Why You Should Attend
Effective compliance and ethics programs are essential to companies of all kinds and are widely expected of companies wishing to be viewed as “good corporate citizens.” 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, as well as assisting organizations in mitigating the harm from violations when they do occur.
Companies with robust C&E programs minimize the likelihood of devastating criminal and regulatory actions — and also reap the rewards 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 and academia. They will provide you with the tools you need to enhance your program, protect your company and further your professional development.
What You Will Learn
- New standards and recent case law — both in the U.S. and elsewhere – including a “deep dive” into recent Department of Justice compliance program criteria
- How to design, conduct, and utilize the results of C&E risk assessments
- Creating a risk-based training and communications plan and how to measure the efficacy of training
