  • (1888PressRelease) September 19, 2017 - 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 The Foreign Corrupt Practices Act: Understanding Key Issues and Ensuring Compliance in 2017 and Beyond LIVE Webcast.

    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 issues that will be covered in this course are:
    -Foreign Corrupt Practices Act An Overview
    -Key Regulatory Issues
    -Latest Enforcement Actions
    -Risk Mitigation Techniques
    -Best Compliance Practices
    -Recent Trends and Developments
