Event Synopsis:

With the Trump Administration giving more emphasis on anti-corruption, enforcement actions by the U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) have continuously heightened in the first quarter of 2018. New criminal charges against FCPA violators were recently released by the Department of Justice (DOJ). The anti-corruption crackdown is further intensified with the collaboration between the U.S. and foreign agencies in imposing penalties to violators.

Companies in the U.S and abroad should be abreast of the ever-evolving regulatory landscape in anti-corruption law. They should also revisit their compliance practices and integrate anti-corruption mechanisms to avoid sanctions.

In this LIVE Webcast, a panel of distinguished professionals and thought leaders organized by The Knowledge Group will provide an in-depth discussion of the significant trends and updates in the global anti-corruption compliance landscape. Speakers will dig deeper as they provide best compliance practices to prevent risks and pitfalls.

Key topics include:

 Global Anti-Corruption Law: Legal Primer
 Recent Enforcement Trends and Updates
 Global Anti-Corruption Mechanisms
 Notable Rulings and Court Decisions
 Best Compliance Practices
 Compliance Risk Factors
 What Lies Ahead?
