Taking Your Compliance Program to the Next Level
Join Palmina Fava, partner in Vinson & Elkins’ Government Investigations & White Collar Criminal Defense practice, for a panel discussion entitled, “Taking Your Compliance Program to the Next Level,” hosted by the Practising Law Institute (PLI) as part of The Foreign Corrupt Practices Act and International Anti-Corruption Developments 2020 program.
The Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (“FCPA”) is at the top of most companies’ key risk areas. The DOJ and SEC remain focused on investigating violations and enforcement of the law. As more countries and international organizations ramp up their anti-corruption enforcement the need for effective anti-corruption programs grows. This program, taught by a faculty of leading practitioners, in-house counsel, and government officials, will give you the knowledge and tools you need to spot the issues early, develop workable risk management processes, plan and manage internal investigations, and implement effective compliance programs.
Topics will include:
- Rethinking risk assessments
- Effective but efficient diligence on third parties
- Overcoming “training fatigue” for employees and business partners
- Focus on gatekeepers
- Effective testing and monitoring of ABC program
- Benchmarking your program – resources, structure, and scope
