Compliance & Risk Management: Two Functions, One Strategy

Compliance & Risk Management: Two Functions, One Strategy

Compliance and risk management are two distinct functions that should be unified by one risk management strategy. A risk-based approach is a common risk management strategy in highly-regulated industries that optimally facilitates compliance while also mitigating other risks. A properly implemented risk-based approach creates a broader level of protection for the business, employees, and investors from reputational, administrative, civil, and criminal penalties.

Make Risk-Based Decisions Part of Your Culture and Stop Firefighting

For commercial cannabis businesses to succeed, risk management should be incorporated into every employee’s job. This helps every cannabis operator reduce public harm, increase public safety, and maintain a sound licensed cannabis market that is profitable to operate in. Risk management isn’t built in a day, but the sooner you start, the sooner everyone gets to do their job.
