New York, NY, February 03, 2019 --(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: Trends, Developments and Updates in the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act: What You Need to Know. This event is scheduled on February 22, 2019 from 12:00 pm to 1:30 pm ET.
The recent years have seen the evolving landscape of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) as well as the rise of international anti-corruption enforcement. With the revisions to the U.S. Corporate Enforcement Policy in November 2017, which aimed to “increase the volume of voluntary disclosures” and “enhance the Department of Justice’s (DOJ) ability to identify and punish culpable individuals,” several FCPA-related cases have been noted. Other notable developments include the new guidance for monitors’ compliance role and tightened Yates Memo requirements. Moreover, international cooperation against corruption has also heightened.
With the increasing scrutiny of corrupt practices, companies must be proactive in addressing potential risks and pitfalls. They must also keep themselves abreast of the recent trends and enforcement actions to avoid FCPA liabilities.
In this Live Webcast, a panel of distinguished professionals and thought leaders organized by The Knowledge Group will provide an in-depth discussion of the new FCPA corporate enforcement policy. They will offer best practices in developing and implementing compliance and control procedures in light of recent trends, developments and international updates, to help them avoid pitfalls.
