New York, NY, April 13, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- The Knowledge Group/The Knowledge Congress Live Webcast Series, the leading producer of regulatory focused webcasts, announced today that it has scheduled a live webcast entitled FCPA Actions and New Compliance Guidelines : Are You Prepared?. This two-hour event is scheduled on August 25, 2011 at 3:00 PM - 5:00 PM ET.
In November 2010, the joint effort of DOJ and the SEC has resolved several investigations wherein international companies pleaded guilty to the violation of anti-bribery provisions under the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA). With these latest FCPA actions in mind, foreign companies as well as their subsidiaries and affiliates face considerable challenges in creating and implementing effective FCPA compliance guidelines.
In live webcast, the Knowledge Group is assembling a panel of distinguished thought leaders and key regulators to help foreign companies and others which are bound to abide by the FCPA understand new compliance guidelines.
Companies and their executive team may have to completely overhaul their compliance guidelines to prevent their business from falling into the pitfalls of FCPA actions.
Thierry Olivier Desmet, Assistant Regional Director, FCPA Unit, Enforcement Division, U.S. Securities & Exchange Commission
Sharie A. Brown, Partner/Chair, Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA), Anti-Corruption and Corporate Compliance Practice, DLA Piper
Kevin Bennett, Executive Director, Advisory Services – Forensics & Litigation, Grant Thornton LLP
