Introducing the
2021 Compliance Benchmark Report

In this ever-changing business and compliance landscape, you may be wondering: How can my organization stay on top of compliance requirements?


In A-LIGN’s first Compliance Benchmark Report, we asked over 200 cybersecurity, IT, quality assurance (QA), internal audit, finance, and other professionals about their compliance programs. We asked about their organizations, how they run their programs, and the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on their compliance plans.


In this report, we’re bringing together a benchmark by industry to see where your organization stands, an analysis of key findings, and a set of best practices that any organization can use to improve their compliance program in 2021 and beyond.

The pandemic changed the world in 2020, but compliance projects continued driving on.
