Description

Since 1977 the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) has haunted United States Corporations. With the SEC and DOJ handing out fines and sanctions against companies, it is a bad idea to be on the wrong side of this law as the penalties and impact to business as usual will be severely disrupted. This session will help you understand how this law actually effects doing business overseas. The two main provisions involve accounting transparency bribing foreign officials. Understand the practical steps you need to take to prevent a conflict with the new FCPA Corporate Enforcement policy. Veteran Chief Audit Executive Charles Silvey will provide you perspective and give you practical guidance to reduce your company’s risk. This event may be a rebroadcast of a live event and the instructor will be available to answer your questions during the event.

Highlights

  • Learn the history of the FCPA
  • Understand the fines, penalties and enforcement process
  • Building a Risk Assessed Compliance Framework
  • FCPA Corporate Enforcement Policy
  • Avoid FCPA enforcement actions
