The KPMG 2021 CCO Survey: Sharing client perspectives on compliance imperatives, explores how CCOs across multiple industries are adapting to these new global trends and evolving risks. It identifies the areas of the compliance program that CCOs believe require enhancement and/or investment, describes how CCOs are expanding the scope of compliance responsibility to embrace new areas of risk, highlights how CCOs perceive the need to invest further in automation and technology, and examines how CCOs are accommodating the shift toward new post-pandemic ways to work. Based on responses from nearly 250 CCOs at some of the largest global organizations, this survey highlights the changes we might expect to see in compliance over the next three years, even as organizations navigate increased regulatory scrutiny, gaps in resources and budgets, and competitive pressures to harness and distill large volumes of data into meaningful analysis.
