Corporate Governance Resource Center

Today’s regulatory landscape and competitive business environment presents corporate directors and executives with an increasingly complex set of responsibilities. The need for timely, relevant insights into the latest corporate governance trends is essential to being able to succeed within this dynamic.

Improving transparency and risk oversight
To address the needs of various stakeholders, leading boards must develop governance practices that properly balance strategy, risk and other emerging issues. And, they must do this in a manner that ensures an appropriate level of transparency with regulators, legislators, investors and the general public seeking greater corporate accountability.

The issues boards must consider in executing their duties are considerable, including:

  • Regulations and financial reporting
  • Business strategy and risk
  • Executive compensation models
  • Fraud
  • Cybersecurity
  • Sustainability
  • CEO succession planning
  • Information flow and process between the board and stakeholders, including management
