An article in the Harvard Business Review illustrates how inadequate internal monitoring can have negative consequences for companies even years after any alleged wrongdoing. The author notes that executives must be proactive in their compliance efforts and “not engage in willful ignorance and indifference with the hope the problem will remain hidden.” Problems that arise from insufficient governance can quickly snowball if they are not acknowledged and dealt with immediately.
