LF272 will be useful for both novices seeking to understand the breadth and depth of a compliance program early in a compliance initiative and experienced compliance managers, attorneys, and others interested in benchmarking their compliance programs against industry best practices. Typical attendees might include evangelists for open source compliance, existing or prospective compliance managers and members of a company’s open source review board, members of the law department, supply chain, IT, engineering, product management organizations, and process and quality managers. LF272 provides an overview of open source compliance. Potential attendees who are interested in a detailed and interactive discussion of implementation issues in constructing compliance programs should consider the one-day and two-day compliance training options.
