With All the Focus on GDPR, Let’s Not Forget SOX!

At ETHIX360, we’re often asked by companies why systems like CaseTrac are so important to implement.  Are they optional?  A “nice to have?”  Or required?  There is not a simple answer to this.


Tips for Preventing a Hostile Work Environment

Tips for Preventing a Hostile Work Environment

As an employer or supervisor, it’s your responsibility to create a work environment that’s free of all types of harassment, including verbal, physical, and sexual harassment. If you want your employees to do their jobs well, they need to feel safe and respected when dealing with their colleagues every day. If you don’t deal with and actively prevent harassment in the workplace, you could be held liable if you or one of your employees is accused of harassing another employee. Reduce all types of harassment in the workplace by setting and enforcing strict guidelines, communicating effectively with your employees, and by establishing a means for dealing with and responding to harassment complaints...

GDPR +7…. Is it safe to remove your biohazard suit and goggles yet?

GDPR +7…. Is it safe to remove your biohazard suit and goggles yet?

There’s different types of companies out there – there are some who saw this coming, took it seriously, made changes in process, upgraded technologies, and for those of us who did take this very seriously, we woke up May 26, 2018 the same way we woke up January 1, 2000.  The coffee pot worked – only now it was a Keurig and not a Mr. Coffee, ESPN was still on – only now on a QLED curved screen and not a projection TV the size of a walk in closet, and the sun rose.

How to Be Sure You’re GDPR Compliant

How to Be Sure You’re GDPR Compliant

The European Union has updated its consumer data privacy regulations. The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a robust piece of legislation that’s setting a new standard for how EU companies manage and protect their customers’ data. The EU is known for imposing considerably more strict cybersecurity protocols compared to the U.S. But many of the companies that conduct business in the EU do not have the digital infrastructure in place to comply with the new law. And time is running out. Since adopting the GDPR in April of 2016, the EU wants companies to be GDPR-compliant by May 25th of 2018. So, if your company is conducting online transactions in the EU, you should take a moment to learn about the GDPR and the steps you can take to comply with the law.

Who Needs to Have an Active Shooter Response Policy?  EVERYONE

What happened in Parkland was horrific.  So was what happened at Sandy Hook.  At Columbine.  At Virginia Tech. You know the names and I don’t need to list everyone to make the point.  But here’s another thing you should consider – now, every time you hear “active shooter,” whether it’s paired with alert, response, drill or anything else, you default think of schools.  Of children...

The Best Defense against #METOO

When I took this topic on, I thought first “what would people expect a 50 something white male to say about defending themselves against #METOO?”  Would they wonder if I had enacted too many episodes of Mad Men and now wondered how to cover my tracks, and would they be looking for tips and tricks on how to do the same?   But those who know me will more than likely read this and wonder what a father of three daughters in their 20’s and 30’s – all of whom are in the workforce ...

Celebrate Compliance and Ethics Week in Good Company

I like knowing that what I do for my company has a direct and positive impact, and something most of us seek throughout our careers.  To me, policies and procedures (P&P) aren’t boring check-the-box documents. Rather, they have a much bigger influence on the company and its growth than many would think.  Whether you have five or 500,000 employees, a strong P&P management program is a must.  I’ve met a lot of business owners throughout my career that have a flawed view of ...

Summer Dress Codes… or When is Too Little Too Much?

As I write this, the heat index in Washington DC, where I live, is close to 100 degrees.  It is sweltering, humid and downright miserable.  So I reflected on our staff, and the thousands of others suffering in the dog days of summer, and how employers relax their dress codes – and more importantly how even a relaxed dress code can be abused or create a recipe for ...
