To address operational challenges within Compliance, it is critical that companies view the investment and transformation of Compliance as value-generating versus simply “back-end costs”. Viewing Compliance as an investment can help measure its return during ongoing compliance improvements while propelling the organization toward greater effectiveness, sustainability, and efficiencies in its compliance efforts.
Implementing a data-driven approach, investing in strong data governance and controls, maintaining resources, establishing effective controls, and implementing automation will help to create a dynamic and continuously improving Compliance program.
