Compliance and Risk Management for the Retail Industry
The retail industry is caught in a Catch-22. Retailers generally need to expand both their geographic footprint and technological infrastructure to increase revenue and profit. But, increasing their physical and digital environments invites additional risk, including:
- Additional points of entry for hackers.
- An expanded network of third parties that become extensions of a company and can inadvertently disrupt operations, weaken IT security, or contribute to non-compliance.
- Additional regulatory complexity as every municipality, state, and country carries its own set of building codes, employment laws, and consumer protection regulations.
- Decentralized data, policies, and other critical information.
Managing the new risks and compliance requirements can be an arduous task, if conducted manually; often requiring multiple employees dedicating long hours at extensive cost.
Retail companies need a straightforward, efficient, effective and agile solution to deal with the merging of duplicate risk frameworks, the rollout of advanced technologies, and the implementation of new regulatory guidelines.
