I’d be willing to wager that if you look in the upper-right corner of the page you’re reading, it will show you’re not currently logged in to the Compliance Week Website, which means you probably aren’t a paying member.
And hey, that’s OK! It’s our job to convince you what we have to offer is worth taking out your credit card and making an investment in the news, interviews, analysis, Webcasts, newsletters, and in-depth reporting we provide that will help you better do your jobs as compliance and risk professionals. Our talented team of writers, editors, and designers make it their mission to serve those who serve the cause of ethics and compliance, and they do it better than anyone.
But don’t take my word for it. For the month of August, we’re letting our content do the persuading for us—we’re tearing down the paywall. Starting Monday, you can access every available resource—our entire archive of news, benchmarking surveys, special reports, case studies, Webcasts, digital versions of past magazine issues, everything—by simply creating a free account and signing in. No need to pull out that credit card.
This “open house” access includes our long-form case studies on Carnival Cruise’s compliance redemption and Volkswagen’s high-profile monitorship in the wake of the Dieselgate scandal. It also includes our recent “Witness to Wrongdoing” series on the plight of whistleblowers—from identifying misconduct to reporting and enduring subsequent hardships. It’s all hard-hitting, well-reported journalism you’ll be glad you perused.
You’ll have access to our library of Webcasts, which all offer CPE credits, on topics ranging from ESG and third-party risk to best practices data retention policies to recent regulatory change and what it will mean for your business.
We’ll even give a handful of people who register on the site in August complementary access to our new “Cyber-security Best Practices for the Compliance Practitioner” digital training module, which will launch mid-month. It’s CW’s first-ever eLearning product, and it’s designed specifically for the compliance practitioner who’s also a cyber-risk decision-maker.
Are we taking a big gamble in granting free access to all this high-value content? Far from it. We’re confident once you get a taste of the top-shelf writing, reporting, and actionable takeaways targeted specifically to chief compliance officers, you’ll choose to stick with us for the long haul.
I also invite you to reach out to me personally with any questions or suggestions on how we can make CW even more helpful as you take on the increasingly challenging job of doing the right thing for the right reasons.
