Welcome to the Great Women in Compliance Podcast, co-hosted by Lisa Fine and Mary Shirley.

One of the key components of a compliance program is a risk assessment. However, how to develop the right one for your organization is an art, not a science, as is how to best use the findings and report the results. In this episode, Rebecca Walker, one of the founders of Kaplan & Walker LLP, takes a deep dive into the subject.

Rebecca has been in the compliance field for over 20 years and has always been an advocate for a holistic and well-rounded view of compliance. She regularly speaks on many topics, and here, Lisa and Rebecca talk about various aspects of risk assessments, including how to tailor your risk assessment to your organization, or if you know there is a risk, do you need to do an assessment? They also touch on the distinction between risk assessments and program assessments.

Rebecca also talks about the beginning of her career in a large law firm and the challenges of starting her firm in general and as a woman. She recounts a story about her 1st day that illustrates the fear and excitement of starting. See less -
