What is governance and compliance?

Governance, risk management and compliance are increasingly being prioritized within organizations. The corporate misdemeanors of the recent past, and the resulting fines, refunds and brand damage have driven organizations and government agencies to address the “loose governance” standards of the past.

As a result, organizations are much more aware of potential risks, and many have made good governance a strategic priority. At this same time, governments are imposing more laws and rules to tighten up business practices, such as The European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA).
