Program on Technological Compliance

Identify the technological risks faced by a company and establish internal prevention, control, management and reaction mechanisms

Some of the risks that concern the most in the business field are those related to technology, either due to their particularities or due to constant change and evolution; they pose a significant challenge. It is useless to have theoretically implemented a complete and sophisticated Compliance system if we do not know the current practical reality and the dangers posed by current and future technologies.

Technological Compliance is responsible for identifying the technological risks that a company faces.

Faced with these technological risks, the knowledge to establish internal mechanisms for prevention, control, management and reaction to risks are, if possible, more important. On the one hand, it is an area in which threats are multiple and very diverse, and in addition, they change, and new risks appear continuously. On the other hand, the nature of the control measures makes it necessary to have certain knowledge to understand their objective and operation. Finally, the legal provisions that imply obligations in the technological field are increasing. Ultimately, it is about protecting the company against all technological risks and challenges, including regulatory ones.
