The first eBook in the series was very well-received and I know this 2nd volume will prove equally useful in helping directors and officers avoid the hazards that go with the job.

Specialty Technical Publishers, premier North American publisher of audit, compliance and risk solutions, today announced the release of a follow-up eBook for Directors and Officers – the second in a popular two-part series.
Written by compliance expert and attorney, Jon Elliott, Ways to Keep Out of Trouble (Volume II) provides practical information for directors and officers, designed to arm them with the knowledge they need to avoid the risk of personal liability for corporate mistakes.
Volume I in the series discussed the wide variety of ways that directors and officers can get into trouble. While these cover a range of possible problems, they boil down to two distinct standards:
- Personal standards: the individual’s own actions or inactions.
- Organizational standards: in situations where a failure to meet a standard might lead to personal liability for the director or officer based on their role and responsibilities within the organization.
Ways to Keep Out of Trouble (Volume II) focuses in detail on the preventative measures and procedures directors and officers can put in place to reduce the fallout from corporate missteps. The eBook includes insights on:
- Corporate Codes of Ethics and Business Conduct
- Legal Compliance Programs
- Organizational Risk Management
“The first eBook in the series was very well-received and I know this 2nd volume will prove equally useful in helping directors and officers avoid the hazards that go with the job.” Deon Kopke, CEO and President of Specialty Technical Publishers (STP)
The new eBook includes six easy-to-use checklists which encourage best practice by increasing understanding of the applicable standards.
