    The attention on the C-suite is much needed, most welcome.

    Just one thing I would add: The emphasis here is on the actions of C-level executives -- their behavior -- but their communications deserve equal attention. In other words, they must appreciate that the risk to themselves and their companies is enormous even their actions are beyond reproach. They must give thought to their documents -- any form of recorded communication, including what they consider their most private communications. They must continually ask themselves: How might this sound if it were to find its way to government regulators? -- to shareholders? -- to readers of a news article? -- to a jury?

    Ill-considered communications -- thoughts or expressions susceptible to misinterpretation or to being blown out of proportion -- even when intended to be private, pose almost as great a risk as ill-considered action.
