As regulators step up their civil and criminal enforcement regimes, the cost of non-compliance to businesses can be severe.
The penalties for failing to have adequate legal and regulatory controls in place include multi-million pound fines for civil breaches and imprisonment for criminal convictions brought by regulators including the Serious Fraud Office (SFO), Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) and the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA).
Investigations by regulators can also severely impact your brand and your reputation in the marketplace.
