Your ethics and compliance program is an ecosystem of moving parts. New laws and regulations, new lines of business, new geographies, mergers and acquisitions become part of a growing enterprise that your compliance ecosystem must support.

This section will give you the expert advice and programmatic best practices to ensure the first steps you take to develop your program are in the right direction.

Companies know that having a cyber security program in place is critical to decreasing the risk of a data breach and responding to one if and when it happens. But some companies continue to put themselves at risk by failing to put in the time, money and effort to develop and implement a cyber security program.

Ethics and compliance plays a key role in all components of a cyber security program, and companies should not wait until a cyber security incident has already happened to bring in the CCO. With the unique perspective of understanding individuals’ online behavior, the CCO can focus on human behavior and privacy expectations and help tailor the company’s policy, training, and incident reporting and tracking. Companies that spend the time, money and effort to include these components in their cyber security program can expect to see a better understanding from employees on the role they play in the program’s success and a decrease in cyber security incidents.
