Anti-Corruption and Compliance: The Changing Landscape

Anti-Corruption and Compliance: The Changing Landscape

With more aggressive domestic and international enforcement and an increase in regulatory, transactional and reputational requirements for anti-bribery and corruption (ABC) risks, the need for companies to develop and implement a robust ABC compliance program has never been more important. Additionally, with the changing global business environment and demand for greater transparency and accountability, having a robust ABC compliance program is now becoming a competitive business advantage.

This makes it easier for organization to secure funding and insurance as well as manage M&A and joint venture relationships. Additionally, robust compliance measures and ethical business practices will not only mitigate corruption and other legal and reputational risks but are more likely to protect the company from potential prosecution with the introduction of  Remediation Agreements.

This session will provide participants with an overview of the costs and consequences of corruption as well as how robust anti-corruption measures and ethical business practices can protect and add value to a company.  From learning about the new regulatory landscape to the latest trends and best practices in compliance measures, participants will gain a clear understanding on the benefits of compliance and ethics.
