Overview:

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:

  • The Biden Administration’s Corruption Strategy
  • DOJ’s New Resources for Compliance Issues
  • What Hasn’t Changed
  • Latest FCPA Enforcement Trends
  • Understanding the Implications of Biden’s Strategy and Enforcement Trends:
    • Impact on Compliance Programs – how to put your organization in the best position
