Read Frequently Asked Questions

Enterprise risk management has become the new buzz word for business. This webinar training will highlight best practices for members of the board of directors and senior management for implementing and maintaining an enterprise risk management program. It will provide advice on what regulators look for in proper governance procedures and documents. The session will follow the creation of a risk management program and explain how the program should be managed by the company’s board.

Why Should You Attend:

Regulatory agencies are taking a harder look at business operations. Compliance has become a key element in business operations. Federal Sentencing Guidelines contain specific provisions which can benefit a business that has the proper compliance structure and procedures in place despite some pitfalls. Businesses are also under attack from internet hackers and others seeking either to do reputational damage or to steal their confidential and proprietary information.

Clearly, risk management has become a global need for companies which should adopt an enterprise-wide risk management and compliance program ensuring that from the board of directors and top management to each department a cohesive and unified structure is in place to ensure compliance and manage the risks. This webinar will review the need for, the structure of, and the operation of an ERM program.

Topic Background:

There is an alphabet soup of regulatory agencies, some with overlapping jurisdiction. From the SEC and DoJ to the OCC, FTC, FAA and more, our federal government regulates almost every aspect of our business. States have joined in as well with many of the same concerns as the federal agencies. In the wake of Enron, WorldCom, AIG, Lehman Brothers, and Bernie Madoff, federal courts and prosecutors have recognized that preventative compliance is a key to successful business operations. For this reason, the Federal Sentencing Guidelines include provisions which recognize a validly formed and operated compliance program can mitigate the penalties imposed on the business when there is individual wrongdoing. While we should expect all to comply with the law and regulations, we want businesses to self-enforce compliance through their internal programs.

In addition, there are regular reports of hacking attacks, which seem to increase in frequency and volume. These thefts of confidential and sometimes proprietary information can lead to both law suits and reputational damage. Sony Entertainment is the most recent and seemingly most embarrassing to date.

While risk management and compliance programs have been around for some time, making them meaningful now means making them enterprise-wide and coordinating compliance and information-sharing across the company. No longer is it proper to segregate compliance functions keeping one department in the dark about what concerns other departments. ERM or enterprise risk management is now the hallmark of a good compliance program.
