By adhering to good business ethics, external investors feel confident about their investments in the market. Ignorance or deliberate non-compliance with laws can lead to legal consequences for entrepreneurs. We`ve talked about the legal implications of compliance and the importance of understanding these compliance issues when planning your IT security project. Since these issues are numerous, industry-specific, and constantly evolving, we will not go into the specific compliance data in this book. We summarize some of the most common ones in this section, just in case you missed them earlier. We have also provided web links for you to learn more about these standards. There can be serious legal issues related to compliance and non-compliance, so consult with your firm`s legal counsel to determine which regulations apply to your firm. You may want to complete the internal assessment before contacting your attorney to fully understand the types of information stored by your network and the criticality of that information. For example, if your company recently started stocking segments of people`s medical records as part of a new business partnership with another company, you`ll likely need to comply with HIPAA (and possibly others). Recent changes to your company`s operations may have drawn you into areas where regulation and compliance are mandatory, so be sure to do a full assessment here. There are non-profit organizations all over the world.
The not-for-profit sector has been shown to vary within and between nations, regions, cities and neighbourhoods. Sectoral variation may refer to the number of organizations in a field and their activities or characteristics. Non-profit research has shown that industry differences may be due to both general societal patterns and more specific factors. General patterns include historical development and social, economic and political factors such as: class relations; interactions between the State and society; the nature of the legal environment; and legitimacy and confidence in the collective action of non-governmental and non-profit organizations. More specific factors include government policies on the financing of social benefits and service delivery; the degree of social heterogeneity; the generosity of parts of the Community; the needs and desires for public or semi-public goods, either of disadvantaged citizens or of citizens of the middle and upper classes; and resources available to not-for-profit organizations, including financial, labour and social entrepreneurs. The non-profit research was conducted primarily by sociologists, economists, historians and political scientists. Much of the work is still at the descriptive level. Research has not found its place in the dominant geography. Both the not-for-profit research community and geography, particularly cultural and economic geography, would benefit from closer coordination of their respective research priorities.
The legal environment of a business indicates a dual objective set by the government that helps the business to thrive, which benefits citizens either through job creation or through a service. In negative connotations, the legal environment, especially in socialist or mixed economies, can limit or hinder business growth. The Green Court, established in 2010 under the National Green Court Act 2010, oversees environmental matters in India. The political, legal and regulatory environment can have a big influence on how you conduct your business. Companies must comply with the laws and regulations of each country in which they operate. Rules and regulations can change frequently and are often ambiguous. They also depend on a country`s political culture. Many industries are heavily regulated around the world, such as banking and finance, utilities, transportation, oil and gas, and mining. Regulation will have a significant impact on your business model. In addition, the legal system may vary from country to country (e.g. civil law, common law, religious law) and often requires very specific expertise. The introduction of new tax laws can change the basis of your investment decisions.
Also, in some countries, it may be more difficult for you to protect your organization`s intellectual property. A more extreme example is when the countries where you do business are involved in conflicts such as war, civil war, and revolutions – this can completely invalidate initially very wise business decisions. The legal environment is an important factor in the establishment or conduct of business by a person or organization in a given country. The legal environment in one country is different from that of another.
