PwC's Barbara Kipp talks about ethics and compliance, the importance of properly diagnosing risks, and ensuring the proper controls to address compliance issues.

A strong compliance program is an indication of the overall health of a company, and makes you much more attractive to customers, investors, and partners.

It is important that companies have the appropriate framework and governance in place, to diagnose and address ethical and compliance risks, and to ensure the business and its partners can manage these risks in a comprehensive and cost effective manner. If not, they can face regulatory actions, fines and damage their reputation. A comprehensive compliance program is critical to drive ultimate success of your business. Unfortunately, there is no one size fits all solution; it has to be tailored to fit your organization’s needs.
