The Online Compliance Consortium (OCC) is a business model designed for a regulated world.
The OCC collaboratively develops compliance and risk management training, tools and technology for the world's leading law firms. Representing 9 of the 10 magic circle firms, 60 of the top 100 UK firms and 24 of the top 25 US firms, the OCC applies a methodology that is designed to satisfy regulatory requirements whilst meeting the specific needs and quality standards of the world's leading law firms.
Compliance and risk management is best achieved when enough businesses in a profession or industry work together pragmatically to create the necessary tools that set best practice standards.
The OCC Core Group model allows like firms to share financial, intellectual and human resources to create solutions that directly satisfy their combined requirements. Since its inception in 2003 the OCC has spawned 10 Core Groups:
The OCC Risk Management System (RMS) is designed to allow a Compliance Team to efficiently manage risk and demonstrate to management and its regulator how it is doing so. The RMS evidences and tracks the control procedures and related activities the firm has put in place offering presentation-quality reporting and a complete audit trail.
VinciWorks' Risk Consulting Team can assist Compliance Officers in building and maintaining their Compliance Plan, Compliance Gap Analysis, Risk Register and Control Procedures, to ensure firms are using the RMS to the best of its capabilities and are prepared for regulators.
The RMS is cloud-based and secure with an intuitive web interface and advanced user-management capabilities which centralises access-control, communications, follow-up, alerts, reporting and audit capabilities as a complete and dynamic solution to replace the static Excel-based Risk Registers in place at many firms.
Based on the detailed specifications, features and functional requirements of 26 of the UK's leading law firms, VinciWorks designed and built the highly flexible OCC Learning Management System (LLMS) so that it could satisfy the unique needs of any professional firm.
The LLMS allows a firm to upload any format of learning content, automatically deploy, track, follow up and report on progress, scores, CPD, CLE and course completion whilst maintaining a detailed audit trail.
The LLMS includes VinciWorks unique "Nagware" that dynamically generates escalating reminders, and alerts that literally nag users to achieve compliance based on any event or non-event and or date.
Including Anti-Money Laundering, Anti-Bribery, Data Protection, Risk Management, Solicitors Accounts Rules, the OCC online compliance suite of training courses are tailored to the needs of professional firms and designed to satisfy regulatory requirements whilst meeting the quality standards of the world's leading law firms.
