Good programs are individually tailored to each organization and their needs.Recently, the standards for effective compliance and ethics programs have changed. Chiefly, the new guidelines have called for companies to step up compliance programs with respect to criminal conduct. The amendments took effect on November 1, 2010.In light of these changes, companies should assess the framework and efficiency of their compliance and ethics programs.The Knowledge Group has assembled a panel of speaker experts and thought leaders to help walk you through the fundamentals of compliance and ethics program in the 2010-2011 paradigm.

- November 2010 Amendments to the Federal Sentencing Guidelines (FSG) and Dodd-Frank Act establish a “new context” for management and boards to consider compliance, risk, and ethics programs. (Amendments reinforce selected prior guidelines, and establish new procedures).
- Notably, structural changes to the role of the chief compliance officer indicate an increased emphasis on the independence of the compliance and ethics function in organizations.
- Beyond (and inspired by) this regulatory-driven change, leading organizations should consider and Enterprise Approach to compliance.
- Elements of Enterprise Approach start with the Board and Senior Management – Overall risk assessment (how to identify/plan; who’s responsible), specific role of Board, specific role of management, specific role of chief compliance officer.
