With the fifth anniversary of Doug’s Note fast approaching (and more than 250 posts and 250,000 reads in the rearview mirror), it seemed like a good time to consider where to go from here. Where, as it turns out, was to create a companion blog devoted to governance, risk and compliance, which are among the hottest issues in corporate America these days.
Parker Poe’s GRC Blog reflects the joint contributions of our GRC team, co-led by Jane Lewis-Raymond, former chief compliance officer and general counsel of a large public company, and by me. Together, we provide more than 50 years of experience counseling public and private companies of all shapes and sizes on compliance program design, risk assessment, enterprise risk management, crisis management, remediation and training.
Essential to the blog’s success are the contributions of our larger GRC team, which consists of attorneys whose practices focus on such key areas of corporate compliance as:
- Anti-Bribery & Anti-Corruption
- Antitrust & Consumer Protection
- Criminal & Regulatory White Collar Compliance
- Crisis Management
- Cybersecurity & Data Privacy
- Government Contracting & False Claims Act Compliance
- SEC Reporting & Compliance
- Trade Compliance
Our GRC Blog includes insights on such matters as creating a compliance culture, ensuring compliance with the Federal Sentencing Guidelines and the DOJ’s program evaluation guidance, the interplay of compliance professionals, executive management and boards of directors, balancing GRC goals against the realities of budget and personnel constraints, and a whole lot more. Recent posts include, for example:
- Take-aways from the recent global ransomware attack (click here),
- The board of directors’ role in compliance programs (click here) ,
- Where enforcement may be heading under the Trump administration (click here), and
- The enduring importance of a compliance culture (click here).
We also address more specific topics, such as the NLRB’s position on prohibitions against recorded workplace conversations (click here).
As with Doug’s Note, the posts are short, easily digestible and filled with practice tips and actions steps. Our goal is to help you make sense out of the GRC cacophony, rather than add to the noise.
I hope you’ll take a look.
