2020 DOJ Compliance Guidance Update for Corporate Programs

Everything you need to know about the 2020 DOJ Compliance Guidance update, and how it impacts your compliance program

Early in June 2020, the Department of Justice updated its Evaluation of Corporate Compliance Programs. While the DOJ updates came as a surprise to the compliance world, they should be welcome news for every Chief Compliance Officer (CCO), compliance professional, and corporate compliance program in the US and beyond. The reason is simple: the DOJ has now articulated what both the business and compliance communities have been learning–that compliance is a business process, and as a process, it can be measured, managed, and most importantly, improved. This whitepaper from Tom Fox explores the 2020 Update and where it takes corporate compliance programs in this year and beyond.
