On-Demand Webinar
Cost of Compliance 2020

Todd Ehret is joined by the authors of our 2020 report, Susannah Hammond and Mike Cowan, for an hour long discussion covering key insights from our global Cost of Compliance 2020 survey. 


This year a tightening of risk and compliance budgets, regulatory and cultural change and the possibility of increasing personal liability all provided evidence of a cyclical turn from the post-financial crisis years. It is too early to tell how COVID-19 will influence that inflexion over the long term, but already regulators are issuing a flurry of revisions to rules, and firms are asking for the postponement of various regulatory initiatives so they can focus on managing events. 

Register to listen to our on-demand webinar interview with the authors of our Cost of Compliance report. As our 2020 survey closed before the global pandemic changed how we operate, this webinar gives you the chance to hear from the experts about how they predict better risk and compliance practice will take shape in the face of continuing uncertainty. 

Listen to the webinar to hear about:

  • Tightening of risk and compliance budgets
  • Regulatory and cultural change impacting the personal liability of senior managers
  • Creating a unified compliance culture
  • Ongoing challenges facing boards and compliance practitioners
  • Identifying good or better practice for managing the continuing uncertainty of COVID-19

The Cost of Compliance 2020 report is also available to download in the resources section.
