Compliance has been an ongoing discourse in the banking sector (and, the financial services industry, in general) since the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002. Both a mantra and curse, financial institutions continue to struggle to maintain best practices across all sectors. But few companies understand that SOX is not just about reporting financials correctly, it's also about attesting that your enterprise is in compliance with copyright, trademark and other intellectual property rights.
How hard could it be to remain compliant? System migrations, M&A activities, buyouts-all of these events can cause non-compliance.
