After finishing another year we now embark on 2018 — and another yearly edition of trend predictions. In this episode Eric talks about a couple of key compliance risk topics that organizations will want to think about as they plan out their new year, including some significant changes that will be happening soon. We also discuss some of the new guidance we have seen at the end of the year and the possibility of new guidance as the new year progresses. Finally, Eric also discusses how to balance the rhetoric about deregulation with the realities of continued enforcement and how compliance professionals can adapt a business case argument to change up the the discussion around compliance and ethics. Happy New Year!
