    Event Synopsis:
    The upsurge of corporate enforcement actions and sanctions last year simply implies the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and the Department of Justice's (DOJ) heightened efforts in enforcing anti-corruption regulations set forth in the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA). Over the past years, the FCPA jurisdiction also expanded to foreign corporations, making non-US entities and individuals exposed to risks and severe penalties. Thus, it is imperative for domestic and foreign entities to ensure strict adherence to the FCPA. Establishing a comprehensive FCPA compliance program could also be helpful in managing crucial issues and mitigating legal pitfalls.

    In this LIVE Webcast, a panel of distinguished professionals and thought leaders assembled by The Knowledge Group will provide the audience with an overview of the latest trends and critical issues with respect to the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act. Speakers will also offer best practices in developing and implementing an effective FCPA compliance program.

    Key topics include:
    -Foreign Corrupt Practices Act – An Overview
    -Key Regulatory Issues
    -Latest Enforcement Actions
    -Risk Mitigation Techniques
    -Best Compliance Practices
    -Recent Trends and Developments
