Post 2008: Tsunami of Regulations

The current regulatory environment is ever more complex for businesses worldwide with regulations ranging from data privacy to Labor Laws. Keeping up with these regulations and the subsequent silos of amorphous data created by disconnected business functions, manual processes, and lack of automation tools can lead to both financial loss and reputation damage for enterprises. Alleviating compliance management burdens with compliance management software enables organizations to stay on top of regulations while creating a seamless collaboration with other functions such as legal, finance, IT, etc.

According to the Cost of Compliance 2017 Report, Thomson Reuters captured 52,506 regulatory alerts from over 750 regulatory bodies averaging more than 200 updates a day. In-house counsels who are abreast with the current regulations and its impact on the business are able to minimize risks of penalties and save the interest of the company. Agile CCOs and GCs follow a proactive approach towards risk-reduction and risk mitigation within their organization by implementing risk management software to automate and streamline their compliance functions.
