The Enron trial starts January 30...have your organization's executives been speaking with you more about compliance as a result?
The Enron scandal prompted Sarbanes-Oxley, and all government compliance agencies have since been more diligent in pursuing actions against companies for wrong-doing in a wide range of areas; the FTC most noticeably with many actions against organizations in the past few years. Many organizations who are not even public companies have decided to comply with Sarbanes-Oxley edicts to be on the safe side.
Has the Enron trial, or the FTC actions, or even buzz about Sarbanes-Oxley, gotten the attention of your highest business leaders? What do you tell them about compliance? Do they ask you for advice? Do you communicate with them, and your corporate legal counsel, regularly?
