A rise in stricter global regulations surrounding corruption and bribery has led to increased enforcement of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA), amongst other anti-bribery and anti-corruption laws, for US-based companies operating across borders.  The existence of corruption within your business, whether it is internal or through third-party relationships, can pose financial, reputational and operational risks, in addition to compliance risks.

Join us for this 60-minute webinar to hear about strategies for identifying corruption risks and how to improve compliance with anti-corruption and anti-bribery regulations.  Our panelists will discuss how to develop policies and procedures to prevent and mitigate risks related to corruption and bribery; how to talk to and train employees to support your business in minimizing these risks; and how to promote compliance with these regulations to improve your business overall.

Educational Objectives:
Webinar participants will learn:
• The relevant domestic and global regulatory landscape related to anti-corruption and bribery;

• Tactics for mitigating corruption risks and ensuring compliance.
