    Event Synopsis:
    Following the various developments during fiscal years 2016 and 2017, practitioners agree that global anti-corruption compliance and enforcement continues to be in an upward trend this 2018.

They will provide an in-depth discussion of the most notable investigation and enforcement actions during the first phase of 2018. Speakers will also offer best practices in developing and implementing an effective compliance program to help them dodge the effects of such actions.

    Key topics include:
    - Using technology in FCPA investigations, compliance and due diligence
    - A myriad of ways to hide bribery
    - Whistleblower statistics 2017
    - DOJ Enhanced Guidance
    - Investigative & Forensic Accounting Techniques - Anti-Corruption
