Thinking Forward: Policy Management for 2024 & Beyond

Last Updated: February 13, 2024

Going into 2024, Policy Management and compliance adherence are two topics within your organization that are more important than ever. The regulatory landscape has continued to evolve and seemingly brings more changes by the day. To effectively embrace a risk-based approach, your organization needs to stay on top of all these moving pieces and ensure connectivity of policies to risks across departments. While it may seem like a never-ending cycle, we have four areas of focus to help your policy management program thrive going into the new year.

Successful Policy Management Programs Focus On:

Increased Accountability & Consistency

A centralized policy management system assigns responsibility for policy adherence, fostering a culture of accountability throughout the organization. Consistency is achieved by ensuring that all staff members have access to the latest versions of policies, reducing misunderstandings or deviations from established guidelines. If your policy management program is fragmented across different systems, the likelihood of non-compliance will significantly increase, opening the door for operational inefficiencies, increased risks, and reputational damage.

Improve Effective Risk Management

By mapping policies to potential risks, your organization can identify areas of vulnerability and establish proactive measures for mitigations. Integration with your enterprise risk processes ensures that policies are tailored to address specific threats and vulnerabilities the business may have. As the scope of your policy program widens over time, a risk-based approach will allow you to mitigate and delegate resources to address any specific policy risks in order of the criticality it presents to the business.
