Health and safety in the workplace, statutory accounting and tax provision, compliance with governmental and regulatory authority requirements; in the modern business world, more and more professional corporate governance is expected of individual company directors. ITIC’s D&O policy includes legal costs coverage to help respond to regulatory inquiry.
