Why Corporate Governance?
In simple terms, corporate governance is the initiatives and related processes, procedures in which corporations are controlled and run. Effective governance structure allows a business to run efficiently, with ethical practices, and desire for long-term success, to both employees and shareholders. Corporate governance gained widespread adoption following the early 2000 financial debacles in the United States, from both businesses, and the accounting firms that audited them. The advent of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 ignited the corporate governance torch, and it burns stronger and brighter than ever before. In a global economy with many complexities challenging businesses, the need for a solid corporate governance foundation has never been greater.
Corporate Governance and Regulatory Compliance Solutions
Regulations. Standards. Frameworks. Rulings. The global business climate is awash in such terms, forcing businesses to spend untold resources – both time and money – for meeting demanding mandates. And it can be challenging, no question about it, so look to the experts at FLANK, proven corporate governance consultants offering the following services:
Board Operations and Oversight
Is your senior management structure functioning as it should? Do you have well-defined job roles and responsibilities within your organization? Are key stakeholders involved in driving long-term growth and strategy for the businesses? These are just a few of the literally dozens of core areas FLANK examines when performing corporate governance consulting for our valued clients. Regulations and compliance are at an all-time high, yet it’s just as important to have the fundamentals in place for your business – i.e. – the right people in the right positions, a company built on ethics, and one that can sustain changes in the marketplace.
Putting profits ahead of people and making business decisions based purely on financial gains is a not a winning formula. Rather, having high ethical standards with clearly-defined governing principles is one of the biggest keys to success for any business, regardless of industry, size, or location. Corporate ethics has a wide and deep reach, touching all employees – not just senior management – thus it’s important to put in place initiatives that speak to the good of the company.
For example, do you offer diversity and inclusion training? What about security awareness and general InfoSec training? Does your company sponsor and/or promote community outreach, working with non-profits, and other entities? Do you provide adequate resources for employees when it comes to healthcare, support in times of needs? Most of all, do you practice what you preach? FLANK has years of experience in helping businesses build a company with corporate ethics that truly stand out, so contact us today to learn more.
Risk and Assurance
Assessing risk is a key element of good corporate governance, which ultimately means performing an annual risk assessment for your business. With a wide-range of risk categories available for use, scoping becomes a critical issue for such an exercise. Risks are everywhere today – information security risks, market risks, currency risks, and more – in fact, there are approximately sixteen different types of risks that can be evaluated against an organization’s operations. I.T. risks are some of the most common types of concerns that are assessed, but with so many other categories to look at, you’ll need an experienced risk advisory firm assisting you, and that’s exactly what FLANK offers.
InfoSec Policy Creation
The framework of any good system of internal controls is documentation, no question about it. After all, well-written and executed information security policies and procedures (i.e., dispensed to and acknowledged by employees) lay the foundation for an organization’s actions – the procedures and processes used for running an effective and successful organization. The problem, however, is that a large number of entities have inadequate documentation – missing, old, and poorly written information security policies and procedures. We can change that and we want to change that, and now. As the world’s leading provider of information security policy templated and toolkits, FLANK can save your business hundreds of hours and thousands of dollars on critical InfoSec policy development.
