In the financial services sector, compliance departments work to meet key regulatory objectives to protect investors and ensure that markets are fair, efficient and transparent.

Lessons learned from the DevOps cultural movement can be applied in a new approach: CompOps.

This webinar will discuss the challenges of building a compliance-driven cultural organization. Speakers will share the lessons learned from building a CompOps program. These will include how to:

  • Demonstrate adherence to laws and regulations
  • Speed response times when audits or litigation occur
  • Reduce the risk of fines and penalties
  • Improve  business efficiencies
  • Reduce administrative costs
  • Get control over critical records
