Anti-Corruption Compliance: Trends and Developments in 2017 Webinar
The Knowledge Group, Hughes Hubbard & Reed, and Paul Hastings present "Anti-Corruption Compliance: Trends and Developments in 2017" webcast on Monday August 21, 2017 at 3:00pm ET.
Aggressive enforcement of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act continues in 2017, and every U.S. company that does business outside the country is subject to its reach. The FCPA’s anti-bribery provisions require only minimal proof of “corrupt intent” in giving things of value to foreign government official, and companies have been prosecuted even for very small bribes. The law also makes it illegal for a company that reports to the Securities & Exchange Commission to have false or inaccurate books or records or to fail to maintain a system of internal accounting controls. Prosecutions and civil actions under the FCPA have risen steadily in the past eight years, as have penalties imposed by the SEC and the Department of Justice. A stand-alone anti-corruption compliance policy is a must, especially for US companies doing business in countries that expose them to a high risk of corruption.
In this two-hour LIVE Webcast, a panel of thought leaders brought together by The Knowledge Group will review recent FCPA litigation and enforcement developments. They will also give guidance on how companies can foster a culture of compliance through planning, training and setting up internal controls and due-diligence procedures, thereby reducing the risk of falling into the statute’s maw.

Foreign Corrupt Practices Act
