Has the role changed? Eric thinks it’s a definite yes and discusses three ways this week. First, expectations from stakeholders from the BOD on down are different today. Demands on the compliance function, and expected results, are far greater than they were. Second, the need to divorce any lingering corporate legal duty from some of the important functions of compliance is greater than ever before. We may not be able to serve two masters at all times. Third, along with those challenging expectations comes a higher profile — use it wisely.
