New York, NY, May 26, 2018 --(PR.com
)-- The Knowledge Group/The Knowledge Congress Live Webcast Series, brings together the world's leading authorities and industry participants through informative webcasts. It has scheduled a live webcast entitled: “Forensic Accounting & Litigation: Hot Buttons in 2018 Live Webcast.” This event is scheduled on Tuesday, June 19, 2018 at 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm (ET).
Enforcement activity by the United States Department of Justice and the United States Securities & Exchange Commission slowed a bit during 2017, likely resulting from the change in administration. Despite this decline in 2017, both agencies continue to have strong enforcement agendas in several key areas.
In this live webcast, a panel of CPAs and attorneys assembled by The Knowledge Group will offer the audience helpful insights on recent enforcement trends and practical insights for companies that may be faced with the prospect of a government investigation. The webcast will focus on how companies should respond to and appropriately investigate an event in today’s regulatory environment. The speakers will also discuss the government’s focus on assessing a company’s compliance and ethics program during an investigation, and how that might impact the government’s enforcement actions, and the importance of a sound remediation plan to address issues that are the subject of the investigation. Finally, the speakers will discuss the possibility of the government requiring the appointment of an independent monitor for a company’s ongoing remediation efforts.
