Broadcast Date: Wednesday, June 22, 2022 from 12:00 pm to 1:30 pm (ET)


The Biden administration considers corruption a top threat to national security that impacts the economy, the global anti-poverty development initiatives, and the overall democratic ideologies. To address this issue, the administration further elevates its enforcement efforts to counter corruption, including the amendment of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA). Businesses and other organizations concerned should, therefore, be well-versed with any developments in this area to stay compliant and keep legal risks at bay.

Join a panel of key thought leaders and distinguished professionals organized by The Knowledge Group as they provide a comprehensive discussion of the latest trends and developments surrounding FCPA under the Biden administration. Speakers, among other things, will offer practical compliance strategies in this ever-changing regulatory landscape.

Key issues that will be covered in this course are:

  • FCPA Latest Enforcement Trends Under the Biden Administration
  • Understanding the Implications of Corruption in the National Security
  • FCPA Amendments and Other Notable Changes
