Recommended Prerequisite: Knowledge of, and experience with, corporate ethics and compliance programs and anti-corruption activities
Field of Study: Management Services
The U.S. and many European countries are requiring that companies create effective ethics and compliance programs to address bribery, corruption and ethical failures. This session will explore the value of using independent assessments as a tool to proactively examine the strength of a company’s ethical
culture and the effectiveness of its anti-fraud and corruption activities.
Presented by the former inspector general of a U.S. federal agency who now serves as an independent corporate monitor and assesses ethics and compliance programs globally, the session will provide you with real-life case studies and scenarios to teach companies how to prepare for and maximize the value of engaging an independent assessment of their corporate anti-fraud and corruption program
