A few weeks ago, Compliance Week and Seton Hall School of Law published an article that discussed the skills necessary to be a successful compliance officer. For those in the industry, it comes as no surprise that CCOs and compliance officers are increasingly expected to have a multi-disciplinary background. Today’s CCO must be part accountant, auditor, IT professional, lawyer, strategist, writer, leader, communicator, and more. The reason is the nature of the job. Compliance touches every aspect of a business and therefore compliance officers must be comfortable and competent in many settings.
