And regulations have seemed to multiply over time. All public companies that trade on U.S. markets must comply with the Sarbanes-Oxley Act. Financial services firms in Europe must comply with the Basel II accord. U.S. financial services companies face security requirements outlined in the USA Patriot Act.
The list is long and the regulations complex, regardless of your industry. Failure to comply now bears more serious penalties than ever, including the loss of corporate integrity and shareholder confidence.
