Executive Tips to Modernize Your Compliance Program


Recorded:    August 27 | 2020      Watch Now!

Under the weight of new and changing regulations around the world, many organizations struggle to achieve compliance. They often lack a holistic view of their compliance profile and face increasing challenges due to digital transformation. Chief Compliance Officers who take a top-down approach are often met with resistance, but a successful program requires management to actively participate, not just sign off.

Organizations can no longer afford to apply check-the-box approaches to compliance. Executive management must take a variety of actions to demonstrate leadership and commitment to the company’s compliance management program. On this CPE accredited webinar our panel of experts will discuss the current compliance landscape and challenges facing today's organizations, and they will address best practices to modernize your compliance program, including how to:

  • Use a risk-based approach to meet regulatory demands.
  • Employ digital transformation in the management of compliance obligations.
  • Understand the impacts of regulatory changes and minimize resource-intensive manual processes.
  • Get buy-in from other departments and create a working group of stakeholders to develop and improve your compliance program.



colin whittakerColin Whittaker, PCI Industry Alumni, Founder and Director Informed Risk Decisions Ltd. Colin has been instrumental in driving forward a risk and security strategy for payments over the last 15 years since he retired from the military in 2001, and took up the role of Head of Security at APACS. Whilst there he was one of the first people to be elected to the PCI SSC Board of Advisors where he was always keen to try and promote the differences in threat between Europe and UK, and the US. Since that election he hasn't moved far from the PCI domain. In 2010 he moved to Visa Europe and became the Vice President Payment System Risk with responsibilities for designing and operating the Visa Europe PCI compliance strategy for European merchants and service providers. He was also responsible for coordinating Visa Europe's approach to cardholder data breaches in Europe, and for the changes to the Visa Europe Compliance strategy through the creation of the Technology Innovation Programme which gave the very first PCI DSS compliance relief for EMV chip accepting merchants. In 2015 he went independent and currently provides cyber security risk consultancy services to a wide range of public and private companies. Colin has presented on Information Security at major events around the world, and has published a number of papers on security.
