Keeping track of 10,000+ of anything is a management nightmare. With ongoing compliance and evolving attacks against vulnerable endpoint devices, getting a handle on managing endpoints becomes more important.
Establishing a culture of integrity, ethics and respect is the number one priority for companies in 2017, according to a new report. In common with the 2015 report, getting an organisation's culture right is the main objective for compliance professionals in the year ahead, with 85 per cent of respondents saying it is one of their three main goals.
However despite this, only 32 per cent of firms indicated that they are planning to undertake a culture or ethics assessment in the next twelve months. In addition, workplace behaviour was rated as the lowest area of risk receiving attention by stakeholders (29 per cent).

Good analysis and benchmarking of hotline data helps organisations answer crucial questions about their ethics and compliance programme, including:
Does our culture support employees who raise concerns?
Are our communications with employees reaching the intended audiences and having the desired effect?
Are our investigations thorough and effective?
Do we need more training?
Do we need to review or update our policies?
Do employees know about our reporting channels?
Comparing internal data year over year to help answer these questions is important. But getting a broader perspective on how your performance matches up to industry norms is critical. This year’s analysis of our EMEA & APAC data from nearly 14,000 ethics and compliance hotline reports revealed key data points that compliance professionals can use to benchmark and assess their programme’s performance, and move toward predictive risk mitigation.
Ethics and compliance officers have many opportunities to leverage the data in their hotline and incident management systems to improve their compliance programmes— and their organisational culture of ethics and respect. This year’s benchmarks point to several opportunities to increase programme effectiveness.
Hotline data that is carefully tracked, reviewed, benchmarked and presented with sufficient context often provides the early warning signs needed to detect, prevent and resolve problems. We at NAVEX Global hope that this report is helpful to your organisation and we welcome any feedback on these findings.
