"The data out there is troubling, to say the least," said Roy Snell, CEO of the Health Care Compliance Association and Society of Corporate Compliance and Ethics. "A December 2008 survey we conducted with over 600 compliance and ethics professionals revealed a disturbing divergence of trends in compliance and ethics. While 85% of compliance and ethics officers surveyed believed that the current economic crisis increases the risk of a compliance or ethics failure, few thought budgets would rise to meet the challenge. And many expected a budget cut."
The panel of industry experts will discuss the findings of the survey and how companies should act to mitigate the rising risk of wrongdoing in this difficult economy.
