Governance risk and compliance was once something of an afterthought for many organisations but in recent years the landscapes of regulation and risk have been transformed. Companies can no longer afford to penny-pinch in this area and many are, more than ever, investing in the right skills.

The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) deadline is approaching, a legislative burden that will change the way companies worldwide deal with data management. Changing attitudes to personal data mean that the hefty fines for non-compliance are nothing compared with the business that could be lost if rights are not fiercely protected through proper governance.

While it’s had far less press than GDPR, the Markets in Financial Instruments Directive (Mifid II) is an equally extensive piece of legislation that’s having a profound impact on the financial sector. Comprised of more than 1.4 million paragraphs of rules, Mifid II is designed to restore investor confidence following the financial crisis.

Meanwhile, technological threats are increasing with the development of ever more sophisticated and automated malware. In recent years, high-profile third-party data breaches resulting from malware attacks have highlighted the need for strong operational risk management. As a result, specialisation in risk intelligence is going to be in high demand.

Governance risk and compliance now needs to be at the heart of every organisation’s strategy. Across all sectors, demand for the skills and experience needed to mitigate risk is high.
