Welcome to the Great Women in Compliance Podcast, co-hosted by Lisa Fine and Mary Shirley.

While there are a lot of women in the field of Ethics and Compliance, there are fewer women who are in forensic risk analysis.  Today, Lisa speaks with one of the pioneers in this area, Frances McLeod.  Frances is an owner and Founding Partner of Forensic Risk Alliance (FRA) and head of its US offices.  She has worked in many areas – data privacy and GDPR, as a monitor in many different matters for the SEC and DOJ and has focused a lot on sanctions as of late.

Frances shares her experiences in growing FRA and her commitment to diversity in the field, as well as supporting and empowering women in their careers.  She also talks about her experiences in very different monitorships – from being “the data lady” in the City of Ferguson matter, to her recent involvement in the IAV monitorships.

We also discuss what compliance officers should be thinking about as Artificial Intelligence grows in importance for all of us.
