Over the past 5 years, the DOJ and the SEC have investigated a large number of violations of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act as a result of the government’s intense campaign to wipe out corruption not only in the U.S. but also in countries where U.S. companies maintain branch offices. Indeed, FCPA is the most dreaded of all white collar crimes, imposing civil and criminal penalties to anyone who violates its provisions. How can your company be compliant with the global requirements?
Find out the answers in this Live webinar. Once again, The Knowledge Congress is assembling a panel of distinguished professionals and key regulators to help you determine whether your company is globally compliant or not, and if not, what are the steps you need to take in order to comply with global standards.
