In this podcast series we explore the white paper in depth and provide the Chief Compliance Officer and compliance practitioner with succinct and practical tips for educating, dealing with and reporting to a Board of Directors. In Episode 1 we introduce the topic of what’s the tone at the very top of your organization. Some of the highlights from the podcast include:
