There are not �regulated� industries that must preserve records and �unregulated� industries that can discard their records with impunity. Rather, there are heavily regulated industries and less heavily regulated industries. So, all organizations must be compliant to some degree.
This paper examines the current state of regulatory compliance, the impact of non-compliance, the current political environment and the shift in the compliance landscape and compliance enforcement. Also discussed are best practices that can be applied to streamline and automate tasks and take some of the pain out of the entire process.
