Why You Should Attend

Effective compliance and ethics programs are essential to companies of all kinds. Such programs help organizations prevent, detect and respond in an effective manner to misconduct. Compliance and ethics (“C&E”) programs are a necessary tool for managing the substantial risks that can be posed by employee and third-party misconduct, and assisting organizations in mitigating the harm from violations when they occur.

Companies with robust C&E programs minimize the likelihood of devastating criminal and regulatory actions — and also reap the reward of employee loyalty and customer and shareholder trust.  At this Workshop, experienced compliance officers and in-house and law firm attorneys working in the compliance field will learn about best C&E practices from faculty drawn from major corporations, law firms, academia, and the government.  They will provide you with the tools you need to enhance your program, protect your company and further your professional development.
