Compliance as a practice is often seen as burden, and automation is one answer to reducing the burden. Organisations are at different levels of maturity in adopting automation in their compliance processes. However, most companies are trying to improve consistency, reduce subjectivity and use some level of tools (software, data and managed services). Best-in class organisations have automated their compliance programs to reduce the burden and cost of compliance and then re-invest those saving into further innovations.
Due diligence and knowing exactly who you are doing business with is crucial to conducting business in today’s interconnected landscape. Using Beneficial Ownership data is key to navigating the regulated business environment. Beneficial Ownership capabilities can identify the corporate hierarchy and verify the identification of customers, vendors and third parties, surfacing any connections that may expose risk to businesses.
Being a good corporate citizen is no longer just about complying with regulations; it’s also about conducting business responsibly. There are rising expectations on businesses to have full disclosure and oversight of their operations. They need to ensure ethical sourcing practices, take responsibility for risk, and promote shareholder value with good corporate citizenship.
Driven by today’s increasingly regulated business environment, supply and compliance functions are more interconnected than ever and utilise similar data. Organisations need a holistic and detailed picture of all their relationships to effectively manage risk and protect corporate reputation.
Compliance is integral to an organisation’s culture, and there has been a distinct shift in this role from “police to partner.” Compliance issues are a key topic in the boardroom, and employees across the business are also expected to take shared accountability for doing the right thing. CCO’s are experiencing the extra burden of trying to maintain an understanding of the evolving regulatory landscape, while also facing close scrutiny from customers and partners, the media, and the wider public.
In this short 'Beyond Regulation' video in association with the International Compliance Association (ICA) and ITN Productions, Dun & Bradstreet's global compliance experts discuss:
- Why compliance is integral to global organisations
- How supply and compliance functions are interconnected
- How data can help organisations conduct business responsibly
- The importance of good data for Beneficial Ownership

Join this webinar to understand:
- The impacts of the GDPR on businesses

Why is there a such gap between what senior-level executives believe about business agility, and what their companies actually embrace? Join us for a webinar to find out why and learn how to help close the gap.
A recent CA-sponsored study on Business Agility throughout the Enterprise revealed that only 12 percent of organizations can claim their whole organization is on the path to business agility --- though more than two-thirds of survey participants agreed that agile organizations are better able to quickly respond to dynamic business conditions.
The survey also finds that improved Business Agility is expected to deliver:
•Better competitive advantage
•Higher customer satisfaction and retention
•Increased employee productivity and retention
•Faster time to act on new opportunities
Yet only 1 in 10 executives said they are leveraging the benefits of agile across their whole organization to achieve speed and responsiveness.
In this webinar, Doug Barth, founder of Gatepoint Research, will walk us through survey to share the following. Where has agility taken hold across organizations and what results can be expected? What departments are on the horizon to adopt agility and why? What are the biggest deterrents to adoption?
To help demystify some of the findings and provide guidance over potential hurdles on the path to business agility, he’ll be joined by Deema Dajani, a Senior Transformation Consultant from CA Technologies. Deema thrives on taking Fortune 500 companies through successful, large-scale agile transformations, and is on the business agility front lines every day working to close the gap.
