Legislation Updates

The Regulatory Burden Keeps Growing….

Every year, the volume and reach of the regulatory burden grows

The many obligations you have to meet are always changing

Compliance intensity can be overwhelming – hundreds or even thousands of individual obligations

Failing to comply can result in penalties

Most organisations find it impossible to properly identify,
analyse and stay up to date with it all

You Could Try:

Manually scanning regulators’ websites for anything new or changed

Buying an alert service then trying to work out what it all means

Paying a legal firm to do the analysis for you and hoping you understand the result

Creating lists of legislation and requiring managers to certify compliance covering hundreds of pages, ignoring the detail

Getting the vibe of the legislation and developing some policy

Look for a compromise solution that will hopefully “pass muster”, or just ignore it altogether and hope for the best!

These options can be costly, unreliable and consume valuable time.  Even worse, they can leave your organisation, your people, and YOU exposed.

And it all has to be maintained! 

There is a Solution!
