Continuous compliance – Embed compliance throughout your operations

Wednesday, October 23, 2019, 10 A.M. ET
Speaker – Jonathan Brun | CEO Nimonik

*** Note – if you are unable to attend but would like the recording, please let us know by sending an email to jminhas@nimonik.com***

Compliance can be broken down into three key questions:

– What are your requirements?
– What actions are you taking to meet your requirements?
– How do you verify the actions are effective?

These seemingly straightforward questions are surprisingly challenging to implement. Ultimately, your compliance program is only as good as your operational discipline which is only as good as your processes. So the real question is – Do your processes revolve around compliance or is compliance an afterthought?

This webinar will discuss the key steps to embed compliance in your processes. You will walk away with a toolkit on how to achieve continuous compliance across your operations.

Key Take-Aways:
– A structure to move from reactive to preventative compliance
– Tools to identify your processes that may have compliance issues
– How to convince upper management that continuous compliance drives efficiency

We hope you can join us for this webinar!
