Scandals, government investigations, and damaging lawsuits can destroy a company, and the risks have only increased. The SEC is constantly passing new regulations and the media cycle has become rapid. Even the smallest violation of SEC regulations can devastate a company. The investigation, lawsuit, and scandal that comes from your violations will destroy your company. For years, companies relied on talented public relations teams and extremely experienced lawyers to protect them from issues, but the stakes have become much too high. Companies that truly care about their reputation are having to change their strategy.
Twenty years ago, there were very few compliance officers in existence, but now the field is booming. Most companies have compliance departments that deal with a variety of issues. Compliance departments keep up with every government regulation. They monitor every part of your company to ensure that there are no government violations occurring. Compliance officers also develop company-wide policies that prevent scandals and violations from occurring. A talented compliance team can keep a company running well for years.
