I’d be willing to wager that if you look in the upper-right corner of this page, 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 making an investment in the news, interviews, analysis, case studies, 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. Starting in August and running at least through the end of September, we’re letting our content do the persuading for us by offering 30-day free trial memberships. 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 signing up for a 30-day, no-risk membership. If you like what you see and want to stick with us, there’s no need to do anything. Your trial will automatically roll into a $499 annual membership. If we’re not for you, then cancel anytime within those 30 days, and you will never be charged. It’s a win-win proposition.

If you’re an infrequent visitor, one big change you will notice is we no longer offer one free article per month for anonymous users. We’ve made an investment in our journalism to deliver members valuable content, and we’re asking you to make a small commitment (at no risk, remember) to gain access to these resources. Our weekly live webcasts will remain free for all users, as will our homepage and GRC appointment blogs.

This membership access includes an immersive case study on a ransomware attack that depicts a fictional cyber breach with real-life takeaways, our recent four-part report on one prominent shipping company’s ESG journey, and our “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 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.

Are we taking a gamble in granting free 30-day access to 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 be 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.

Happy reading!
