Achieving an effective ethics and compliance program requires more than simply adding rules and additional layers of controls. There must be an integrated effort that aligns financial and compliance requirements with the organization’s mission and values. The steps you take as a compliance professional should not be in isolation of your organization’s larger business objectives but in support of them.

Along with aligning with organizational goals, your compliance program can compound its impact by focusing on industry best practices that maximize efforts. This section will highlight the latest best practices in the use of technology, program automation and industry benchmarks to amplify the impact of key compliance program elements.

I scored 100%, which isn't surprising as I'm in the data breach profession. I will say the 5-minute quiz is valuable for all organizations and well thought through regarding exposing a lot of the vulnerabilities organizations face today.

Surprised I didn't score 100%. An excellent trigger for further studies and training for organizations. Nothing should be taken for granted. Many thanks!

This quiz was eye-opening - I was already aware of issues regarding phishing scams, downloads, and so on, but it really reminded me to pay attention to the little things that might not be so obvious such as unauthorized physical access to a work space or paper document security.

Emphasizing the technical vs. physical aspects of cyber security was helpful to me, I think that we tend to think of it as all technical.

After taking the Cyber Security quiz, I realize that while I have an understanding of the concept, I still have more to learn about being safe on the web at work. Although I haven't downloaded anything to my work laptop, I now know that I have a false sense of security as it relates to using it. I plan to take a more proactive role in making sure I am that I use safe practices using my work equipment in the future.
