Things have picked up quite quickly here at the International Governance and Compliance Association (AGRC).

We’ve had a busy first year of existence, getting to know many of our colleagues and establishing solid relationships with multiple organizations working in the GRC world and beyond.

In Issue Two, we shine a bright light on several of our members via our exclusive interview series and touch upon Environment, Sustainability and Governance (ESG) issues and how they have become a cornerstone for businesses across the globe.

This issue’s ESG content will tie in nicely with our upcoming webinar titled The Past, Present and Future of ESG, starring a couple of experts that are ready to share their Latin American and European perspectives on this trending topic. It’s not too late for you to book your spot, so hop to it.

We’ve also covered some of the latest news coming from Europe on the region’s efforts to curtail cybercrime and money laundering via the creation of specialized task forces and agencies destined to combatting both.

Finally, our second issue offers those newbies among us some tips on what it takes to become a compliance expert, set up a compliance function for your firm, and work in what’s becoming an even more highly regulated world.
