Complicated and changing business environment forces businesses to continuously identify and effectively manage legal and regulatory compliance risks. Corporate crimes and non-compliance risks caused many businesses around the world to incur financial losses and/or damage their reputation. Corporate governance, on the other hand, requires businesses to develop and apply governance structures to enable all stakeholders (shareholders, board of directors, management, employees, creditors, government, other third party, etc) to effectively assume their responsibilities and practice and protect their rights.

According to the Organization of Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), corporate governance involves a set of relationships between a company’s management, its board, its shareholders and other stakeholders.

Corporate governance also provides the structure through which the objectives of the company are set, and the means of attaining those objectives and monitoring performance are determined. Good corporate governance should provide proper incentives for the board and management to pursue objectives that are in the interests of the company and its shareholders and should facilitate effective monitoring.
