In this latest edition of The Compliance Handbook he continues to arm seasoned compliance professionals, and those new to the realm, with the practical, actionable guidance and tools needed to design, create, implement and continually enhance a best practices compliance program.

The "Nuts and Bolts" for Creating a Comprehensive Compliance Plan
The first chapter of this unique work lays out a succinct yet thorough 31-day approach to operationalizing a company's compliance regimen. Beginning with a section on what COVID brought to the compliance landscape, the chapter goes on to methodically outline best practices for everything from establishing policies, procedures and internal controls, to assessing risk, training, handling investigations and more. Each day ends with three key takeaways you can implement at little or no cost.

Understanding Compliance Responsibility Across the Organization
The Compliance Handbook also takes a close look at the role of all professionals with compliance responsibility, from Compliance Officers and Boards of Directors, to Human Resources, to Internal Audit and Internal Controls and Communications and Training professionals.
