Compliance Transformation – more than rules and laws!
The days of compliance officers worrying only about the laws and rules are long gone.
Whilst that knowledge and an understanding of the business remain vital, increasingly they will appear alongside a need to be able to work with technology.
Compliance officers of today and tomorrow will require new skillsets in the world of data and ever developing technology, and they must be able to adjust to more modern, agile working methodologies.
At Aspida, our own “horizon scanning” identified this trend several years ago at which time we commenced our development of a GRC platform, Resolver by Aspida, and at the same time launched an innovative trainee compliance consultant programme that focussed on the wider skills, and not just the technical and business knowledge that we believed risk & compliance professionals of the future would require.
The training programme is going from strength to strength and now focuses on Cyber and finding the next Chief Information Security Officer as well as future Compliance Officers and MLROs.
Having launched Resolver by Aspida and commencing the intake of our year 3 trainees we are delighted at the transformation of the compliance function that we are already a key part of.

On 15th July 2021, the Commission issued its report on the thematic review on the reporting of suspicion of money laundering or terrorist financing. The thematic review comes after the Commission identified that some firms did not have effective policies, procedures and controls for the timely reporting of suspicion through their supervision process.
