Compliance: the only constant is change

Compliance professionals in all sectors and jurisdictions need to understand where they are positioned in this path and how the critical measures of success are changing. David considers how compliance is at a critical point from which it can either find opportunity, or possibly experience a decline in status, scope and influence. Compliance needs to be aware of the choices it faces and arm itself with the necessary skills and vision.
