In the Episode, I visit with Dave Lefort, Editor in Chief for Compliance Week. Dave recently wrote “It’s hard to tell whether the age we’re living in is the calm before the storm or if it is the storm. One way or another, we’ll likely get some clarity in the year ahead for CCOs navigating these choppy waters.” I asked him to come on the podcast and discuss his 10 predictions on what will dominate compliance headlines in 2020.

  1. Big Tech in antitrust crosshairs. Is everyone ganging up on big tech?
  2. Deregulation. Is it real or is it Memorex?
  3. Recession worries: Impact on ethics and compliance. Will compliance have to do more with less or less with less?
  4. 2020 elections. How could it impact the regulatory environment heading into 2021?
  5. Protecting whistleblowers. Will Congress step in where the Supreme Court gutted protection? Will Trump’s public berating of the impeachment whistleblower embolden those accused of wrongdoing to retaliate?
  6. Data privacy equation has changed. How so?
  7. GDPR: Waiting for the big one. Which US company will it be?
  8. Regulators will reward good-faith efforts. Is it softening or a refocus?
  9. Ethics and Artificial Intelligence: Trouble ahead? Will Skynet become self-aware?
  10. Supply chains, geopolitical risk, and third parties. If this is such a big problem, where are the resources to fix it?
