In this episode, Matt Kelly and I take a deep dive into the good, bad and ugly of Hurricane Harvey for the compliance professional. We discuss what lessons may be drawn from the storm and its aftermath for the greater compliance, ERM and business communities and the need to take a much greater holistic approach to the consideration of your risk management strategy. We end with some thoughts on the travails of Salt Lake City nurse Alex Wubbels who was arrested for obeying the law in refusing to take blood from an unconscious patient.  We consider her plight from the compliance perspective.
