Building Bullet-Proof Policy Programs for Today’s Complex Business Environment
Featuring Forrester Research (60 mins)
The intricacies of business and frequency of regulatory change continue to drive more consolidated corporate compliance programs, but highly specialized rules also require distributed process and control experts. In such complex environments, compliance officers are finding success in delivering centralized guidance as well as integrated technologies that meet the diverse policy needs of the various parts of their organization.
In this complimentary webinar featuring Forrester’s Chris McClean, you’ll learn how the viability of your corporate policy infrastructure can dictate compliance success in a complex business environment. Chris will explain the “red flags” of an ineffective policy program and how a federated policy program can protect your organization. Chris will be joined by The Network’s Jimmy Lin, who will show you how collaborative policy programs and engaging training programs are intersecting to provide more value in a shorter time span.
