When: Thursday, August 6, 2009, 11:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. EDT

Compliance is often a daunting challenge for organizations as they are faced with a growing mountain of regulatory obligations. These obligations include: ethics, sales practices, privacy, security, industry oversight, human resources, corporate governance, manufacturing practices, work force, public safety, environmental factors, critical infrastructure protection/homeland security, and business continuity regulations. In the past, organizations tackled compliance as islands of projects scattered throughout the organization, leading to inconsistent approaches and a duplication of efforts. However, in the new era of heightened risk management, executives are expected to do an even more thorough job of ensuring that compliance activities are sound, reliable and repeatable.

Join Michael Rasmussen, president of Corporate Integrity and renowned risk and compliance advisor, along with John Kelly, director of product marketing at OpenPages, as they discuss real world examples of how organizations can get the most out of their compliance programs. In this webinar, attendees will learn how to:

-- Achieve best practices in effective compliance programs

-- Use best practices as an organizing principal to drive consistency into an enterprise compliance effort

-- Align compliance activities with how they will be judged by regulators themselves

-- Mirror the success that OpenPages customers have experienced from using the OpenPages Platform to build more efficient compliance programs
