They must understand the institution’s compliance risks, confirm that appropriate monitoring and testing are conducted, and ensure that both internal and external changes are properly managed. A working knowledge of the numerous compliance regulations is essential to ensure that the institution is generating compliant documents. In addition, communication with the board, management, and staff is a critical element of success.
