program to Meet Regulator Expectations

Webinar Replay

Our panel of compliance experts discussed how compliance programs can be designed to meet the evolving regulatory expectations from the DOJ and SEC.

Increasingly evolving regulatory expectations are making it difficult for companies to build a program that can evolve as quickly as regulators would like. However, regulators are still expecting companies to implement compliance programs that assess risk on an ongoing basis, use data analytics, and incorporate learnings back into the program. 

How can you ensure that your compliance program is meeting evolving regulatory expectations?

Hear from an expert panel composed of a former prosecutor at the DOJ, former in-house compliance counsel, and outside advisors on how to design and implement a compliance program that meets the evolving expectations of regulators.
