Companies in the financial sector are subject to ever-increasing regulations. As a result, familiarity with implementation and adherence to laws, regulations and voluntary commitment is becoming more and more complex. For many companies, this presents a major organizational challenge, as breaches have a lasting effect on a company’s reputation and have become an enormous operational risk. Compliance has developed into an essential factor in risk management and should be perceived as a company-wide responsibility. In order to cope with the increasing complexity of national and international regulations in the area of compliance, the availability of consistent and high-quality training for compliance officers is crucial.
The European Certified Compliance Professional (ECCP) aims to provide participants with the required know-how and skills to deal with compliance risks and also covers soft interpersonal skills as communication skills and conflict management.
