The digitization of almost every aspect of business has completely disrupted the way companies operate, but the rules and regulations that govern business haven’t kept pace. Many of the laws that apply to privacy, communications, copyright, corruption, money laundering, and economic espionage are outdated—written in a time before smartphones, social media, or the Internet existed. As a result, the expectations of organizations are constantly evolving based on developments in the law, and the costs of non-compliance are unpredictable and increasing. Businesses operating across multiple jurisdictions must assess, design and implement costly regulatory compliance and control programs to stay ahead of a multitude of fluid legal frameworks.
