Webinar Details

How much time and effort are diverted from normal required tasks when you have to prepare for an examination? Even with virtual examinations, the more time examiners spend with you, the less time you are spending on the core mission. But with smart preparation, more scrutiny doesn’t have to mean more time spent on compliance.

This webinar will cut through the “regulatory speak” and show how concentrated preparation around key regulatory and operational issues can put examiners at ease and get you back to focusing on the mission first. Don’t be caught ill-prepared for the new realities of regulatory examinations. Join us for a review of the current regulatory climate, core regulatory concerns, and best practices for planning, preparing, and engaging with the examination team.
