Our history

Planet Compliance was founded in 2016 as a destination for compliance, risk and governance news and resources focused on the financial services industry.

It subsequently became clear that there was a need for a destination for compliance professionals regardless of their industry so our focus was widened and we now serve 80,000+ GRC professionals across dozens of industries.
