DETERMINING FACTORS, DESIRABLE PERSONALITY TRAITS AND SKILLSETS
By definition, a compliance officer ensures the organization is in compliance with its outside regulatory and legal requirements as well as internal policies and bylaws. The Compliance Officer’s duty to their employer is to work with management and staff to identify and manage regulatory risk.
Ideally, every business decision made at the organization should be in compliance with all regulatory and legal requirements and follow established internal policies. However, humans being humans, some hastily made decisions may stray from that compliance standard. In the event of a regulatory breach, it’s important for the Compliance Officer to have and apply appropriate disciplinary measures to avoid a future recurrence.
