It’s compliance week with Jim Gill of Hanzo! Earlier this week, Jim provided 5 best practices for compliance professionals!

In the article (How Regulatory Rulings Shape Compliance Best Practices, available here), Jim asks these questions:

  • How do you ensure that your business complies with every law, rule, and regulation that governs its operations?

  • Specifically, how are you keeping your enterprise data safe?

With that in mind, Jim provides 5 best practices for compliance professionals. Here’s one of them:


Stay current and try to anticipate what’s coming.

The landscape of compliance changes constantly. If you wait until a new regulation is passed to learn about what’s happening in your industry or jurisdiction, you’ll be behind in implementing the practices needed to comply.

It’s also important to stay abreast of topics adjacent to your specific focus: regulatory updates, legal rulings, cybersecurity protections, and data privacy rights to name a few.

So, what are the other 4 of 5 best practices for compliance professionals? You’ll have to read his blog post here to find out! It’s just one more click! 😉
