You are familiar with the US Federal Sentencing Guidelines and have heard about compliance best practices, but wonder: "How in the world am I going to do that?" As a small legal department, the demands are great, resources are scarce, and, often, the businesspeople don't completely understand your role. The Guidelines acknowledge differences between large and small organizations in meeting the requirements for an effective ethics and compliance program. The question is often the “how” of implementation. What are regulators’ expectations for companies with limited resources? What are cost- and time-efficient methods to address constant regulatory scrutiny and change? This program will explore the critical issues for prioritizing with limited resources while regulations continue to increase. This session will also focus on creative strategies to do more with less, such as using risk-based prioritization, tailoring compliance to meet business needs and objectives, and finding third-party vendors to provide support at a reasonable cost.
