The Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) is the primary tool employed by the U.S Department of Justice and Securities Exchange Commission to combat international corruption. In the last decade, the fines and penalties imposed by the enforcement agencies for FCPA violations have skyrocketed. As heightened FCPA enforcement enters its second decade, the FBI has announced three new specialized “squads” to actively seek out FCPA violations. Now more than ever, recognizing the signs of potential FCPA violations - so-called red flags - is crucial. Every company doing business overseas must develop the tools to identify red flags and take appropriate steps to address them in order to avoid costly FCPA violations.
In this two-hour live webcast, a panel of distinguished professionals and thought leaders will help companies better understand the important aspects of this significant topic. They will provide an in-depth discussion of the FCPA. Speakers will also offer practical steps for dealing with common FCPA red flags.
Key issues that will be covered in this course are:
Foreign Corrupt Practices Act – An Overview
FCPA Anti-bribery Provisions
Common Red Flags
Practical Risk Mitigation Strategies
FCPA Violations, Enforcement Actions and Penalties
