Robust and forward-looking risk and compliance programs are more important than ever in today's rapidly evolving business landscape. Acts such as the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) provides the critical oversight needed to help regulate the marketplace. In November 2012, the US Department of Justice (DOJ) and the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) released a thorough and extensive FCPA Resource Guide. This highly anticipated guide addresses the parameters that the DOJ and SEC consider to be predominant when creating and defining an effective ethics and compliance program.

In order to effectively manage risk and ensure compliance, organizations around the world need to stay current with the latest regulatory developments. This webinar will cover the FCPA Resource Guide's examination and will discuss what constitutes an effective compliance and ethics program. This webinar discussion will also explore some practical tactics for business leaders who wish to use the Guide to enhance their overall compliance and risk programs.

Join expert Rebecca Walker, Partner at Kaplan & Walker, LLP and Timothy Schmutzler, Regional VP of GRC Solutions at MetricStream as they discuss the implications of The FCPA Resource Guide. Additional topics for discussion include:

  • Oversight of the program and how to ensure independence and authority for individual programs
  • Implementing codes and policies supported by robust training programs
  • Reporting procedures and investigations of misconduct
  • Enforcing discipline and creating effective incentives
  • The necessity of due diligence in mergers and acquisitions
  • How to streamline and optimize your organization's compliance program
