Corporate compliance is a staple conversation across all industries. Since data privacy laws have been enforced, businesses must now explain how they collect and utilize user data. The most impactful on the U.S. soil is the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA). That is applicable for companies dealing with data of California-based users. A company can be penalized $7,500 for intentional violations and $100 to $750 per individual. Though it might seem too much, the amount is enormous when you add it all up. So, you must develop compliance strategies to help you stay on the right side of the law. In this article at JD Supra, get to know six compliance strategies.
Compliance Strategies: Definition, Issues, Steps
What Are Compliance Strategies?
According to JD Supra, a compliance strategy is “plan of action that a corporation follows to ensure compliance with state, federal, and international laws and regulations.” A company might have several compliance strategies that are part of corporate compliance.
Issues While Implementing These Strategies
- Rules and regulation change frequently. If you run a multi-national company, you must abide by the laws of each country or state.
- Noncompliance attracts heavy penalties along with reputation loss and litigation costs.
How to Implement Compliance Strategies Seamlessly
- Analyze why you need to implement strategies in the first place.
- Not all laws are applicable to your company. Find out which ones do.
- Compose a transparent strategy for easy implementation. So, your staff might need help understanding heavy corporate jargon. Simplify the terms to help them sync in with the strategies.
- Conduct staff training sessions to successfully follow the strategies.
- Have regular internal audits and discover which areas need to follow the framework.
- Document your data so you can trace any information through data mapping.
