Dr. Arthur F. Kirk, Jr.

I am not going to argue that a four-year college education isn't expensive. It is. I won't argue that its return on investment makes it worthwhile, although it surely does. I also cannot argue that increasing the number of administrators doesn't increase the cost of a higher education. It does.

I help make it safe for others to open up and tell the truth. I use humor to help deal with tough subjects and shameful emotions. I have the strength to talk about things that others do NOT want to talk about.

Regulators and other agencies need systems that are not only as fast as HFT trading platforms but are also smarter, sniffing out and alerting the authorities as and when something anomalous is happening rather than after the fact.

Compliance has become a checklist that doesn't align quite right with the dark underground of highly motivated, skilled attackers. That's where security comes in - something security practitioners should be doing more of.

U.S.-EU Trade Negotiations Are a Rare Opportunity for the U.S. to Rein in the EU's Regulatory Reach

Smaller U.S. firms competing locally also enjoy an edge over domestic, export-oriented competitors who are forced to bear the costs of producing to higher EU standards. But why would the EU agree to give up its unilateral ability to set global standards in any trade negotiation?

The award of a federal government contract is contingent upon a laundry list of complex, lengthy, substantial assurances. Through those assurances, i.e. regulations, the USG has the leverage to shape corporate policy and is doing so quite purposefully for human trafficking.

We cannot lose sight of the reason for compliance and the "spirit" in which it exists. But we need to recognize that we need a new way to maintain the regulatory spirit and discard those ideas that are no longer relevant in a world of Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, blogging, social media, posts, 'likes', endorsements, comments and opinions, all of which appear in real-time.

While we know and recognize Indiana University as a learning institution capable of providing an excellent education, we must accept that Indiana University is also an employer only willing to provide to their employees just that which they can get away with.

Engagement and Compliance in the Classroom. They Aren't the Same!

I've come to understand that the term "engagement" needs to be unpacked before addressing issues of management in the classroom. If you ask an educator, "What does engagement look like?" responses will surely vary.

There is a clear role for the Treasury, and senators should use today's hearing to clarify it. If the Treasury has a responsibility to coordinate and ensure regulatory oversight of U.S. financial institutions, then what is it doing to ensure financial regulators provide stronger oversight?

Craig Zobel's Compliance may be the creepiest movie of the year. It has no physical violence, no sex, barely even a raised voice -- and yet it burrows into your brain and keeps burrowing, the longer you watch.

Compliance Is Not Leadership

John Friedman | Posted 09.30.2012 | Business
John Friedman

It does not qualify as leadership when an organization is satisfied at being among the best (or is the best) at meeting the minimum standards. Relying on the failure or malfeasance of others in your space is not a valid business model.
